Approves of CEO

I worked at Mindjet full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Mindjet is one of the top tech companies in the bay area. Mindjet has the culture, the people and the drive to make an excellent product. The team is motivated, smart and genuinely nice. I highly recommend an engineering position at Mindjet (and the benefits are excellent).

Cons

For me, far from family.

Advice to Management

Frequent candid interactive meetings with the engineering team about direction and business goals.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pleasant office space, mostly down-to-earth co-workers, established medium-sized company, perks like free lunch, happy hours and yoga, aggressively seeking an equity event

    Cons

    A lot of turnover, schizophrenic and frequent strategy changes, silo'ed teams, passive middle management, limited understanding and concern for customer base, moving rapidly from developer-centric culture to marketing-centric one

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your core competency and stop blowing in the blogosphere winds.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Mindjet full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch, interesting people, SF office, salary was descent, young, fun, relaxed atmosphere, many good people

    Cons

    Disorganized, no communication among teams, no common goal, each week the product is given a "new" look and price point, leadership is non existant, revenue is tanking, wasteful spending, egos, re-orgs/layoffs, very high turn over rate

    Advice to Management

    There is high turnover rate due to leadership issues and bad decisions made by them that show lack of knowledge about the industry and the users.
