I worked at Mirror Image Internet full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good senior sales management and work/life balance.

Cons

They bizarrely have a sales rep (great resume!) in the CRO role and their technology is dated.

Advice to Management

Great Sales VP & Marketing guy, the rest are either pointless or unreachable.

    Pros

    In No Particular Order:
    1) Access to real world technology
    2) Very intelligent and helpful and friendly colleagues.
    3) Cutting edge technology where budget allows
    4) Amongst colleagues open technical discussions and open discussions for improvements.

    Cons

    This List Is In No Particular Order:
    1) High employee Turnover, willing and unwilling.
    2) Lack of process, procedures, documentation.
    3) Sink or Swim mentality and no available training or docs for training
    4) Unknown/Vague Expectations with no guidelines to measure personal performance
    5) Internal Political Tension
    6) Due to # 1-thru-5 above causes constant stress over job security.

    Pass on employment here if you can! I am one of many who have been extended this critical and very true advice! Ethics goes right out the window here, whether you are planning a long term commitment or a shorter one, you will be treated as if you have one foot out the door. Probably for a good reason, they have left that foot out there for you! If you must take the job and I hope you do not, you should absolutely continue your job search as they have no loyalty to you and seem to be OK with this modus operandi. If you are a rock-star you threaten someone working there; if you are not, then you are an unnecessary burden (on the budget or someones' time). In what I have witnessed there seems to be a no win situation except whatever serves their need at the time.

    There is no feeling of job security, this is NOT a grudge but the simple truth.

    Advice to Management

    1) Implement a structured training program for employees, for new and veteran employees.
    2) Create documentation that is up-to-date and thus relevant.
    3) Create a system for employee recognition and accomplishments.
    4) Start a company wide meeting where #3 above can be presented and company road map discussed.
    5) Implement an employee suggestion box that can be anonymous, if so desired, for improving the workplace atmosphere.
    6) Add criteria and expectations as a guide for personal performance.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mirror Image Internet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Creative staff, staff needed to find ways to work with older hardware and out of date software.

    Cons

    Lack of funds prevented us from keeping software up to date. Sr Management felt support contracts were scams and would not provide funds for software maintenance.
