I have been working at Mitchell International full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good place to learn about corporate culture and understand basics of software and its uses in the insurance industry.

Cons

Interdepartmental in fighting cause a bottle neck in product development and deployments. Management (Director and above) is achieved not by skill & hard work but by who you know. Every 18-24 months they implement a round of lay-offs.

Advice to Management

You are top heavy at the Director/VP level.

    Pros

    I got to commiserate with some great people about all the crap we had to endure at this place.

    Cons

    Have you had a boss that demanded perfection while they were far less than perfect themselves? You will find it at Mitchell. Have you ever had a boss berate you for sending emails after business hours, even though you are striving to complete a project? You will find it at Mitchell. Have you ever had a boss tell you how horrible you are, yet block you over and over again from moving to another position? Yep, Mitchell has these fine folks.

    Mitchell is "great" at bleeding people dry, insisting you work 80+ hours/week while only paying you 40 hours/week. Management has no problem texting/calling/emailing you on the weekends to demand work be done, while not offering any comp time in return. While it may be necessary sometimes to work 60+ hours/week to drive a project to completion in the late stages, it is asinine for management to require their employees to work these hours on a consistent basis for constant churn, simply to maintain status quo.

    MitcHELL is purely a good old boy network, highly steeped in favoritism. It is a politically charged environment where management is out for themselves and does not protect their employees. The company insists on cheap infrastructure, which of course resulted in two major outages over the past year. Instead of rebuilding this infrastructure, they go cheaper, make up scapegoats and have layoffs. Brilliant!

    Advice to Management

    Get a soul and treat your employees like human beings instead of garbage.

    I have been working at Mitchell International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary, really nice people, opportunity for advancement, friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    IT dept is an old boys club, they're cheap on infrastructure and tools, they are behind the curve on technology, and poor benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new talent, and significantly increase incentives and benefits to keep talent there.
