    I have been working at Mandli Communications full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They treat everyone like family and do briefings on what’s going on in the company, to keep you informed. You never feel like a number here and the owner has a open door to anyone that would like to talk to him. He is willing to help anyone find a way to reach there goals. There always room to advance if you a motivated person with good work ethic.

    Cons

    You need to be flexible, this company is changing a lot because they stay out in front of the leading edge of technology.

    I worked at Mandli Communications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Modern, more so "young" office -Good job immediately post-grad -Very friendly staff who were willing to help out. -Free bagels every other Tuesday + occasional BBQ in summer. -Awesome direct superiors/leads in the processing team. They made it nice coming to work. -Really good benefits such as health.

    Cons

    -Low wages for just starting out. They were originally at $13/hr but then raised to $15/hr after outside pressure from competitors. -Super independent work. If you like talking to people, too bad. You sit at your desk and aren't allowed to get up or chat with your neighbor. -No real skills gained. -Very banal work. You input data all day and it never changes. -Hard to move up in company. You may be "promoted" to quality control, but you're doing the same work the whole day. One coworker was in the same basic position for seven years. -Most of the coworkers in this position seemed to have very little "motivation" or "self drive", especially considering most of them have been in the same role for years. -Your on hourly, so you have to get there at 7 am sharp and leave no earlier/later than 3:30 pm.

    Pros

    Innovative company that is moving in a positive direction. Mandli Communications in conjunction with their team of enthusiastic employees, is making a difference in data collection on so many levels.

    Cons

    It would be nice if the benefit package started on day one of employment, but the overall, Health and Dental Insurance packages are top notch. 100% company paid.

    Pros

    They do provide health insurance

    Cons

    Completely worthless HR department, lack of professional engineers, no knowledge of industry standards. Honestly I worked here for almost a year and walked out one day because I felt like I had made a huge mistake working there. I have 10 years experience in Engineering, I needed a job after a contract ended overseas. I took this job because I needed something. Within about 1 week, I realized that I had been decieved into thinking this company would accomplish anything. If you're a veteran, avoid this company. During my time here I interacted with people who are in charge, who know very little and have almost no professional engineering background. It was seriously disturbing to me. The work is not challenging. I made a serious effort to approach the owners to get them work. I had a contact with the General Electric Geospatial Department vice president. I knew him from my time working for the government. I called him and asked about work. I then approached senior management about the project. The project was overseas and was just up the alley of the work Roadview does except it would deal with pipeline work. I wrote a proposal and gave it to a management member that I thought would hear me out. The work itself was around 11 million in revenue. Which at the time, seemed like it could have desperately used. This management person laughed at me. I then gave him my aquaintance business card, explained I used to work for the federal government, etc. Would you like this work? I can get you the project information. The management leader said "we don't really do that, we do stuff with roads." A month later I interviewed for a project manager position. I felt that I would get the job. I have an enormous amount of experience with the government. They gave the job to a recent college graduate. It seriously upset me. Although I was confident I was still the top candidate, I was seriously frustrated. The following day, while sitting at my desk. I went outside to smoke, thought about my situation. 10 minutes later, I walked off the job. It was the best decision I have ever made. The company is a joke. They are not concerned with making money. A week later I got a new job as a senior designer at a real engineering company. After leaving I consulted an attorney because I very seriously felt lied too about the position I held. Weeks later, I let it go. But my greatest advice is absolutely do not work at this company. It has all the looks of a engineering company, but it's absolutely not in your benefit to work for this company.

    I worked at Mandli Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Got to work with some really great, bright, and talented people. Average effort and work ethic with some attention to detail will put you well above most of your peers (although how much that matters to management is questionable). Those who are self-motivated and new to being in positions of team leadership can safely develop, experiment, and hone their leadership styles in a very low risk environment.

    Cons

    Weak and poor leadership. Deceitful management. Lack of professional development. Low pay. Minimal useful training and experience outside of propriety software - this is not what would be recognized in the industry as a GIS job. Rampant nepotism and favoritism. HR.
