    I worked at MiTek Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work-life balance is good. Pay is better than other reviews suggest. A safe, stable job if you play your cards right.

    Cons

    Really depends on department - certain departments are incredibly dysfunctional and others are fine. If you don't "fit in" you face an uphill battle. There is a lot of politics and more fear than you'd expect beneath the sunny facade.

    Advice to Management

    Seniority does not always mean they're the best person for the job.

    Pros

    It's a nice place to work though the work can be mundane.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than typical. People who have left seem to be making crazy money compared to what they made when they were here. Management can be very condescending. Employees know that confidential online surveys are not really confidential so employees respond positively.

    Advice to Management

    I gave 3 stars because that's a meets in the salary review world. 4 stars would mean that MiTek demonstrates an exceptional level of performance and consistently exceeds overall goals and expectations and MiTek is not at that level

    I have been working at MiTek Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MiTek cares about "human beings," not "human doings." This is the first place I've worked that actually values people, trusts them to do their job and allows them to explore their ability, passion and creativity.

    It's probably not reasonable for 100% of the people to think this is a great place, but as part of a project we did, we interviewed 20 new hires and 20 people who were here for 20+ years. Nearly every single person said they wanted this to be their first and last job.

    Cons

    If a manager isn't bought into the People First culture, then it can be hard for that team to realize all the great benefits of MiTek, but that's a rare scenario and our leadership team doesn't shy away from confronting tough issues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to eat, live and breath this culture of People First and performance. Continue to treat everyone with dignity, praise and trust and we'll continue to be leaders in our industry. What a great place to work!!!

    I have been working at MiTek Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, easy work

    Cons

    Working here it instills the mindset in people to not think for themselves, and to just go through the motions until quitting time. New ideas are encouraged but it’s highly unlikely they will even be considered, regardless of how obvious of an improvement it is. Very behind on technology for in the shop. Poor quality control. A lot of gossip, secrets, very poor communication from management.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t just pretend to be a people first company, actually back it up. Being people first isn’t about a certificate you received or a course you had to go through to be certified as people first. Respect the lowest guy in the company the same as you would upper management. Don’t waste people’s time, be true to your word, and be open minded, always striving to improve.

    I worked at MiTek Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. HR and mgmt went the distance for me when a family member became ill and I eventually had to leave entirely. I had been there over 10 yrs,

    The People First program is a major success. I saw many changing aspects of this .Mgmt embraced it fully. The industry itself needed an overhaul on how folks were treated and much to all the employees delight,we all got to see it happen.
    Best company I ever worked for.

    Cons

    I was fortunate to work for a great mgr in SQA. I can honestly say that my experience over all didn't garner any negative aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep People First strong and on the minds of everyone.

    Pros

    Leadership definitely wants to improve
    Relaxed culture, 9-5. not a lot of weeks past 40hrs

    IT is seen as another department to manage fiscally
    Projects always fail to deliver
    Hesitation to switch from legacy solutions, inept senior IT leadership
