      Pros

      Great work life balance. Good benefits. Some new interesting work. Remote work.

      Cons

      Career development only happens at their defined intervals even for high performers. Compensation is below average. Lots of legacy software. There is a lack of ownership for some products. High performance doesn't get recognized. Lack of transparency from upper management.

      Chaotic and disorganized

      Pros

      Good paid time off policy

      Cons

      Things became incredibly chaotic this year. The company laid off over a hundred people despite having met all their budget goals in 2020. Historically, communication and transparency from leadership has been very poor anyway, so I think trust and morale is at a new low. They're losing a lot of good talent because in addition to the layoffs, people are quitting left and right. It's become a domino effect that I think is far from over. Leadership has been changing direction and priorities so frequently that I wouldn't trust the stability of a job there until the dust settles and they can prove they've got their act together.

      MiTek doesn't care about employees

      Pros

      4% 401k matching that is 100% vested the first year. 2x salary for default life insurance. Just added 4 weeks of parental leave even for fathers. 3 weeks of vacation starting out. Overall good benefits. It depends on the manager, but it's normally flexible if you have to leave early one day. People don't normally have to work more than 40 hours a week, but that also depends on the manager.

      Cons

      Not well managed (too many cooks in the kitchen). People don't like to follow protocols and you get different instructions from different managers. They managed to not lay anyone off during the pandemic, but "restructured" recently to lay 130 people off after they had a record year for sales and the budget was met. Things are kept very secretive and managers will tell you outright not to discuss salary with anyone.

      Pros

      There is decent 401k and insurance.

      Cons

      Where to start? They just layed off 130 people, the people leading enterprise IT and security are inept and have no idea what they are doing. This place was a great place to work and has just really declined in the past year. The people whose heart are In the right place have no voice and their thoughts are dismissed.

      Pros

      Good benefits, decent pay. Many great and dedicated people. Best truss products in the market.

      Cons

      Past management understood their business and industry. New CEO (2017) comes from Healthcare and has surrounded himself with other people with little experience or understanding of the building industry. Continuous reorganizations with vague and dubious goals.
