    Pros

    Great managers, great atmosphere, great work/life balance, great place to work!

    I worked at MindLeaders full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people were great, the culture was great, the work was fun (for the most part). Only if it had lasted longer...

    Cons

    The company was smaller than its competitors and that made it tough to compete. People complained about the 'commodity' nature of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell the company, I guess. It seemed like everyone liked working there. To bad it ended. It was fun while it lasted.

    Pros

    Un-corporatey culture, great holiday parties (the annual Halloween costume contest was the highlight of the year), casual work environment.

    Cons

    They paid well below market rates for many or most employees. There was little investment/buy-in from upper management to keep our product technologically up-to-date. As a result, we were always struggling to be just up to date enough not to tick off our customer base.

    Example: Until around late 2009, our main web application was only compatible with Internet Explorer.

    Advice to Management

    Get ahead of the curve! Join technological progress! Innovate! And pay your employees better.

    I worked at MindLeaders full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is dedicated and involved in their jobs and the overall culture of the company. Company and team retreats on a frequent basis. Entertaining parties and competitions for special occasions/holidays. Good benefits. Great people to work for/with. Challenging and stimulating environment. Flexible hours. Work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    The pay is low relative to similar companies in the area, but the atmosphere and benefits compensate for the low pay. The company was acquired and disbanded in 2012.

    Pros

    The people were the best part of the company. Hard working and willing to help one another. Some amazing work was completed. Customers were treated well and the staff went out of their way to assist them in any way they could.

    Cons

    The company had continued to fall behind and more was continually done with less. As the team size shrunk, the amount of work continued at the previous pace.

    Advice to Management

    MindLeaders is gone, but remember the lessons learned.

  8. "Although they have been acquired by another company, MindLeaders was a superb place to work."

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

    Pros

    Team environment of employees and work and play hard. Very relaxed culture, in terms of dress code and room for creativity. Talented and drive people. Most members of upper management seem to genuinely care about employees.

    Cons

    Emphasis on getting projects done quickly, but not always effectively. Tendency to chase new products and features, without giving proper attention to existing products and features. Enjoyed working for the company, until I was put under management of an individual with no management experience and poor relational leadership skills.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't hire anymore manager that don't have experience and, if you do, make sure they have someone to properly coach them. Focus on improving or fixing existing products, in addition to pursuing or developing new products.
