    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Best place I have ever worked at, and so far I've been darn lucky with all my jobs. Such an exciting company! The opportunity to grow professionally, the support from coworkers and the executive team, and just all around working with such dedicated and smart and genuinely good people (you won't find d-bags at this company!) is beyond inspiring.

    Cons

    You'll get so infected with the MindTouch spirit, you'll have a hard time thinking of anything else. (Not necessarily a con for those who like to throw themselves into work.)

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see more communication about big picture ideas and visions for the company going forward. Otherwise, keep up the transparency and collaboration across and between departments.

    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    MindTouch has been a fantastic company to work for. They encourage growth and promote from within often. The global encouragement (in-company, cross-departmental) is a breath of fresh air. The culture is electrifying and enhances creativity to the max. Catered lunches are a big plus as it's nice to not have to worry about what you're eating 3 times a week.

    Cons

    The parking price stinks, you pretty much have to decide whether or not you want to fork over $150/mo to park in or near the office. If you decide not to you're doing a good 1+ mile walk from an area with free parking, or using public transit, you'd kind of expect that working in Downtown San Diego. The do not have a set guideline regarding matching any 401k contributions, they just reserve the right to match whatever...

    Advice to Management

    Addressing the cons above would definitely be an improvement. Other than that keep doing what you're doing, recognizing hard work and hiring weird and awesome people who are passionate about their work!

    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cons

    * Process churn - how to communicate progress changes often as the company grows * Personality dominance - you have to speak confidently, loudly, and repeatedly about what you want to get other people on board * Office layout - open floor layout with not quite enough meeting rooms makes it easy to get pulled into side conversations that can't happen away from the main work area. * Resource constraints - company...

    The people and product consistently surprise me in a good way - keep up the feedback loops and structure that make building things right the easiest thing to do.

    Pros

    Great company culture with a positive attitude, a passion for learning and a focus on personal career growth. The work is great and my department in particular is a great group of people to collaborate with.

    Cons

    The process can be very loose and can cause frustration when a project is misdefined or communication breaks down, but this has improved and hopefully will continue to improve over time.

    Advice to Management

    While growing, keep the culture and focus on personal growth and learning. Keep all focus on hiring the right people for the company.

    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc.

    Pros

    MindTouch is a great place to learn, be challenged, and grow in the software engineering field. From day one I have been exposed to new technologies and challenges that have been extremely rewarding as I love to learn. The team at MindTouch has a healthy mix of people (cultural background and age). All of my co-workers are very talented individuals who are constantly willing to share knowledge, collaborate, and even...

    Cons

    Not everything is rosy, currently the company is growing a lot and space is tight until we find a bigger office space in the next few months. The onboarding process is a work in progress and the first few weeks can feel a little daunting as you discover all the different presses. The rooms could have better names that are easier to remember.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on fostering collaboration and communication between all different teams to work as cohesive units. This needs to be a priority as the company continues to grow.

    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    MindTouch has some of the most talented and passionate people. I enjoy coming to work everyday primarily to learn from my coworkers and build something great together. In the last few years there has been large focus on personal development, and team work. This has helped streamline the workplace into a very productive and innovative environment. MindTouch also is great about growing talent from within rather than hiring....

    Cons

    Not a lot of benefits, though there is the prospect of that changing. Salaries can be on the low side, but highly depends on case-by-case basis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing from within, the people here are passionate and smart. Let's get a clear, forward-looking roadmap going.

    I have been working at MindTouch, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons why MindTouch is a great place to work are: 0) Amazing development team. Everyone pushes itself to do its best work, work to be proud of. The engineers care about their craft and are always looking for better ways to do something. 1) As a customer success company, our Support and Customer Success departments are best of breed. 2) The sales team is amazing, and are bringing more and more...

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect, and some of the things that could be improved are: 0) We need more working/private areas to be able to have discussions. 1) The office layout is not conducive to collaboration, and it is hard to get to some offices or conference rooms. 2) We need a kitchen cleaning crew to be hired :-) 3) There isn't a matching 401k plan, and the family health insurance plans are expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the strong and cohesive teams equally effective and productive as we grow.
