    Pros

    The work itself is interesting and the management is very experienced and easy to work with. The compensation is good for entry-level graduates.

    The size of the company gives fewer opportunities for the employees to grow professionally.

    I worked at Mintz Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Occasionally interesting, high-profile cases; great place to further develop research skills; interesting management

    Cons

    Expectations are rarely communicated and always passive aggressively; high turnover; compensation not in line with work expectations; awkward culture that is part corporate-part wannabe startup

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees; burning them out and hiring new people constantly is not a good way to build an organization in the long-term

    Pros

    Interesting work, colleagues with diverse professional backgrounds

    Cons

    low pay, little room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    invest in developing your employees and upping the retention rate. The amount that is spent on training new hires because entry level people leave after a few years is far too high - it would be more worth your time to compensate and train the employees you already have such that they feel it is actually advantageous to their career to stick around (in many cases this isn't currently true.)

    I worked at Mintz Group as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    A truly elite investigative services firm, the Mintz Group offered a top notch pedigree of coworker (most coworkers either held degrees from an Ivy League or comparable school). Industry knowledge was of the highest level and if not for other life opportunities (Left to continue my education) I definitely would have stayed at the firm indefinitely. Great work environment, friendly staff. Excellent upper-level management that has overseen the growth of the company into a central player in the investigative and corporate intelligence space.

    Cons

    While not specific to the Mintz Group, the investigative/consulting industry is both time and energy intensive. A passion for investigations and an underlying curious streak are definitely necessary if considering working at a firm like the James Mintz Group.

    Pros

    They often hire contractors to help with their work and they compensate well and treat everyone well also. They firm works on very high end and exciting work. If I could have stayed, I wuld have strongly considered it.

    Cons

    It is extremely difficult to know what others are doing based on the nature of the business - employees rarely discuss the inner workings of things, and for good reason, its extremely confidential, but atthe same time for professional growth it would be helpful to know things

    Advice to Management

    I have none, as they were very respectful, and compensated well and established good goals for their contractors working on special projects.
