    I worked at Mirror Image Internet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with great people who carry an optimistic attitude of mind that is based on a daily expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large.

    Cons

    Company lacks a strong entrepreneurial leader that can rally people around a common vision for innovation and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Find a strong entrepreneurial leader that can rally people around a common vision for innovation and growth.

    I worked at Mirror Image Internet (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well intentioned managers are lacking support from above.

    Cons

    There couldn't be a more dysfunctional ownership and CEO. I don't understand how it has stayed in business this long. There needs to be a clear strategy and then commit to it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on results regardless of a clear plan and consistent direction from the top. There are a few very smart managers that know what need to be done, in spite of conflicting feedback and direction.

    Pros

    Some talented people work there.
    - Some of the products show promise but overall poor execution.
    - Very flexible
    - Very supportive VP of Sales and sales team.

    Cons

    - Incredibly unsupportive management.
    - Nothing more than a tax shelter.
    - A shell of its former self.
    - Very much behind the technology curve.

    Advice to Management

    When push comes to shove, you have to look inside. Entirely mismanaged. I wished more than anything things would change but they didn't.

    Pros

    * A couple of decent people work here- most all gone now I hear with 1 or 2 left.

    Cons

    * no pay raises
    * they do the same thing there over and over - no real marketing or go to market plan.
    * a finance guy who thinks he's the CEO
    * another person who 'works' for the company - but won't acknowledge it on LinkedIn.
    * core group who make decisions, never listen - and always blame and fire someone low on the food chain when "the board" gets angry.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck riding the gravy train while you can - most managers there wouldn't last a day anywhere else.

    I worked at Mirror Image Internet full-time

    Pros

    The core group of employees are awesome to work with.

    Cons

    No reviews or pay raises in years. You never knew how well or how bad the company's doing. I can't remember the last time we had a company meeting. Privately held company with cheap owners and therefore no company stock or bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some cash to compete in this market or get out and stop wasting people's time.

    I have been working at Mirror Image Internet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a few good people here that if they were elsewhere could excel.

    Cons

    The root of most of the issues is senior management and the complete inability to have any kind of plan or understanding of how to run a technical organization. I believe the biggest issue is the COO which does not belong in that position and has no business running the company.

    Unfortunately when you have problems at that level , there is no chance of success since the problem never goes away. I don't understand why the owners have not gotten rid of the COO and several others by now.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the dead weight and you could have potential success. The only way any success is possible is to bring in new upper management and start from the top. Otherwise, this company will eventually will cost to much to continue down this path.

    Pros

    Great people overall. Senior management has made very positive changes with limited resources.

    Cons

    ...but, vacant and unsupportive owners do not support the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the changes and hope for new ownership some day!

    Pros

    Creative staff, staff needed to find ways to work with older hardware and out of date software.

    Cons

    Lack of funds prevented us from keeping software up to date. Sr Management felt support contracts were scams and would not provide funds for software maintenance.

    Pros

    Some decent people to work with
    flexible schedule
    pay is ok

    Cons

    Crazy work hours 60+ hours easy ( especially in netops)
    management is young and lacks experience
    quality is not a requirement here and it is more quantity focus
    many people are very burnt out and the attitudes can be very negative and even hostile at times

    If you are looking for a long term job, this is not the place. If you choose to work here try to plan on only staying about a year or you will be completely fried... Lots of churn and burn . You will see many people come/go inside a year.

    Advice to Management

    invest in getting more experienced technical people and stop the insane work schedules. There has to be some balance in what is sold to customers and what is reality.
