    I have been working at Mirror Image Internet full-time (More than 5 years)

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    Creative staff, staff needed to find ways to work with older hardware and out of date software.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

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Interesting to learn about edge caching technology, albeit it was out of date. Lots of hands on experience and the ability to learn.

    Cons

    Pay cuts, attitude of owners towards employees. Lack of respect and out of touch with the industry. Direction of the company was misled in internal politics.

    Advice to Management

    Are you are service company or a software company, stop re-inventing the wheel.

    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

    Good senior sales management and work/life balance.

    Cons

    They bizarrely have a sales rep (great resume!) in the CRO role and their technology is dated.

    Advice to Management

    Great Sales VP & Marketing guy, the rest are either pointless or unreachable.
