    I have been working at Mitchell International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of really smart & talented people! There is a ton to learn, and everyone is really supportive. Atmosphere is fairly laid back. You are given a lot of autonomy. Cooperation is valued more than competition.

    Cons

    Too many cooks in the kitchen at times & overlapping responsibilities, sometimes loses focus on the end user because of it & it can be difficult to pinpoint who is ultimately responsible for certain processes & tasks to be completed. Also career paths are not clearly defined. No set performance objectives. Benefits are standard / slightly below industry average.

    Advice to Management

    Break the silos between the the different departments. Set clear definable roles & clear performance objectives.

    Pros

    Newer office. But extremely tight.

    Cons

    This is not a technology company. This is a company that has poor benefits, a company that has a lot of turnover. The company just recently did a training for all employees where they asked everyone to step up because they want to reach 1 Billion in sales and went on for 2 days emphasizing what we as employees need to do but when employees asked what they would receive for the extra effort, they said that we would receive some recognition card saying good job and that’s about it. Management in some departments are rude, and raises are minimal to non-existent. I would stay away.

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know where to start

    Pros

    Basically nothing. Hard to think of any.

    Cons

    Micromanagement.
    No Appreciation.
    Bad Senior Management.
    Focus on only few teams, rest are ignored.
    Promotions based on seniority rather than performance.
    Low Salary.
    Bad benefits.
    A lot of inexperienced engineers acting like they know everything.
    No one listens to your point of view but will come back 10 months later to do the same thing you suggested before.
    Small Limited budgets for each project so you will often be asked to put some overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people at Senior management such is SVP and VP level who have good leader ship qualities.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. There are many smart people to learn from. Most teams are keeping up with the latest technologies and are always improving. Office building is very nice and company events are fun. Pretty standard benefits for a corporate company (Health, 401k, etc). Good starting place for someone trying to get into tech.

    Cons

    Many projects are halfway or poorly implemented by outsourced contractors which generates rework and roadblocks for other employees. Accountability, ownership, and honesty is very low from these contractors. Their idea of D.O.D is not in the best interest for the company as a whole. Cheaper work means lower quality. This seems to be a recurring issue but managers never learn their lesson and continue to outsource work (then act surprised when the results do not meet the requirements).
    Pay is lower than other companies in the area.
    There are not enough parking spots on premise for everyone in the building .

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your whole team's advice and not just the Senior people. Reward good employees with new opportunities instead of having them do the same repetitive work they've been doing since day 1. Challenge your employees but don't give them unrealistic tasks. Do not outsource projects that are going to be used by your team everyday just because it is cheaper. Reduce the amount of meetings.

    Pros

    There are some really good people at Mitchell who try and be supportive.

    Cons

    The culture is broken and has been for quite some time. This place is odd though because there are certain departments that seem to be doing well and have decent employee satisfaction. There are other departments where the culture is as others have posted "toxic".

    Advice to Management

    New CEO with a fresh approach to employee satisfaction. Do 360 evaluations so you can see who the terrible managers/execs are and fire them. Or you can continue to have high turnover and many of your employees miserable as they work each day. The Mitchell Way huh?
