    Pros

    The company over all is diverse

    If you don't want to be ambitious with your career the work life balance is great.

    Strong female leadership, great place to start a family at.

    Cons

    No room for growth especially in the marketing department.

    My creative portfolio stagnated, often I would have to do my own personal projects to learn new skills. Two years in I did not feel challenged.

    Management takes the side of the customer, some projects go through 15 to 30 revisions.
    The role of management to me was to facilitate, educate and manage the clients expectations. It seemed like politically management never wanted to go to bat for us.

    High turn over rate, constantly had to train new people.

    Management started to outsource a lot of the work, the client revisions became too much for the team to handle. To a freelancer this was a dream, Mitchell spent a lot of it's budget doing this.

    The most demoralizing thing personally was when we created content for the big conference the CEO would recognize the events team and not mention the Creative team.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, instead of just waiting for them to quit.

    Pros

    Trying to win the industry. Care about customer needs only not employees. Less salaries and no hikes. There is nothing much to say good about this company.

    Cons

    This company does not encourage Work from home policy. Delivery management doesn't support the growth of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Employees leave managers not companies.
    Try to take care of employees then profits will follow.

    I worked at Mitchell International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team mentality, at least on my team, was excellent. The engineers are the hardest working I've ever worked with. Dev leads are also excellent.

    Cons

    1. Pay is laughably low, especially for Southern California. Benefits are also poor.
    2. Middle management needs to wake up! Connect with your team. Pay attention to what they need instead of making poor decisions and hoping the team can pick up the pieces.
    3. Cut middle management in half and hire more product managers and UX designers!! The number of APD repair PMs compared to the work load and what needs to be done to enhance the products is pitiful.
    4. There's not a single scenario I can think of where cutting dev resources yet increasing product expectations makes sense. Mitchell is famous for this. They don't put the necessary resources into products, except for new ones, and then wonder why they fail time and time again.
    5. PM/PO structure is completely inconsistent, so some PMs serve as the PO as well which doubles workload especially when they have more than one product.

    Advice to Management

    Cut management and hire more people who actually work.
