      Highly Political and Poor Workforce Management

      May 6, 2021 - Senior Manager in San Diego, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits with company contributions.

      Cons

      Unfair salaries without proper job leveling; ie: an employee with less experience can make more than you in the exact same role, with less work, if you came via an acquisition and they came as a new hire. Highly political with little room for growth. Their product management seems to have a lot of say in who stays and who goes and you could lose your role for simple reasons as the PM thinking that you're not an effective employee; very biased with little defense from other leaders. You have to lookout for yourself. Poor workforce management, turnover, and employee cultivation, that leads to burnout and employees being paid too little to do too much, Constantly taking over for employees leaving with little incentive or increase in salary; more responsibility with less pay. The expectation to just do it because "you have to," and there is no reward at the end and little accolades. Little recognition for employees that contribute consistently. They have awards for MVP, pats on the back, thank you's, etc., but there is little incentive to people that work hard every day, don't complain, do as they're asked, and are just good employees. Leaders are so overworked, that they don't have time to offer much praise to employees. Lots of HR rules for employee management; do this, not this, and this, but not that, and never do this, but you can't do that! Its highly exhausting to work with the HR team, because everything needs approval and review. Employees that violate regulations and consistently have issues find themselves in protective bubbles even if they make their peer and managers miserable. Overall morale is low because people are underpaid, overworked, with little recognition or support with the expectation that it's just what needs to be done and there is no other choice. Even executives offer little consolation to their employees because they feel it too. It's exhausting. Growth is like cheerleader tryouts; if they like or favor you then you'll likely get the role. It's rarely based on accomplishments, experience, or abilities. It's like high school 2.0.

      Pros

      I've worked long term for 3 companies and Mitchell has to be the best. Flexible & the opposite of micromanagement. They trust you to get your work completed. I appreciate that and have enjoyed working for them.

      Cons

      No bonuses for nurses. I think we deserve it!

      Pockets of Good and Bad Leadership

      Jul 21, 2020 - Project Manager in San Diego, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Generally nice/friendly peers to work with - Work/life balance - Decent employee benefits (gym, wellness reimbursement, on-site cafeteria) - Kind/intelligent direct manager

      Cons

      While many people were nice, lots were incompetent. Many who were there for years had become complacent in doing the LEAST which made it difficult to execute projects. Some policies were more rooted in red tape to "control" behavior versus promote a positive culture. The organization is heavily white, male, and older--not necessarily bad attributes unless those folks are able to stick around despite bad work ethic, bad behavior, and bad attitudes. It often seemed more important that people "like" you (I-want-to-have-a-beer-with-this-person-test) than you could get the job done. It can be intensely political. I believe there are feedback mechanisms in place, but no one uses them. I would often see employees struggle to advance their careers while managers talked poorly of them behind their backs (but they were never given critical feedback to their face).
