    Pros

    A lot of great and talented people to work with. Large company with plenty of room to grow. Beautiful easily accessible building. Good company culture, allowing flexible hours, health incentives,...

    Cons

    Upper management is completely disconnected from what happens under them. Business decisions seem to be made without the employers (and sometimes even without the clients) in mind. Lower than average wages.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Overall, it's a good company to work for. There isn't a lot of turnover. The culture is diverse and there are a lot of talented people working here.

    Cons

    New products are slow to hit the market. Pay is below average for a software company. Politics, with people being promoted who clearly should not be.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to get to know your employees. Make them feel like they are part of something instead of just lip service of about how great we are.

    Pros

    Great company for those entering the professional workforce
    True ownership of products/projects - you get what you put in
    Executive leaders are engaged, relatively transparent and approachable
    Solid talent, friendly peers

    Cons

    Professional growth has a tendency to plateau early
    Despite heavy rhetoric to improving quality and fostering innovation, the results aren't being realized
    Politically charged atmosphere
    Compensation appears less competitive when compared to similar positions in the area

    Advice to Management

    Mitchell is a company that plays to win, and that's a good thing. Part of a winning strategy is empathizing with customers and meeting their needs, but ensure that doing so doesn't lead to shortcuts or compromises that make it harder to compete down the road

    It's undeniable that the company is investing a significant amount of time, money and resources to improve the quality of the services and products. Continue to challenge your leaders by setting clearly defined OKRs and benchmarks to demonstrate incremental improvements

    Pros

    You are given a lot of responsibility out of the gate and can really shine if you run with projects on your own. There is also a lot of change right now and change breeds opportunity.

    Cons

    There is so much uncertainty in the company right now that there seems to be more focus from management watching everything thing you do. Feels very micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direct. trust your people. Get better at rewarding with carrots and not sticks.
