    Pros

    There are many positives working with Mitchell. They have a proven track record to grow employees that work hard. I have been with the company in various positions in the past 11 years. I've grown with this organization, and I know many others that have as well. This does not mean there are no new opportunities, they hire many people from outside as well.

    My management was extremely supportive when I went back to complete my education, and Mitchell actually helped pay for some of it. This is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The cafeteria food is too overpriced for the quality...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Mitchell International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was my third internship in college, and at the end of it I can wholeheartedly say this program was the best I've experienced. We were exposed to all layers of the business (meetings with executives, product demos, and the overall culture). I was given meaningful work in my respective field, and the projects I worked on are going to have an impact on the company as well as my development. A few other highlights: office is closer than Sorrento Valley, awesome cafeteria, and a memorable company culture. Also, they got us a ticket to a Padre's game that included free beer so I was happy.

    Cons

    This isn't a serious knock because this intern program was stellar, but I think Mitchell could be a better-managed company in regards to how they use, and then track the use of, their resources. The big data possibilities are out there, just gotta utilize them.

    Advice to Management

    Great job, thank you for clearly caring about the intern program. It showed. The one thing I'd say you could do to take it to the next step would be to have a clearly articulated onboarding process and several projects prepared for the intern to work on when they start.

    Pros

    Mitchell stays up to date on their web-stack, going as far as development builds for libraries when needed. Everyone strives to make the best possible code. You frequently hear people asking why things are they way they are and finding problems is praised. The work-life balance is fantastic, because there are no looming deadlines employees can get quality work done instead of rushing out buggy code.

    Cons

    When starting it took me nearly a week to get a computer and get it set up with all the permissions.

    Uses TFS instead of git. Not really a con, just am not used to TFS.

    The build process is up, but could use some maturing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing because it works well.

    Pros

    They value you and you health and wellness! It's still a small enough company working hard gets you noticed and promoted.

    Cons

    Currently I do not have any cons. So because they are forcing me to write something under con the only thing I can say as a con is I'm upset there is only 1 gym.

    I worked at Mitchell International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great perks typical of a software firm, including casual dress, sand volleyball and ping-pong. Mitchell has a quality management group and are willing to invest in employee development.

    Cons

    There are limited growth opportunities as the firm is regional. While they're growing internationally, the local market in San Diego isn't experiencing significant growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring smart motivate young engineers and business majors from the great pool of talent in San Diego and try and avoid strings of layoffs prior to company sales as this worries your young talent.
