    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.

    I worked at Mitchell International as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    great co-workers, cafeteria on site that serves good food for one shift. was a good facility until they quit cleaning and started smashing employees together with no personal space. can't think of any more,

    Cons

    Management, management. They play favorites. No growth potential unless you are a favorite to management which in some departments requires things that border harassment. No employee loyalty. They continually take away company perks, they outsource internationally any opportunity they have. Products need much improvement. Not keeping up with the standard progress. Way too much overtime required with no compensation

    Advice to Management

    get over yourself.

    I worked at Mitchell International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Loved the promotion of healthy lifestyles. There was a nice gym and company incentives for employees to work out (company sports tournaments, yoga classes, races) and emphasis on eating right (healthy food snacks around the company and newsletters with recipes)

    - Co-workers were great, made a lot of friendships during employment.

    - One of my co-workers gave me the Microsoft Excel bible, and I got really good at the program through projects.

    - Worked here as a college student (part-time and summer intern) and had good exposure to corporate environment. Liked that the company was big enough that I could help out with different departments outside of my own, and was not stuck doing the same thing everyday

    Cons

    - Lack of training and managerial support.

    - Managers/Upper level management made me feel worthless. Direct manager barely cared to train me and was always wrapped up in his own projects. I was often left with nothing to do, so I had to go around the company, offering my help to other managers and departments.

    - Upper level manager in my department was extremely egotistical and rude - not to mention sexist! As mentioned above, I received very little training from my direct manager, and was ridiculed/scolded by upper manager for doing things incorrectly. The upper manager in my department always spoke in condescending tones, and talked to me as if I didn't understand anything.

    - My position at Mitchell International was not taken seriously. A lot of my assigned projects died off because they were frivolous in nature, and managers would often forget what I was working on, unless I bothered to update them once in a while.

    - Was paid very little in comparison to other interns in other departments.

    - Seemed to be consensus between co-workers about dislike for upper management (at least in the department that I worked in)

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to hire ANYONE, even an intern, treat them with a little bit more respect. I felt like I was an outsider for 6 months, and was almost a burden to my managers. Going into the internship, I expected to learn a lot, and create some meaningful work - not be left in the corner to find my own projects to work on. In addition, upper managers need to get off their high horses and listen to their employees.
