    I have been working at Mitratech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I now see the purpose for the incredibly thorough interview process: this company truly promotes from within and focuses on hiring people who can grow with the company, in whom they can invest.

    I've worked at a lot of places that claim to have growth opportunities or a transparent culture, but this company actually walks the walk. They stand by their core values and maintain accountability. It's also an incredibly welcoming, fun environment and team of people.

    Leadership is trustworthy and open, and the talent at all levels within the company sets the bar high. They value their employees, and it shows.

    Very fun, challenging, and rewarding place to be.

    Cons

    Like most places, the internal systems and processes can always be better - excited to watch these continue to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the open communication, trust and transparency - it makes a huge difference. Continue to engage at all levels and keep the innovative and fun culture alive.

    I have been working at Mitratech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoy all the perks that Mitratech offers. We have snack day every week (plus the snacks that are available in the kitchen on a daily basis), company happy hours, occasional free lunches, fun trips (like indoor sky diving and Main event), etc. I also like that I can talk to my boss about anything and everyone treats me like a valued team member. Another thing I like is the ability to move around within the company and expand on many skills that I can take with me anywhere.

    Cons

    Some of the upper level managers and directors can be a bit demanding, but that goes with any job. As long as you communicate with them and give updates they aren't too bad to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more patient. Sometimes it is a bit much to ask for almost daily updates. Give us time to get things worked out before demanding information.

    I have been working at Mitratech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Opportunities to work on projects you wouldn't get at other companies
    -Career mobility within and across sister companies
    -Focus on continuously improving; few problems persistent over time and "that's just the way it is;" successful employees must also embrace evolving and your own professional development
    -Small company feel with the financial backing and support of a larger company

    Cons

    -Speed and focus on process isn't for everyone; if you do not appreciate quick pace and efficiency it will not be a strong cultural fit
    -Career proposition isn't understood by all; lots to take advantage of if you know the opportunity for what it's worth; believe this to be true for all levels of the organization

    Advice to Management

    -Keep doing what you're doing and maintain focus on people and their development; they're your greatest asset

    I have been working at Mitratech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No shortage of opportunity to learn, grow and be challenged for people who think creatively about their careers. For a company of its size, Mitratech takes training very seriously and puts a lot of time and effort into onboarding. While it's not all perfect, the company takes culture and communication very seriously. Very transparent in terms of sharing company performance, values, priorities, reasons for decisions, etc. Casual atmosphere and a lot of great people to work with. Minimal politics.

    Cons

    Change is a constant when "continuous improvement" is a core value. Not a fit for everyone. Still a relatively small company, so advancement may not be as obvious as rungs up a ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to be a great company. Challenge yourselves to be true to the values you measure everyone else by.

    I have been working at Mitratech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Mitratech in Austin for over 2 years. The first year after the acquisition was rocky and plagued by poor leadership (as come of the other reviews allude to). However, the leadership team in place over the past year has been solid and extremely transparent. The culture and the company as a whole keeps getting better. I love coming into work everyday and I feel like my opinion matters.

    Cons

    Like all companies, there are some people who don't like their jobs and do nothing to improve their situation. Additionally, if you don't adjust well to change and you don't like processes, Mitratech is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Continue the communication.

    Pros

    I've never worked for an organization that has cared more about both the advancement of the company as well as each individual employee. They really try to make your life as easy as they can (as long as you put effort into your job) with excellent benefits, opportunity for advancement and the willingness to be open with both other employees as well as management. The CEO genuinely cares about all employees and always has an open door.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of you during training and it can be a bit tedious but also really helps give you a strong foundation for what you will be doing in your position.

    Advice to Management

    The company events that are planned are great team-building exercises, even with people that aren't in your department. It might be beneficial to have one more of those each year and make it more available for remote employees to join as well.

    A Great Environment, If you are looking to move up and around and gain experience Mitratech is the place to start your career

    Cons

    Not to many here, If I had to say anything it would be the interview process. Way to many interviews for most positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow your employees to have an affect on the company, And with that said don't be afraid to let go of some process.

    Pros

    Company really invests in their people, great at promoting from within and helping career growth, it is a smaller company so a single employee has the opportunity to participate and work in various projects across the different teams, open leadership team that follows the 'open door' policy, great benefits and company culture

    Cons

    Pay for some positions might be lower than other big tech companies, but it's a smaller company and that definitely has perks that Facebook and Google can't offer, so it is all about preference

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and continually improve the culture - great job so far!
