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

    Pros

    The company has made some exciting acquisitions in the past few years and is currently tying it all together. The sales team has been reorganized and set up to aggressively hunt for new business. There are a lot of new faces on the sales team (including myself), along with some very tenured people who are always willing to help when you have questions. It's not uncommon to see senior management walking through the office and conversing with any employee, regardless of role. They're very approachable and care deeply about the organization. There's a ton of opportunity to come in here, be creative, and grow professionally.

    Cons

    None.

    The organization is going through a transition, like almost every other technology company out there. In order to stay relevant, companies need to be flexible which means employees need to be flexible. An "adapt and overcome" mindset is a must at any organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Continue to communicate. Continue to train on products and leadership skills.

    Pros

    The environment and Monotype is extremely nurturing and every one is eager to help each other succeed. Great office, good culture and great perks/amenities.

    Office space is quiet, but that isn't always a bad thing.

    I worked at Monotype full-time

    Pros

    Good environment everyone is very friendly. The company is well led and their new office is very nice, I would refer a friend to work here.

    Cons

    If you are a younger person there are not very many younger people at the company. They are trying to become a more modern company, but that is still a work in progress.

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

    Pros

    Many Monotype employees have had a long tenure at the company, which alone says a lot about the company. With that being the case, any way you turn, there is someone there to answer any questions you may have being a new employee. The transition into the company is made a whole lot smoother as a result of this.

    Cons

    None that I can speak of yet, the atmosphere is so friendly and laid back. There is a great balance of work and friendly dialogue.

    Advice to Management

    The training process is still a work in progress, but the company has put the right people in place to make this process the best that it can be.

    Pros

    The company is going through an exciting period of growth and transition. Management has expressed a clear growth strategy and appears to be taking action against it. It’s hard to go through change, but the company’s future opportunity is compelling and I’m happy to be a part of its exciting journey! The benefits are great and even as the company has grown, the benefits have stayed the same with a few more perks added each year. We recently got AnyPerks, which offers a bunch of discounts and promotions on everything from movies to gym memberships and wellness programs – it’s been an awesome new benefit. I have been able to take classes at university with the tuition reimbursement too. My salary seems on-par with other job opportunities I get contacted about in my market. Overall, I’ve had a great experience here at Monotype.

    Cons

    With transition comes change – which is exciting to me – but is not always well received by certain folks. There are a lot of new people joining as the company is growing quite fast. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with all of the new names! The good news is, the company is growing which means lots of opportunity for me to move up and grow.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the ongoing sales training and professional development. It’s helping me be a better leader! Please keep it up!
