    I have been working at Modular Mining Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary, generous PTO, interesting product

    Cons

    Toxic work environment with cliquish co-workers & cult mentality, lack of personal and professional growth, judgmental micro-managers, moving hoops and unreal expectations on project and task deadlines. Management plays favorites and some people can do no wrong. If you don't fit in culturally, you will very soon be gone under guise of constructive dismissal

    I have been working at Modular Mining Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * You can pretend you work, and you still gonna get paid. * The new CEO is awesome! * Cool open space to work * Work remote options is quite nice * Nice benefits

    Cons

    * You guys gotta be careful with HR people. They openly gossip about people's issues, which does not generate a good perception of upper management. How would you feel about seeing and upper level HR talking bad stuff about his former CEO? Not good at all right? * There are no real career path for employees, and again, more than local management is an HR issue that hopefully someone can handle or replace the... people we have today.

    Advice to Management

    Careful with your words and to who you open up, because people that I mentioned on the Cons section can use it agains you. No matter if you are an engineer, manager or the ceo, 'cause they will gossip about you anyway.

    I have been working at Modular Mining Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, good work culture/environment, freedom to act, flexible work schedules (including 9x80), many positions get to work on international work or travel to other countries, competitive pay and good benefits, and small workout area. The new CEO has a clear and passionate vision for the future.

    Cons

    Some work areas need renovation (planned), at times try to tackle too many things - need to focus on few most critical, and the plagued like most companies with emails and meetings.

    I have been working at Modular Mining Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Modular has always been a great company, but I'm very excited to see the direction the company is headed with the newly appointed CEO. There seems to now be a strong focus on company cultural and leadership development.

    Cons

    Depending on your role, you may have a lot of growth opportunity, but others have very little. There is still an immaturity in management that badly needs to be addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing so much on technical skills, and hire for attitude, potential and ability to lead a team.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance 9/80 work schedule Fair and knowledgeable supervisors and managers Friendly helpful coworkers always willing to assist and educate

    Cons

    Lack of training. You have to learn from you coworkers or on your own, as no good formal training is available. Moving departments or jobs is more difficult than advertised. Lack of cooperation between product development and support teams. Promotion is rare unless the person directly above you leaves the company. It is also usually given based purely on seniority or politics.

    Advice to Management

    Award skill and achievement rather than years in the company.
