Poor environment for any professional. Indian management team is dumb

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Monotype full-time for less than a year

ProsCompetitive Salary (for some time), few good technical people (many already left).

ConsThe top management is flawed in India and is very mediocre
Abusive language is prominent in the office. Not at all a good place for female workers, feels very unsafe.
Highly political environment and technical people are treated like slaves and trash
Hiring practices are poor and salary is not a secret.
Managers have full freedom to go and come at anytime. Director comes sparsely and has no inkling of whats going on in the office. Very poor technical competence.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring some professionalism to the Indian management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Monotype is a well run company with good opportunities for making a real contribution.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Woburn, MA (US)

I worked at Monotype full-time

ProsManagement is fair and ethical. Products (fonts and software) are developed in several US offices as well as UK, Germany, India, and China so you may find that there is an office near you. Good engineering and quality practices. Reasonable flexibility regarding work hours and where you work.

ConsThe culture is good but could be better. There isn't much outside interaction with colleagues.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
