What Employees Say
I have been working at Mango Languages full-time for more than 3 years
Due to all of its advertised, recruiting techniques (Unlimited PTO, flexible work schedules, work from home, etc..) you can leave when you want, come in when you want, take vacation when you want,... work from home when you want, etc... Yes, managers have to click an approve button on the time-off system, but there are no policies in place for managers to be able to say no. When the toxicity and drama gets to be too much, I just up and out of there.
First, let me say - they have lost all female leaders AGAIN! First, the Head of HR left followed by the Marketing Director and then the head of sales. Afterwards, a mass departure of either female... or long term employees have started leaving. And this is not the first time this happened in this company's history, so please listen up carefully. If you want to know if this is just a bitter review or if it has any truth to it, simply ask about their diversity strategies or statements. As a company owned by a group of white men, what are they doing to ensure there is equal representation across the organization? Any intelligent organization that has any staying power will be able to respond to that question with, not just sentiment, but corresponding data. If you want an environment where you can kick back, enjoy some casual racism and sexism, workplace bullying, and a beer on Friday, then this is the place for you. If you're a person who wants to be a part of a business that is keeping up with the pace of business, look somewhere else. Goals are created at the beginning of the year only to have them sabotaged by the leadership team. This company has no clue where it's going. There is zero professional development. I mean ZERO. The COO, cofounder (who is a self-promoted, self-proclaimed COO, not a trained and professionally developed COO) who the entire organization reports to, believes professional development is giving people nonsense projects or moving them all over the organization. The owners are cannibalizing their organization and, sometimes, it's so bad it can be funny to watch.
Advice to Management
My advice? It's a little too late to make any changes - the writing is on the wall. Perhaps start working on your resumes so you won't be completely SOL by the time your business tanks?
