    I worked at Motricity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The majority of management was located on the east coast and they were very understanding and flexible to work with the time difference.

    Cons

    It was difficult to work on assignments when the majority of the team was on a 3 hour time difference. There were about 2 overlapping hours where all members were in the office and not at lunch. The senior management (2007-2010) showed very little promise beyond basic sales and hype-filled presentations.

    Pros

    Start up environment, so if you're a risk taker this might be a chance to build a foundation and put your footprint in the Sand.

    Cons

    Still working on identifying the company, its culture, and how is brands itself in the marketplace. Communications need to be improved and more direction delivered from the management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to build a brand that all employees can be proud of and can articulate to their friends and family.

    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

    Company is full of interesting complex problems
    Peers were very team oriented and were willing to work together.
    Work hours were flexible and company was good about molding work around your life.

    Cons

    Horribly restrictive change control process makes even simple changes a 3 week debacle.
    Benefits just flat out were horrible and getting worse every year.
    Sense the company is imploding. No top down vision of direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a vision and execute it.
    Stop using attrition to pare down your work force, losing your best people this way.
    Communicate and take care of your remaining employees.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager  in  Bellevue, WA
    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with, was industry best, the technical team was able to pull off installation of new Data Centers in Asia Pacific Plenty of good talents from Telecommunications arena.

    Cons

    Due to recent issue with executives, more and more of the talents have either been disappointed or disenfranchised with the low stock performance that there is hardly incentive to keep good talent or attracting new talent. Looks likely to be sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to rebuild character, establish good code and context, and find better directions instead of just relying on recently purchased company. Need products that will last in today's mobile world instead of implementation only on older phones.
