    Pros

    Great team dynamics with a strong focus on morale and enjoyable working environment.

    Cons

    Seemingly endless mergers and acquisitions leading to a constant worry regarding redundancies and layoffs. It seems as though nearly every month there were layoffs in the 3 years I was there.

    Also, very little professional development, (ie: goals, career track discussion, etc)

  2. Interesting place to work

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. A lot of talented co-workers that knew how to work as a Team and help each other out.

    Cons

    Company failed to innovate with a new platform and/or services for an International audience. Management failed to steer the ship in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Research your demographic before taking an old product Internationally. People in the US are much more likely to spend money on entertainment than those abroad.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Motricity is the ability to work in the mobile industry. Mobile is very exciting and changing everyday, which offers interesting business and technology challenges.

    Cons

    Because Motricity's business is driven by a few, large customers, there is a big focus on custom solutions for these clients' short term needs.

    Advice to Management

    Motricity should remember that the most important investment you have is in your people, the intellectual captial, at the company.

    Pros

    Growth Opportunities are available to those that seek them.
    Benefits and compensation packages are comparable to industry standards.
    A large number of excellent people work there.

    Cons

    Indifferent Management team doesn't appear to actually care about employees, although they say the right things, they lack follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees and they will take care of you. Sell what you can deliver, not what you can sell.
