Nice people, tough business

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at mBlox

ProsSome very bright and dedicated teams are at mBlox, the teams in Sweden are excellent. There are some very talented people as well.

ConsThis is a tough market that has undergone a huge number of changes that mBlox will struggle to compete with. It's a low margin business and it's not a growing market.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to for a recent grad to start.

I worked at mBlox

Pros- There are several highly competent senior level managers in key roles that you can learn from.
- They offer a great benefit package (Medical, Dental, Vision, 401K, stock, PTO)
- They try to make the work place fun (monthly potlucks, monthly company wide birthday celebrations, etc)

Cons- The industry overall has shifted and opportunities are limited both within the company as well as in the market.
- For a small company the environment is very bureaucratic
- Some employees are overexerted while others don't have enough to do
- Despite their efforts to maintain morale and a lively culture, they are budget constrained

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to hire a CEO that will stick with the company, within the last five years there have been 5 or 6 different CEOs

Great place to learn however not a place to grow.

ProsSome of the people are amazing

ConsCertain managers are promoted but not held accountable and feel that anything negative is their report's problem and don't help resolve in a constructive manner.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake Managers accountable for their team's performance and don't allow them to take credit for their team's success when you know they aren't impacting that success.
