    I worked at mBlox

    Pros

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

    Cons

    This 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 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at mBlox

    Pros

    Some of the people are amazing

    Cons

    Certain 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make 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.
