I worked at Mobile Messenger full-time (less than an year)Pros
I was paid a decent salary during my short tenure at MM. Nice building with easy access to a mall and decent food court. Monday morning bagels.Cons
The primary business model at MM is SMS subscriptions. Remember those old commercials ("text IMASUCKER to 12345 to receive daily horoscope messages")? Well, MM still does that. (Or at least they still did a few years ago - I thankfully have no idea what they're up to today, though it wouldn't surprise me to learn that they're still up to their old shenanigans.) I was sold a long story about how they're looking to move beyond this SMS business model, which is why I left another job to take a position at MM.
Upon starting my new job, I didn't receive *any* training, most notably on their proprietary content management system (which was AWFUL, yet essential to many peoples' job functions). The staff seemed resentful that I was brought on board, so I was treated like dirt by most of my colleagues from the get-go. When I was hired, I was told that the company was going to provide me with any and all tools I need to get the job done. When I requested software (required to do the work I was asked to do), I was almost laughed out of the room. A thousand dollars in software licenses? Please! In short, I was basically put into an impossible situation where success was far beyond reach. As such, I was let go with little explanation and a sad severance package.
Lastly, executives at MM make ungodly amounts of money. You'll see Ferraris, Maseratis, etc in the parking garage. Not suggesting they didn't earn it, but there was undoubtedly a boys club at the top of the MM food chain and they seemed to revel in their separateness. It's demoralizing, to be sure.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Find a business model that doesn't make you look like scam artists. Work harder to make new hires not feel like red headed stepchildren. Drop the absurd business-casual dress code because you won't find young talent who will put up with slacks and button-downs every day.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
