    Pros

    The change in CEO has brought huge change to the company. People really enjoy working with each other, the silos that existed are getting blown up, people are working on cool new projects in the mobile space, objectives for the company are posted and there's alignment between teams. People laugh and have fun - small enough to know everyone but big enough to have decent perks.

    Cons

    Still work to do to get everyone working as a team. Very dispersed organization - Sunnyvale, London, NY, Sweden - makes schedules and communications challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep open to feedback, be up front about the challenges.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at mBlox in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through e-mail by the Office Manager two weeks after I applied online to set-up a phone interview with the VP of Marketing. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes, and I was asked to submit two writing samples.

    A few days later I heard back from the Office Manager to set-up an on-site interview to meet with three contacts (the VP of Marketing, Product Manager, and consultant). The interview took place about a week later. I met with each for 30 minutes. I was asked questions pertaining to my professional background and scenario questions for this position. During the last interview I was told that I would hear back regarding the decision.

    A week passed and I e-mailed an HR contact (whom I was told was my point of contact) to follow-up on the status of the position. A week passed...two weeks passed, and I heard nothing back. I double-checked my e-mail, and it was the correct e-mail address indeed. I obviously interpreted the non-response as a lack of interest. I was disappointed with the lack of follow-through in keeping a candidate informed on the decision made, whether favorable or not. After all, I had invested time and I was clearly left in limbo on the status of the decision made.
