Nice place to work day by day however there's problems at the top with direction of the company.

I have been working at Good Technology full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The free food doesn't hurt. The place empties out at 530 pm. The compensation packages are ok however quotas are ridiculous making it very difficult to make decent money,

Cons

Disconnects from group to group make it difficult to determine if the company is in synch. I didn't see many promotions either so I question upward mobility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers should invest more in their teams rather then just rolling up numbers.

    Pros

    Great product and vision. Nice salaries. Some very talented folks in engineering, account management and channel, but none of them are appreciated for their knowledge or experience

    Cons

    Toxic environment. So top heavy with unqualified leaders. Upper management makes knee-jerk decisions in a vacuum and pays absolutely no attention or consideration to the actual experts in the positions below them. As a current employee, it's so sad to see how poorly this company is run. Sales strategy is broken at best. Let the sales team do their job and just leave them alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good needs to just stop, sit back and actually listen to their employees. Oh, and they need to massively clean house at the VP level. When will companies learn that the #1 way to see your sales numbers fall is demotivate your sales team? Good is really good at demotivating everyone. This needs to be fixed, and it stats with getting rid of all sales management.

    I have been working at Good Technology full-time

    Pros

    - free snacks and drinks in some offices
    - a large of number of great people

    Cons

    - they keep laying people off (another round this week)
    - for June 2014, they are retrospectively adjusting commission for their top 10 salespeople, cutting their payment in half or more
    - they mess with commission plans frequently for a lot of sales people, adjusting targets that are already high - and making them higher
    - it's obvious they don't want to pay their salespeople for generating sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - be transparent and treat staff like adults
    - share the pain in stead of inflicting it over and over again on employees (layoffs and payment reductions)
