    Current Employee - Lead Software Engineer in Emeryville, CA

    I have been working at MobiTV full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have a really good engineering manager that shield me from all the chaos in the company. I have the opportunity to learn new things things that makes me a better developer. The office view is awesome. And the company still has a good chance to make it big.

    Cons

    There are really friendly but also really difficult engineers in this company. There are smart people, but also plenty of below average engineers. For years they made us write code in Lua and it really kept us out of touch with the latest in Android/iOS development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more smart people with technical leadership. Let go of the experienced, but slow, engineers and don't hire them back.

    I worked at MobiTV full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Incredible views, very gay-lesbian friendly environment with lot of them as senior engineers and directors, weekly social events. Had some good engineers and mobile technology.

    Cons

    No direction, decades old technology, frequent shelving of projects, many clueless managers and directors, recent layoffs and lack of clarity on company's financial future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote worthy people as directors and focus on scalable futuristic products.
