Great company, with a somewhat muddled focus

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

Pros

There were many opportunities for internal advancement for employees willing to put in the hard work and effort. The technology and space is really interesting and allowed for an ever-changing environment, with a lot of opportunities to learn and grow professionally. Dynamic and challenging customers and timelines provides an exciting work environment with many opportunities to shine.

Cons

Constantly shifting priorities were at times very disruptive, especially when not well communicated across organizations. Occasional power struggles among executive staff created at times a chaotic environment. Emeryville location, although growing in popularity with tech companies, is not ideal for attracting high quality talent or for utilizing public transportation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The many shifts in priorities created a lot of distraction and lack of trust in company leadership at the working level. Advise management to get on the same page in terms of the direction of the company and try not to be too influenced by every (potential) customer opportunity.

    I worked at MobiTV full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It has a nice view, very friendly people, bagels on tuesday and the pay is actually competitive.
    It's a tough place to get to especially driving 20+ miles but there are plenty of food joints around.
    Thursday happy hour and it's very diverse.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company is stuck in the past trying to become competitive.
    Old technology and very buggy software, monthly outages impacting customers.
    Not sure how they still manage to generate money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Out with the old in with the new. The company needs to innovate instead of dragging the same old technology.
