I have been working at Mobiquity full-time for more than a year

Pros

Mobiquity has a very impressive list of clientele. As an engineer, you will get to be a part of many projects. And on every project you will learn something new. Yes, the pace is really fast and if you are really good at what you do (and I mean really good - like everybody else says you are good, not just the voices in your head!) this company is a good place to be.

It's not a place where 'You will or may get to wear many hats'; IT IS where 'You will be required to wear many hats'.If you are an adventurous go-getter you will enjoy the challenges (sometimes you may feel like shooting yourself or somebody else but those moments aside...)

No alcohol policy. Liberal culture. Most people are great to work with and very helpful.

Cons

By virtue of being a new company (not a conventional startup anymore) some processes continue to be ad hoc. Folks who come from a large organization experience a culture shock in the beginning.

It takes a certain bent of mind to work in a consulting firm. And sometimes some employees can't take it resulting in either attrition or being discharged.

The flow of work needs to be firmed up - requirements gathering, project estimation, project schedule, what the deliverables should be, intra-organization communication, intra-team communication and other similar processes. Need a 'How-To-Do-This-Right' guide for all of these. (It's a work-in-progress, however)

Hiring process needs to be improved. Be more strict. Don't just hire anybody. Sometimes, wrong people are hired resulting in bad things for the project, the company and consequently the employee.

Could do with a cooler office instead of the present straightjacket space.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some customers are just not worth it and upper management should know when to draw the line. Ensure the flow of work is right, reduce the seeming ad hoc-ness, do better estimations on the schedules and we should be in a great position.

    I have been working at Mobiquity full-time

    Pros

    Free Snackwells cookies - vanilla too (the good kind).

    Cons

    The lack of leadership in this firm is surprising, given that they have about 3 VP's per square foot. Working there was, to be kind, uninspiring. There is no real vision of who they want to be, or why, or how they'll get there. Nobody is apparently capable or willing to grab the reins and inspire some corporate personality. (The CEO doesn't even sit in the same office as the rest of the team because the 12-minute drive is too long. Minutes. Not miles. Ponder that for a moment.)

    With mobility being as hot as it is right now, there is no excuse for spending time here. Go elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look up "aloof" in the dictionary. Then, try not be that anymore.

    I have been working at Mobiquity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a consulting company and there is definitely tons of opportunities to learn and acquire new skills. In fact, it's expected that part of the time you're working at Mobiquity, you're spending time teaching someone or learning something new. Also lots of leadership events on and off work hours. People are genuinely very friendly and talented. Great place to grow a career.

    Cons

    Certain projects require more effort. So work life balance might be questionable, but I believe this probably varies according to the project you're on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bringing in great talent
