Pros

IconMobile has a good location on the Santa Monica Promenade.

Cons

IconMobile was so poorly managed it was hard to get anything done, the workspace was dirty and cramped. Employees were always disappearing - you never knew if they were quitting or getting fired. I'd try to do my work but the ECD would just do it all over and not listen to anyone else's opinion.

    Pros

    i stayed at icon as long as i did because of the wonderful colleagues. to a person, they are funny and smart. the dev's and pm's get it and are fun to work with. the head of ux is super smart and laid back and really good to work with. they keep changing tech directors but they all seem pretty smart. the head pm in socal doesn't bs us and really protects the design team. i don't know the seattle people but they all seem nice from afar.

    oh, and the free beer on tap is awesome.

    Cons

    the sr. design managers are overloaded and aren't available. the company changes direction daily. account is bright, but they end up doing the design work themselves.

    there is alot of yelling and gossip. people are quitting daily b/c of the executive team and the way they treat people and how little they understand about what we do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop yelling at your employees. put some people in charge who are older than 25. stop changing your mind every day.

    I worked at iconmobile full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment.
    Wonderful people.
    Top skills.
    Great learning place.
    Most interesting projects and clients.
    Very consistent and dependable.

    Made a couple of very good friends.
    Overall I had an unforgettable time working in this very solid company!

    Highly recommended!

    Cons

    A bit too formal and somehow risk averse.
    No perks.
    Mildly inclusive.
    Slow reaction to change and emerging trends.
    Often too fixed in "what we know" and not ready to listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too awesome, but should also lighten up a bit and listen more! Consider a few smart and nice perks that fit the company culture. Encourage growth. Encourage and support often team building exercises. Increase exposure to the new and different throughout the company. Too many nice and relevant events happening in Berlin and Germany in general. Participate more.
