Former Employee - Core Team Developer in Sausalito, CA

I worked at mFoundry as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

I found the work to be challenging and stimulation. Was working closely with the core development team on core features and platform ports.

Very talented senior development leaders from CTO down
Fast paced environment
Fun and challenging technology

Cons

Company has to be able to respond quickly, so be prepared to turn on a dime

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't really have any advice for management. When I worked for mFoundry it was very much a startup company, and I found (at least externally) that management did an excellent job surfing the inevitable ebb and flow (and occasional breaker) that come with being a startup.

    Pros

    Company is doing well, a leader in its particular business sector.

    Cons

    Two houses: product and client services

    Product: Nice team, but work is rather unchallenging. Looking for a nice/safe job, great place. Looking for challenging technical problems or new development - look elsewhere.

    Client services: Not many are held accountable for anything, except that of the developer. QA and management have a pass on missing specifications and everything is dumped/blamed on the engineer and hence hi turnover in such positions. Development is non-existent and is now a support organization. Management is now trying to spin motivational slogans into performance reviews. The way some developers are treated borderline on abuse.

    Pros

    Employees are really cool to work with.
    Work from home if you want to.
    Everyone, including the senior management, is laid back and the work load isn't that bad.

    Cons

    Lots of politics within the senior management.
    Contractors are not given a full time position even after your performance is exceptional. I saw a lot of contractors being underpaid and let go after a short amount of time.
    The company is not really organized and is all over the place.
    Its a good place to work for a few months but you cant set any career goals at this company.
    The food in the kitchen sucks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the politics!
