    Pros

    I really enjoy being part of a highly skilled team that is passionate about their work. I feel valued by my manager, and I enjoy my job. Compensation and benefits are on par with other competitive offerings.

    Cons

    Good Technology is headquartered in California which means I am "working remote" every day. This creates challenges ranging from the time delay to lack of peer interaction and at times can create a bit of a disconnect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't always communicate effectively or timely.

    Pros

    There's a lot going on and we manage to keep it all moving forward. No one has an ego and everyone is willing to work together to get things done. All communication is honest and straightforward and when someone says they will get something done - they generally do. We’re trying to solve really hard problems that no one has solved yet. That means there’s a lot of opportunity for creativity and learning. It’s fun to spend each day figuring out what we’re going to build next.

    Cons

    There's a lot of processes and procedures in place which can make it somewhat daunting to figure out how to do things like file expense reports, resolve a bug, etc the first time.

    Pros

    Good Technology has some of the best and brightest engineers working hard delivering mobility solutions. The engineers are top notch and it is a great pleasure working with them. The team is on fire, working on innovative and industry leading solutions.

    Good has an excellent leadership team, led by Christy Wyatt. Christy sets great vision, gets in to the details, and has hired great talent turning Good into the industry leader in enterprise mobility.

    Cons

    Mobile is fast paced. No it is blazing fast. More than anything you can imagine - with this, we all need to be used to the pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the engineers happy. Spoil 'em. Reward them. And keep charging forward as the leader in mobility!

    Pros

    Products are outstanding, feel very supportive by my new team and colleagues. Department open to new ideas..Leadership during these times are key, my Leader is really good on having a pulse on how the team is doing and takes the appropriate actions to keep us engaged.

    Cons

    As with any growing company, change is happeing all around us. Resources are tight given current conditions, however, I have experienced Leaders asking teams to communicate and prioritize requests to minimize burn out and ensure delivery of commitments. Very positive sign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make "values based" decisions that is right for the organization. Continue to maintain visibility with your employees. Stay the course.

    Pros

    I joined Good two months ago after a long career of working for large corporates in the IT industry. So far I've found a collection of a great people focused on a delivering a mission that will genuinely make a difference in the world. My life has moved from squeezing tiny additional percentages out of existing markets to prioritising where we can go next based upon the number of available hours in the day.

    Cons

    I'm travelling significantly more than I thought I would be... not a problem, just a new working pattern that I need to get used to.

    I have been working at Good Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've found Good to be the most intellectually challenging and rewarding company in my entire career. Every day, I am faced with new and different projects and work with a colleagial team. I've worked with garage based startups and Fortune 100 tech companies, and find that Good is a bit of both! For those who lean in and add value, there is ample opportunity to grow and be rewarded. Management team is smart & hard working but human and with a sense of humor.

    Cons

    not really a con, but jobs are demanding and require daily focus and determination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure new hires are truly a "fit" for the position and ready to step up and run fast to help the company get where it needs to go. If a candidate is looking to coast through their job, they should continue looking elsewhere.

    The talent pool is impressive and inspiring to be around. Opportunities for both career and personal growth. CEO Christy Wyatt has kept our confidence in herself and the company at an all time high.

    Cons

    The pace is highly demanding which can put a strain on your work-life balance, but in a world of mobility - this can be managed more efficiently than ever before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving the dream.

    Pros

    I've been here for some time now now and things continue to improve.
    The senior management is not afraid to remove those managers who are not up to the job, leaving a core team that are really able to drive us forward.
    Performance and commitment are rewarded.

    Cons

    There's still a lot of work to do, and still a number of people who don't yet believe in the management's vision.
    Sometimes that vision is split too many ways for the current resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us a fighting chance to deliver something excellent
