    Great team of people to work with. As a sales person you have autonomy to run your schedule your way.

    Lot's of layoffs recently and company is looking to cut expenses everywhere.

    Fun atmosphere but business seems very unstable and not a lot of job security.

    I worked at Hipcricket

    Pros

    Fun work environment, people are pretty cool

    Cons

    Pretty thankless work, especially towards smaller departments. They advertise a great work-life balance, however that's only applicable for large departments, smaller departments get inundated with tons of work and are blamed when other departments drop the ball.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize how much talent you have under your nose - put more value on loyal employees or there will be no motivation for employees to stick with the company. Have more open communication - it's a public company, but feels like management is more secretive with the Hipcricket employees than the general public.

    I worked at Hipcricket full-time

    Pros

    Good technology but it's becoming obsolete.

    Cons

    People there have inflated salaries. Bad attitudes and it's a very unorganized place with no work ethics. People are not being held accountable and clients are being lied to. Very poor morale and can't think of anyone I respect. They shoot from the hip and it's all done on the fly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roll up your sleeves and hit the ground, instead of making rules from your offices.

    Great work environment, good people

    I worked at Hipcricket

    Pros

    Great work environment, good people. Lots of opportunity internally to learn different areas of the business and employees opinions count

    Cons

    There arent any major management issues (not to say that place was perfect), but I would have like to have seen a better 401K and some consistency with the health care. It seemed to change year over year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a fast paced industry and when hiring, this should be explained in detail. In addition, I would suggest that everyone spends some time working on different clients to level the knowledge base.

    Pros

    Top 3 reasons to work at hipcricket are people, people, people! I have the pleasure of working with some of the smartest people I've ever work and who truly know the mobile industry!
    It also helps that we have great technology, strive for excellence with our clients and maintain a great attitude.
