    Give satellite offices a platform to provide feedback.

    I have been working at InMobi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) Overall ambition, vision are unmatched in the industry 2) Global - I work with teams in China, India, UK often 3) Amazing business teams worldwide - awed by the ppl I meet and work with (I'd say it's a Google-like pedigree/quality when it comes to ppl) 4) Easy access to founders - they're quite down to earth and reachable

    Cons

    1) Not a hardcore product firm, so sometimes playing catch up on product to firms in the valley 2) Large company (900+ folks) so there's some noise in the system - slowing execution in places

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on stable, best-in-class tech

    I have been working at InMobi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at InMobi for a few months now and I could not be happier. The positive energy and entrepreneurial spirit in the office is contagious. I have heard some stories of what it was like in the past but they have obviously made the right changes and right hires over the past few months to fix those issues. It is a pleasure coming in to work every day and having the opportunity to work with such an inspiring and fun group of people. I am truly excited for the future of this company and cannot wait to be a part of what happens next. InMobian for life!

    Cons

    The only major downside is the time zone difference between the SF office and headquarters (bangalore). Both locations feel this is an issue and are therefore flexible with their time.

    Advice to Management

    I can tell that management has really taken past issues to heart and are making the right hires to create a positive shift. Keep it up!

    Pros

    I've been with InMobi for over 2 years and I love the work environment. The management has gone though some transitions but now I feel like we are in a great place. Love the flexible work schedule, travel and company culture. I can't see myself working anywhere else.

    Cons

    Any company has growing pains... we're going from startup to global player.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the new commitment to creative and design

    I worked at InMobi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people working out of this spacious modern office are wonderful, professionally and personally. Catered lunches and frequent social activities make working here fun. Colleagues from all areas of the business are extremely competent and strive for excellence.

    Cons

    Leadership located in India, and poor global communication makes company culture, priorities and goals largely inaccessible. Lots of turnover - while employed office population dropped from ~50 to ~18. Questionable market outlook and seems to be playing catchup in feature offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Improve global communication beyond quarterly business reviews - send stronger early signals re: market shifts and the company's response. Stop trying to do everything in-house technology-wise - there are people who have solved your problems before.
