    I have been working at MeLLmo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MeLLmo is filled with smart people who care about their product and about each other. I've enjoyed my employment a lot and come happy to work every day. Proximity to beach and restaurants is great. Benefits are top-notch.

    Cons

    Like other small-to-medium software companies, they are susceptible to big growing cycles and sometimes, unfortunately, to shrinking cycles. It was sad to go through the later.

    Advice to Management

    Managements efforts towards more transparency and communications throughout the organization have not been unnoticed. Keep it up!

    I have been working at MeLLmo full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of awesome people at MeLLmo, I would say it is the best part of the job. People that are fun to work with and intelligent. MeLLmo is a fast paced tech company with new challenges presented every day, which is exactly what I love. It is in a great location. I can honestly say I love my job.

    Cons

    There were a few employees that had very negative attitudes that made it a little more irritating to be here. Some of those people have since left the company. There are a lot of people that have worked here for a long time that are positive. Also, some new and exciting employees came on board recently that has renewed the awesome culture and work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency, it keeps us from wondering what is going on. Also make sure to do periodic salary reviews, it can be discouraging to someone if they are left in the dark and don't know when or if they will ever get a raise. This has also improved a lot lately.

    I have been working at MeLLmo full-time

    Pros

    MeLLmo (makers of Roambi) is mid-sized tech start-up in Solana Beach, CA (about 20 miles north of San Diego). Most of the 70ish employees have been with the company for years, but there's a great influx of fresh blood recently as well. Awesome office right across the street from the beach and surrounded by great restaurants, as well as a train stop making commuting from downtown San Diego very easy. Laid back vibe yet everyone works hard. The product the company makes is very solid and sits nicely at the intersection of cloud, mobility, and data. There's a ton of interesting growth opportunities for the company. Awesome board of directors and the management team is pushing in the right directions. It's an exciting time to be at MeLLmo.

    Cons

    The company was building business apps for iOS before almost anyone else, and probably tried to grow too big too fast. That likely resulted in some mis-steps and made things a bit chaotic, but very few start-ups have a perfectly smooth growth path.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with employees - it will buy you good will. Measure everything to diagnose areas that need focus, and prove ROI on investments you are making. Keep pushing on morale and culture. Do all those things and MeLLmo will grow into it's potential!

    I have been working at MeLLmo full-time

    Pros

    MeLLmo, The makers of Roambi Analytics, is a phenomenal place to work. The work environment is competitive. This competition drives success within the organization. The product is amazing! It has the nicest Interface of any mobile application I've ever used. The people are very friendly and truly want to help you and the company. The CEO is young an energetic and a delight to work for. Ohh yeh and the office is on the Beach. It doesn't get much better than this. This Tech company is on the way up!!

    Cons

    No glaring cons for MeLLmo, maybe documenting more of the knowledge that most of the employees have.

    Advice to Management

    More Team Building outings that keep energy high and everyone in the company informed.

    I worked at MeLLmo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very smart and talented group, competitive pay and good culture.

    Cons

    Growing too fast to mature processes and service customers. Family owned and run that leads to clique atmosphere, very little opportunity for advancement. Needs more investment in stabilizing company.

    Pros

    Awesome team with exceptionally smart people. Small company with great prospects means your work has a big impact. Product itself is excellent -- something you're proud to work on. The new CEO has unified the company around a coherent product vision and is lining up high value deals and partnerships like it's going out of style. Work/life is very well balanced compared to a lot of startups. Office is literally across the street from the beach -- surfing at lunch is a thing.

    Cons

    The company went through some tough times and had to lay off some good people. Luckily things are looking MUCH more promising these days. Budgets are still a bit tight, meaning perks and benefits are a bit thinner than similar sized companies.

    Advice to Management

    As the company starts growing again be sure to devote some resources to the people who stuck with you through the lean days.

    Pros

    Has to be one of the most talented product development teams anywhere. Good relationship between business and product teams. Everyone on the same page. Everyone at the company understands business goals. Product and technology are evolving rapidly with smaller team and more engaged developers

    Cons

    There has been some attrition which has affected morale, but in most cases it has actually been a good thing for the company and for the overall health of the organization

    Advice to Management

    Continue the open lines of communication with all employee's Don't be afraid to communicate transparently when there is attrition, its a normal and sometimes healthy part of a company's evolution

    Pros

    Product was ok in the beginning, but stale now. The older team was fun to work with. They built relationships on trust. But this is non-existent now.

    Cons

    Lack of execution, no transparency or morale. They brought in garbage from a legacy company to manage and this essentially ruined the culture of trust and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your fundamentals and reward by merit.
