    I worked at Mobile Commons full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent selection of coffee and soft drinks.

    Cons

    - CTO lacks people skills/empathy and does not communicate properly with subordinates.
    - Heads of departments are not receptive to co-workers advice or insights.
    - Salary is grossly below that of similar positions.
    - Lack of growth and innovation within the company and SMS industry.
    - High employee turn over. Most don't stay employed longer than 12 months
    - Lack of social events among co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve management and mentorship. Take on more financial and brand advertisers to subsidize hight costs passed on to Non-profits and government orgs.

    Switch strategy from SMS to emerging OTT channels where there's excitement in those industries. Enterprise mobile marketing is moving very quickly into OTT mobile apps and mobile web. SMS is simply too expensive, slow, and marked with hurdles for companies, brands, and agencies to embrace. Enterprise communication through OTT apps are easier to implement and measure ROI.

    Pros

    Very little requirements on work hours/presence. Great team under the CTO. Lots of support for volunteer efforts.

    Cons

    Senior management have no leadership skills, only interested in reports. Very focused on selling the company. Little involvement in line duties from senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time with the clients to understand what the real demand and problems are.
