    Pros

    -Upper management has open door policy -Receptive to new ideas -Fellow engineers are at the top of their field -If they see something's broken they fix it quickly -Excellent exec sponsors shield you from BS so you can do your job -Overall Compensation, from what I've heard, since going public has actually improved and they are being very fair when leveling roll-over packages of existing employees.

    Cons

    Tend to listen to the customer a bit too much when iterating. But we're steering towards a better balance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the all-hands meetings. Very inspirational and, as an engineer, it's difficult for me to rub elbows so this gentle push is very effective.

    Cons

    the executive team and their reports are not aligned on priorities and direction. it's getting very political.

    The CEO needs to show some leadership and decisiveness. and avoid the continual analysis and asking for more data.

    Pros

    -MobileIron looks good on a resume. -Excellent team of engineers in Austin. Very friendly and helpful management team, esp Sergio B -Excellent troubleshooting resources available

    Cons

    -No defined scope of support. -Sales team weighs too heavily on support guidance and there are too many favors given to the wrong customers because of this -Training/on-boarding process has some kinks, and they are quick to push new "engineers" to the phones. -Strange reimbursement process, company expects you to cover costs and wait for reimbursement too often (and is often rejected for curious reasons) -Management is in California - there needs to be on-site managerial representation in my opinion for morale and HR reasons, the site lead doesn't cut it. -Morale is a rollercoaster and there is a clear disparity in approach between the teams in Austin and MV -Customers are trained to misbehave to get attention

    Advice to Management

    Match 401k for god's sake, you're the only company I've ever worked at or applied to that did not offer matching.

    Pros

    HQ including CEO communicates with entire company on current and future events. Many people work outside HQ and feel like we know what direction the company is heading in. We have company meetings every week. Never a dull moment, this space changes so fast since we support many different mobile OS's that you'll always be challenged. Pay is fair, benefits are good but could be less expensive.

    Cons

    Keeping up with all the different OS's, products and technology can be challenging. Support needs more staff. Since our company is growing so fast, we need more support engineers to keep customers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Always look out for your employee's best interest if you want them to stick around. Support the customers well and they will stay with us. Add more support personnel. Keep innovating and partnering with the right players to keep the competition out.

    Pros

    High integrity company, passionate about mobile, flexible working arrangements, focus on results.

    Cons

    Too much focus on activity and not enough on strategy. Boys club, very sales oriented culture.

    Advice to Management

    Great to have energy around execution, but make sure you're executing to a sound strategy. Promote more women.
