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

    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.

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

    Pros

    1) The good news is free snacks in the break rooms. The bad news, it's Costco. 2) Free lunch if you stick around to listen to the All Hands each week for corporate food. 3) Party for new hires, where you get 2 drinks. 4) Work life balance fairly good and most people not working weekends.

    Cons

    1) Engineering is in disarray and the good managers hit the road long ago. 2) The HQ on E Middlefield is dark and dank, no windows and moldy. 3) Big payday for people working in sales, especially the sales leadership. 4) Cult of personality around CEO, and you know how good things happen to people in cults. If you're an engineer and care about quality and working with the best, don't make eye contact.

    Advice to Management

    As long as you think it's working, you won't need to change a thing

    I have been working at MobileIron full-time

    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.
