    I have been working at Mobiquity

    Pros

    - Tons of beer, snacks, and office distractions like a ping-pong table.
    - Tons of dogs at the office. One even urinates with impunity.
    - Can get pretty loud at the office during quiet hours.
    - Low wages.
    - Company structure is very top-heavy. So, so many VPs. It's like they hired the entire graduating class of Harvard Business School to run one of the most basic and obvious business models of our era.
    - Lose clients often. Possibly because they charge clients senior dev rates (and promise senior dev results), but staff projects with the most junior of devs, and the clients find out once the shoddy work is shipped. It's just a theory, so I'm not sure.
    - Don't have impressive clients to begin with.

    Cons

    - I can't really think of anything. I'm actively looking for a way out. Any prospective employers reading this, please reach out to me at *redacted*.
    - They've treated some people very harshly when they fired them. One guy came from another country and was fired a couple weeks in. Another guy was scheduled to give a MobTalk (insightful tech talks by the company's finest) and he was just fired instead. Even the office dogs get better treatment.
    - 80-hour workweeks are always fun. And happen always.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Pay up and hire some programmers.
    - Step up and fire some of yourselves. You don't need this many VPs and managers.

    I worked at Mobiquity

    Pros

    Genuinely nice people. There are some young talents that are not jaded yet.

    Cons

    They do not have a clue how to make the place appealing to the staff. Salaries are no where near competitive. In exchange for market wage, employees have titles that wildly surpass their credentials. The work is performed to elicit the client's nod, not the business objectives of the deliverable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay market wages. Bring in leadership that would develop talent and processes. Be a partner to the clients, not a sweat shop.

    Pros

    Open and flat work environment. Collaborative culture. Deep desire to do right by our clients. Big name happy customers, especially in the healthcare and retail space. On top of our research game when it comes to applying new technology to business problems.

    Cons

    More communication is better. Recent HR executive changes will assist in building out best practices for comms, training, advancement, mentoring. Need better cross-office collaboration and knowledge sharing on best practices and customer stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the growth path alive. Ensure leadership and career opportunities for your employees. Provide 401k matching.

    A fun, flexible environment for developers who enjoy learning

    I have been working at Mobiquity full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Excellent work-life balance. People work hard but don't feel pressured to stay in the office past 5 p.m. As a developer, this gives you a lot of freedom to work on independent projects and research new technologies.
    - Ability to work remotely. Employees can work from anywhere without formal approval. It's part of the culture because the workforce is distributed across 12 offices worldwide.
    - A variety of interesting projects. Most developers work on projects for big-name (Fortune 500) clients. One month you could build a website for an investment bank. The next month you could create an app for a biotech company. The work never gets old because it's always changing.
    - Our tools evolve rapidly. If you stumble upon a new web framework, for example, there's a great chance you can suggest it to your technical lead and it will be incorporated into a client project. Projects tend to involve new and interesting technologies, which will challenge you to learn and get up to speed quickly.

    Cons

    - No 401K matching
    - From a development standpoint, each project is managed a little differently. For example, some teams emphasize code reviews while others have little to no review. As I said, this setup has its perks in terms of introducing you to new technologies, but some developers complain about it because they want the processes to be more streamlined.
    - There doesn't always seem to be a cohesive corporate culture because teams are so geographically distributed and they're working on such different projects. However, the people really are great, and management (at least in the development side of the organization) is investing in programs that bring developers together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in programs that build corporate culture and streamline best practices for development. Consider matching employee 401K contributions.

    I have been working at Mobiquity full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot as you're forced to work long hours on stressful projects. The other employees are okay, pretty smart. There's a ping-pong table. Decent benefits. If the company can get it right in the next few months there is a small possibility of a bright outlook.

    Cons

    Lots of promises of better things to come and increases salaries which never seem to happen. Being forced to use outdated development techniques because senior developers refuse to change. Company is not able to adapt fast enough to latest development trends (ios 8, iphone 6/6+) because of this. Way too many QA people because the apps are so error-prone from the stressed out conditions developers are forced to deal with (It shouldn't take 40 QA people to tell if apps are usable, they're not). Many tech leads don't seem to understand anything really, I'm honestly not sure why we have them. Just not enough to keep anyone happy, bad salaries, bad projects, no review of performance despite lots of promises, and nothing at all to keep you motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more nerds to help with the real decision making. A technology company run by a bunch of formers CEO's is just how you expect it. Direct stress downwards, get as many clients as possible, keep taking their money, and never generate anything of real value.

    Pros

    If you like contributing to lots of companies apps, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Aigle is a joke. QA is strong, that is good. But delivering a product that meets the specs and not the needs of the customer, nor does it work, is not the key to long term success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down, take a deep breath. Figure out why the clients are unhappy, why the code doesn't do what they need, even if it does do what it says they wanted it todo. Oh, the 41b Visa is not meant to exclude citizens. Stop it, that's unethical. Ok, hiring 41bs but pay them the same as citizens. Sleazy...

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people who expect the highest quality of work from each other. This can also increase pressure on an employee (in a good way) if a consultant's output isn't going to be the best for the client. The environment is fun and a bit like a startup. The management team does communicate quite a bit although this can always be better.

    Cons

    There are the typical growing pains of a high growth company. Also, the company has not found the right balance of agility vs. too much structured processes. There is constant change in the organization which does help to address this. Building a strong culture in a consulting company is hard because project teams are working on and in the client's culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue working to build a culture and keep up the communication.

    Pros

    Diffferent projects in miltiple devices and platforms. After 1 year your book will thank you... If you can last ;)

    Cons

    CCO left along with half the creative talent.
    The replacements are yes men/woman who will churn out work that shows little thought and a lot of ego.

    You hear "agile" you never see "agile" you hear "collaboration" you maybe get 1 day of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wont listen so why bother. Theyll write a few nice reviews to offset this one.
