    I feel happy to have left

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    ProsThe individual contributors are good to work with. Remaining lower- and middle-tier management is realistic about the company's future.

    ConsThis company is in trouble. It requires new leadership and a new direction. The feature phone business is drying up, and competitors have booted Motricity out of the Asian market. Mobile marketing and advertising have a bright future, but leadership team doesn't seem to have a roadmap for becoming a part of that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Team, Losing Talent Fast

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    ProsGreat team of people to work with, was industry best, the technical team was able to pull off installation of new Data Centers in Asia Pacific Plenty of good talents from Telecommunications arena.

    ConsDue to recent issue with executives, more and more of the talents have either been disappointed or disenfranchised with the low stock performance that there is hardly incentive to keep good talent or attracting new talent. Looks likely to be sold.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to rebuild character, establish good code and context, and find better directions instead of just relying on recently purchased company. Need products that will last in today's mobile world instead of implementation only on older phones.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Politics reign supreme. Forget about responsibilities and just practice your golf swing.

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    ProsThe rank and file are good people, who are enthusiastic about life and are genuinely talented. They make coming to work each day worthwhile.

    ConsMassive layoffs, insecure leadership, and apathy abound. Zero chance for career growth. Zero recognition. Several of the management team contribute NOTHING and actively work to stay away from their employees. In three years I had exactly TWO face to face meetings with my manager. One senior manager was so out of touch he no longer knew what technology platforms we were using or what projects were being worked on. He cost the company tens of thousands, yet they promoted him.

    Upper management has giant egos and is far more interested in lining their own pockets than in building a sustainable and successful long term company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShame on you! You have nothing to be proud of. Just know that you'll you're not immune to the unannounced layoffs or "collapsed positions." Next week could be your last.

    Work hard, play hard.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsThe best reason to work at Motricity is the ability to work in the mobile industry. Mobile is very exciting and changing everyday, which offers interesting business and technology challenges.

    ConsBecause Motricity's business is driven by a few, large customers, there is a big focus on custom solutions for these clients' short term needs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMotricity should remember that the most important investment you have is in your people, the intellectual captial, at the company.
