    Essentially irrelevant and the world's a better place because of that

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsUsed to be some pros for those that got in the company really early and were able to cash out stock options

    ConsToo many to list. But incompetent, nepotistic management, questionable business practices and God-complex CEO made this the worst company I have ever worked for,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Thoughts!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Durham, NC

    Pros- Be able to take ownership of things and be able to openly share ideas and opinions.

    Cons- Not enough communication from executive team and not enough faith around some of the decisions being made. A lot of times it is possible that a day will feel as if they are not a part of the company itself - this affects the employee morale.

    Advice to Senior Management- Be Open in two way communication.
    - Employees like when the management is part of their day-day life and if there is a friendly atmosphere that prevails. Motricity had great working all last year and if the same continues - the company can hit great heights.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A sinking ship that's run aground. SINK FASTER!

    Operations System Administrative (Former Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsYou will be afforded much time to shop for a new job as you look around. The downsizing should be pretty well done and the demands low, aside from keeping up with AT&T's crazy demands.

    ConsSO MANY. The talent has left. The VCs have given up on this being the next media darling. Jud has taken his pet projects and spun off. The money's dried up, the tech is 3 years old and stagnant. So, uh, unless you like the downhill slide to obsolescence, avoid!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo put it in Ryan's bible thumping language: REPENT! THE END IS NEAR!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Tremendous engineering organization betrayed be incompetent senior management

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsThe engineering organization within Motricity is the strongest that I've experienced in my professional career. The team is extremely dedicated to their work. Not only is the team technically talented but it consists of genuinely nice individuals who are both professional and a joy to work with. The compensation and benefits package are very competitive and raises are consistent with individuals' performances in my experience. The Motricity building in Durham is a very nice place to work. It's in a wonderful area of downtown Durham right by the Durham Bulls Stadium and the American Tobacco Campus. The company is also very understanding of the work/life balance. They're very accomodating of vacation requests whenever they're made.

    ConsSenior management that consistently fails the talented and dedicated workforce. While the physical location is great to look at and well situated, the actual workstations are far from ideal for a software company. They don't offer sufficient insulation from distractions to be as productive as possible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo home.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
