    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

    Company is full of interesting complex problems
    Peers were very team oriented and were willing to work together.
    Work hours were flexible and company was good about molding work around your life.

    Cons

    Horribly restrictive change control process makes even simple changes a 3 week debacle.
    Benefits just flat out were horrible and getting worse every year.
    Sense the company is imploding. No top down vision of direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a vision and execute it.
    Stop using attrition to pare down your work force, losing your best people this way.
    Communicate and take care of your remaining employees.

    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

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

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    Change.

    Great Team, Losing Talent Fast

    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Due 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 ManagementAdvice

    Need 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.

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

    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Massive 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 ManagementAdvice

    Shame 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.

    I worked at Motricity

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Because 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 ManagementAdvice

    Motricity should remember that the most important investment you have is in your people, the intellectual captial, at the company.
