    Good Company Lots of change

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMobility is a awesome product. It's not in a well defined product space so it must be sold but once you can get a customer to try it they are hooked and it's easy to close the sale.

    ConsThe company was recently acquired by a capital equity firm and they brought in their own management team and they are changing thing big time. Everyone is very nervous about their jobs and the future of the company. Morale is low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInteract more with your with your employee's and do things that will raise morale.

    New Management is clueless

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsBrilliant software engineers and great benefits for a company of this size. Folks in QA, Lab and Engineering seem optimistic and generally satisfied with their jobs.

    ConsVery low morale throughout Operations (Sales, Finance, Marketing, IT) with unknown future ahead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop letting your reports earn your paycheck for you and do some work. Take note that your employees are dissatisfied and dropping like flies and DO SOMETHING. If you are new to the company, act like it. Take time to get to know your team and build relationships with your reports.

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

    Good company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe Fremont area in Seattle is a great place to work in. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops, bars/pubs etc. The canal and Lake Union is at the footstep of the Adobe buildings that NetMotion resides in.

    The leadership change appears to be a good thing - expectations are high on both the execs side and employees' side.

    Training is not the same across the board, some departments/groups have a better on-boarding plan than others.

    Pay scale is somewhat competitive, vacation benefits are awesome.

    ConsSome departments do better than others with personal growth. Some managers haven't helped their employees at all, while there has been some that have helped grow people's careers and promote.

    Medical benefits could be better.

    Sometimes issues with collaboration between departments, but its getting better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lots of Talent but Poor Execution.

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsSome of the best software developers you can find. The software is well executed, relatively bug free, and built with security in mind.

    Great Benefits for a company of this size. Separate vacation time, 401k matching, flex time when needed, and great vacation to start.

    Fun, family, atmosphere in the Seattle office.

    ConsHigh quotas that are out of reach for most quarters.

    High amount of travel required.

    Very little remote software installations, most require travel onsite,

    Advice to Senior ManagementSetup sales efficiencies to increase profit. Rely on remote technologies such as Webex to conduct sales trials and reduce travel time and expenses. Reel in wasteful spending on marketing events with celebrities. Reward people for tenure with bonuses or at least some recognition

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

    Being in sales at NetMotion sucks

    Sales Executive (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsMobility is the easiest software to sell. Just give a short live demo and it's done.

    ConsThere are a lot of VP's for a company with only about 100 people. VP's must make up 25% of the company. That should tell you how many people are actually contributing meaningful work. With an incredibly high turnover rate in sales, it's a difficult place to spend more than a year. The sales people who are still employed after 5 years are essentially lap dogs for execs and get ultra preferential treatment yet never meet their quotas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making irrational decisions.

    Sales Exec Experience Review

    Sales (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsTechnology is highly relevant and sales engineering team longevity is excellent. New CEO has a great reputation as a thought leader and knows how to build a great team.

    ConsThe sales management approach is led by fear and there is no focus on the basics of sales training nor product training. High turnover in last 2 years. Messaging continues to change every few months. This is not a stable or healthy environment for anyone that contributes to sales (marketing, business development)

    Advice to Senior ManagementCEO needs to evaluate senior sales management and how staff is treated. CEO or HR needs to attend all meetings to understand the level of professionalism happening in the company.

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

    This is a small company that can adapt to the ever changing business landscape

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsSenior management respect, trust and independence towards managing your own workflow.

    ConsThe long workweek due to the international emphasis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be a bit more flexible when closing the year-end financials.

    Great product, mixed bag for a working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGreat technology, exceptional product in terms of quality and usefulness; outstanding people: smart and great to work with. Flexibility for working hours.

    ConsConstant struggle as a small company to succeed quarter to quarter despite great product; frequent direction changes; always fighting fires, often as a result of attempts to take shortcuts in staffing or development time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to find a way to increase revenues faster or secure a more substantial source of funding. Ideally, should sell company to larger corporation with deeper pockets to give product the push it needs.
