    Pros

    The development team is awesome and knows their stuff. Pretty much everyone is great to work with. The company is supportive of working flexible hours as needed. And Mobility is a great product with a loyal customer base.

    Cons

    They haven't found a good path for growth and as a result there are morale problems. Recent ownership and management changes are not helping, at least not yet.

    I have been working at NetMotion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mobility 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Interact more with your with your employee's and do things that will raise morale.

    Pros

    None now (with new the management). Benefits are not great.

    Cons

    Management makes people feel worthless and easily discards employees. Old management actually encouraged people to do great work and it showed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really, none. I don't think there's a way you could improve your management skills other than to stop being in management.

    Pros

    Brilliant 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    I have been working at NetMotion full-time

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Some 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.

    I worked at NetMotion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    High 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 ManagementAdvice

    Setup 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
