    Pros

    Excellent domain, right company to work at the right time, No matter what happen to the industry outside, a show keeps going on, Excellent for freshers

    Cons

    >those who built the ark are capable enough to drive the same, your engineers don't need those many number of managers and teams, unite them and see the magic >feed on the technology that is outdated, RBT is good 10 years before, we can still find the way to get upgrade, IoT?

    Advice to Management

    kick out those who're useless, cant find a good work for the engineers, especially the middle management when they play politics to be on the wealthy side

    I worked at OnMobile

    Pros

    Good co-workers, music industry was a plus, great networks made

    Cons

    No room for growth, wanted employees to do great things with limited resources, global company who didn't see a targeted viewpoint. Management only cares about revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Be more intuitive with what each country, product and account needs.

    Pros

    The original US based developers were amazing. They were able to create high quality music apps with minimal resources.

    Cons

    Onmobile took over Livewire, and made a lot of grandious announcements on how they were going to dominate North America and become a billion dollar company. Their attempt at execution of these plans was feeble. The end result was them laying off 2/3 of the US office.

    Advice to Management

    Do your research before acquiring companies and running them into the ground. Understand the business world when coming into a new country and don't assume that the same strategies work everwhere

    Pros

    The only pro working at this company were some of the other employees who all really cared about each other and wanted to make something happen

    Cons

    The leadership, the management, the structure ... the human resource behavior. One of the worst companies I have ever been a part of.

    Advice to Management

    Start over, get new management and stop treating employees like commodities


  6. OK work culture, no innovation, profitable but no future.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to improve technology skills. Work life balance is fine. Sometimes there is heavy pressure with deadlines, but that is common in IT jobs.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits has not kept up with industry standards. Commute to office is long. Is turning into one product company. No innovation.


  7. An international company
