What is health insurance like at Mobiquity?

Pros

The (expensive) health insurance is great. The kitchen has some snacks and LaCroix. There are a handful of excellent people working there.

Cons

Interviews: The interview process was fairly easy - there was an HR screen, the two technical screens where they asked the exact same basic questions. After that, a code challenge (no feedback). Benefits: No 401k match, compensation significantly lower than industry standard, laptop and some keyboards provided, but you'll have to buy your own equipment if you want anything decent. The desks and office chairs are cheap and falling apart, and are terrible for your health. Parental leave policy is subpar. PTO is 2 weeks for the first 5! years or so, and non-negotiable. You may or may not have to travel a lot, with little notice. No support for conferences. Promotions and raises seem to be based on friendships and not on competence. Culture: There is very little diversity in the offices, with US managers actively biased against employees in India. Inappropriate conduct by tech leads towards women in the office. No D&I or sexual harassment training of any kind. Because of the friendships in management and with some employees, it is not a safe environment to come forward or protest. Backstabbing and putting down coworkers seems to be a treasured skill. The "On-Ramp" program is a nightmare of incompetence. Expect 14+ hour days, with little to no time for bathroom breaks or meals. Good luck if you have a family, need medical accommodations, or are anything but a 20-something white dude straight out of college. Engineering: Little to no standards for code quality or expectations. A ridiculous balance of meetings to time for work. No growth potential as an IC. A team of native mobile devs was just forced to all learn and switch to React Native (and only given 2 weeks of self-directed study to learn) for a client that decided switch their entire strategy. Excessive amounts of micro-management make it difficult to complete any work. Poor planning means developers often have to wait for half of an active sprint for resources to be available to complete assigned work. On-boarding and documentation on teams is terrible, and it's a very "sink or swim" environment. Tech debt/code smell on most projects is massive, because there is never opportunity to work on anything that is not client-facing. Management: Communication in general is very poor at the company, on all levels. Management keeps talking about how there is more work, with big clients right around the corner, but developers are still sitting around without work, and employees are underpaid. If you can't pay your people your business isn't doing as well as you think.

Advice to Management

Get your management structure figured out, and get your managers training. People skills are vital for people that manage other people. Pay your employees an industry standard wage if you want to keep them around for more than a year or two. Stop allowing bad customers to dictate your business policies. Moderate your Slack and offices - you have some big issues with racism, sexism, and "boy's club" behavior.

Does Mobiquity offer tuition reimbursement?

Pros

1. Startup mindset 2. Strong leadership team (CEO, COO, CFO, and CCO are fantastic) 3. Made great inroads into Healthcare

Cons

1. Employee benefits like 401K matching, tuition reimbursement is lacking 2. Company attention to smaller office teams could improve 3. Depending on the project and your role, work life balance can be a little challenging. Company always looking to work with you and client to help make these better.

Advice to Management

Push more in Healthcare. We have made a lot of great progress here and have lots to talk to future clients and investors

What is the retirement plan like at Mobiquity?

Pros

- growth opportunity - profitable - bonuses - great, inspirational CEO and Executive Team - tech stack is broad and keeps people interested - good benefits - Macbook shop, everyone gets a new laptop - kitchen's always stacked with food - people here are great to work with, good people to surround yourself with. Everyone is very approachable and available if you need help.

Cons

No 401k match. However, this is not a dealbreaker because we are focused on receiving bonuses for now! The company has completely turned around with the new CEO and has been profitable every quarter since he joined. I think if we have this continuous growth and profitability year after year, they could do a 401k match.

No 401k match.
