    I have been working at MobilityWare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I joined MobilityWare approximately two years ago based on a recommendation from a previous coworker. I hesitantly applied as I knew very little about the company and was not experienced in mobile gaming, my expertise was in AAA console games and PC MMOs.

    I was nervous at first, but the employees around me were extremely welcoming and spent time getting to know me and help educate me on the differences with what I had been doing before and what I was doing now. As time went on my work ethic and ability was quickly recognized and in the course of the past two years I've been promoted twice. I've never had that at another company and it's been amazing to work with such talented and interesting people.

    The culture in the studio is great, there's lots of small groups that meet up after work for various reasons including D&D, an after work-shader club, and board game nights of various types. Employees just need to check the directory in Slack and join the channels that interest them. These activities are even more accessible as the company prefers employees are not crunching or putting in overtime, so you have a nice work/life balance.

    The company also offers a solid benefits package, and on-site benefits like free provided snacks, sodas, coffee, anniversary trips, and catered lunches on every friday!

    Cons

    It's hard to find real cons with the company. I've been places where we didn't get paid, worked crazy overtime, all sorts of issues and I don't see any of those here. There were some temporary growing pains as the company increased in size quite a bit over the past few years, but overall the vast majority of the hires have been fantastic people who find their groove and work hard.

    Management even goes out of their way to try and address concerns from employees during all hands meetings, taking questions on the spot and working to take action on concerns, even seemingly small things like requesting windows on our doors so we don't collide when rushing in and out, or using more ecologically friendly dishwares like recyclable coffee cups.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to listen to employees, you've been building something great here and I expect it will continue as the years go on. I never knew I'd like this job so much but I have grown very attached to it and my team, and I have management to thank for the opportunities to grow in my career.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MobilityWare.

    Interview

    This company is horrible with communication. Not only that, but the impression I got was that none of their folks really did any work... as evidenced by people who played ping pong all day...

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't really ask anything difficult... this interview was a complete waste of time.   Answer Question
