I worked at mBlox full-time (More than a year)
Good pay and benefits. Managers generally seemed to know what they were doing. Due to my shift interaction was limited.
Over reaction to minor incidents. Implementation of product without fully testing. Training was at a minimum. In many cases you were just thrown to the deep end to see if you could swim.
Advice to Management
Better training, less stress on minor incidents. Trust your people to know what to do and let them do it.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at mBlox in August 2013.
I was contacted through e-mail by the Office Manager two weeks after I applied online to set-up a phone interview with the VP of Marketing. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes, and I was asked to submit two writing samples.
A few days later I heard back from the Office Manager to set-up an on-site interview to meet with three contacts (the VP of Marketing, Product Manager, and consultant). The interview took place about a week later. I met with each for 30 minutes. I was asked questions pertaining to my professional background and scenario questions for this position. During the last interview I was told that I would hear back regarding the decision.
A week passed and I e-mailed an HR contact (whom I was told was my point of contact) to follow-up on the status of the position. A week passed...two weeks passed, and I heard nothing back. I double-checked my e-mail, and it was the correct e-mail address indeed. I obviously interpreted the non-response as a lack of interest. I was disappointed with the lack of follow-through in keeping a candidate informed on the decision made, whether favorable or not. After all, I had invested time and I was clearly left in limbo on the status of the decision made.
