I worked at Cequint full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent people working here, a beautiful waterfront location, dog friendly, lots of free food

Cons

Lots of changes in strategy and planning, and a preloaded, trial-based business model. Lots of negative product reviews.

    Pros

    If you are looking into getting in the mobile industry, Cequint is a good place to start your career. Its products are integrated with OEMs and mobile carriers, and provide some opportunities to learn mobile technologies.

    Cons

    Senior management are too immature and incompetent. Product directions and strategies change every month, if not every week. There are lots of politics and fights between TNS & Cequint Seattle & Florida offices.

    There are no bonuses or stock options. Health insurance premiums rise about 20% every year, and the employees pay a hefty percentage out of their paychecks.

    If you personally know the management before joining the company, you may enjoy the culture. Otherwise, if you are looking for job security and long term professional growth, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take some basic management & leadership courses certainly helps.

    Pros

    Good team environment
    Great location - downtown Seattle near the ferry terminal/ Pioneer Square / Pike Place Market
    Good work/life balance
    Good management very concerned about promoting and culturing a great work environment

    Cons

    Small company, so limited number of products / opportunities
    Company was recently purchased by TNS (a public company). TNS has a competitive benefits package, but does not include equity incentives (i.e. stock). This may be a problem if you like to be "invested" in the success of the company. Cequint understands the issue and is looking to address it through other means.
