I have been working at Good Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Solid leadership: under Christy Wyatt, the company has begun flourishing. It has caused a bunch of turnover for older folks who don't want to embrace change, but that is completely expected. Christy is a very seasoned leader in this market space, and has a clear understanding of what we need to do in order to succeed.

Blue chip customer base: it's not everywhere you work where you can say you are interacting with the world's leading logos. It's cool to know that many of the CEOs of the world's most important companies go to sleep and wake up using Good products.

Industry leading products: widely recognized as the leader in security, dominating Blackberry in the market, and creating new technology for the mobile enterprise space on a daily basis. Seriously there is very little in the space being offered to customers that Good didn't invent first. Why? They have a strong understanding of the market space, what challenges customers are going to face, and invest in the future.

Smart people who care: One of the best things working here is that you will work with smart people who care about each other. New people are embraced and welcomed. You never ask for help and not receive it. It's probably the strongest cultural benefit.

Cons

Still maturing as a company: as mentioned in the Pros, lots of turnover as Christy creates a new culture of performance of performance and customer focus. She has brought in some great new leaders, and has held on to some of the more talented old ones. This all creates turnover, but it has stabilized.

You work hard here, and expectations are high. If you aren't passionate about what the company is doing, then you probably won't be happy here.

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

    Pros

    Generally, employees treat each other well

    Cons

    Lack of communication within and between departments. More heavily siloed than any other place I've worked

    Some execs are wholly unqualified to do their jobs

    The company cares much more about managers than worker bees. "Managing up" at the expense of reports is not spotted or questioned. Employee feedback is ignored

    Over two years, the poorly rated bread-and-butter product was neglected except for facelifts, while other questionably useful apps were rushed out before they were ready
