I have been working at Good Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Free phone of your choice with data/voice plan
Work problems are relatively easy to solve (if you are not looking for challenge)

Cons

Work is not challenging
Management is totalitarian. Everything is driven from top down, no room for innovation

Advice to Management

Be bold. Let your guys do their job

    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

    Pros

    The Good product allows you to be different in the marketplace. Great atmosphere, good lunch room and snacks. Real opportunity to have multiple products used securely going forward.

    Cons

    2013 Sales strategy did not allow success for sales team, which has caused some turnover. Total change to Executive team with VP's who don't know the products. Changing the sales strategy mid-year made it hard for the sales teams to generate a proper pipeline.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid to compete within the marketplace, and make more features available so more companies would be interested.
