I worked at Good Technology as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Talented team members that really want to ship good product.

Cons

"Good" ol' boy network. Mgrs. don't listen well and ignore your input or advice. A lot of politics for a small company. Don't treat the employees very well.

Advice to Management

Listen, value your employees (don't take them for granted), put your ego aside and focus on the generating a better company culture.

    I worked at Good Technology full-time

    Pros

    Work/life balance is solid. Headquarters is a nice facility with decent commute options. There are pockets of competence and talent amidst the dullards and deadwood.

    Cons

    Entrenched old-timers in key positions create a culture of political tension and stupidity. The internal "service" departments (IT, HR, payroll, etc) are not helpful, pleasant, or competent for the most part. Getting simple things from these teams is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the house-cleaning; don't be afraid to cut deep.

    Pros

    There were some good individual contributors.

    Too many executives, which seem not to value the contribution of those that reported to them.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and value those that enable the organization to run successfully day to day.
