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

Pros

Flexibility with working from home, nice facilities, most of the people were nice to work with.

Cons

Poor treatment of anyone lower than Vice President status, no awareness of who really does all the hard work with no appreciation for it.

Advice to Management

Really look into who is doing what for the company as your contractors and staff lower than the VPs are really what makes that company run…

    "Lots of potential. Sluggish to execute. Not Agile."

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

    Pros

    Some of the folks are really insightful and great to work with. Truly a pleasure.
    The products address a solid market segment. Good has a good technical solution.

    Cons

    Many are parked, in a waiting game for an IPO event. They can be unenthusiastic and lethargic. The apps are dated and often do not follow the platform conventions very well.
    Agile gets plenty of lip service, but it is basically a command and control environment. Some ceremonies are used but self-organizing, it is not! Too bad. That inhibits creativity and innovation. It is not an enlightened working environment. If you want an Agile environment, look elsewhere. It is only superficial here.
    The legacy code is an albatross that should result in major refactoring.
    Walk lightly and conform. Dissenting voices are nuked. Tall pegs are hammered.

    Advice to Management

    There is an environment of fear. Failure and experimentation should be embraced. That's how fundamental learning and innovation is accomplished. Dissenting voices are a source of value and insight. Stop shooting them.

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

    Pros

    GOOD was a fairly interesting company, with a reasonable product offering.

    Cons

    VERY inexperienced CEO (Christy). Talk about ivory tower. Senior Management COMPLETELY disconnected from employee base. Stupid and costly acquisitions, overburdened by MANAGEMENT that doesn't do a thing but regurgitate sound bites of the people who actually work.
    Christy, quit parading your baby around the Senior Staff offices (including your nannies) and FOCUS on what the company is STRUGGLING to provide......a reason it exists at all.
