I have been working at Mutual Mobile full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fun, cool perks, bleeding edge, founders are very smart

Cons

poor pay, zero retirement benefits, no company profit share, business decisions are often made with ego and immaturity. They are always hiring...they are always firing...people are always abandoning.

    Pros

    Interesting technology (iOS and Android)!
    Great people
    Very cool customers and projects
    Benefits include free food (cereal, fruit, drinks, coffee, tea, others), game nights, and table tennis!

    Cons

    Spread across too many projects fries my brain, since there are lots of meetings inside and with clients on the outside.
    Politics sometimes gets in the way of having fun - there is the "A" team and then everyone else

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with the engineers - they are the ones that have some of the best ideas for the company, but no one seems to listen. We also have lots of people being hired, but then there are lots of rumors when someone leaves (mostly appear to be fired). What is the plan ?

    I worked at Mutual Mobile full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Mutual Mobile has been a rewarding experience.

    Strong leadership at the very top, pragmatic decision making, and courage to experiment with what the company can do in an unforgiving market; all of these things create an environment that caters greatly to young engineers looking for growth and the space to experiment.

    All you have to do is have the courage and do it. Failures are expensive, but the leadership at Mutual Mobile understand the risks and do so in a manner that keeps you protected.

    The works itself is both challenging and rewarding.

    Office politics is frowned upon, and does not affect the work or the talent.

    Cons

    Culturally, the company can do better; diversity isn't hard to come by in a country of 1.3bn people.

    Self-promotion is a terrible thing; people accountable for others need to do a better job at being leaders, rather than just managers.

    Advice to Management

    Not a lot of people have visibility into the work that you all put in, so it's hard for the rest of the team to empathise.

    The cultural values at Mutual Mobile are great pillars to build upon, and it shows that there is always hope for the future.
