I have been working at Urban Airship full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Smart people, lots of office perks

Cons

Elitist attitudes abound, people running fast and out of control at times, management out of sync, soul-less.

Advice to Management

Try leaving your office and interacting a bit more. Culture isn't just a word and you need to do more than throwing money at it. Hip without a soul is what you are.

    Pros

    Good culture, large market, early leader in the market. Was the leader in push notifications, trying to expand to other areas of mobile engagement with limited success.

    Cons

    Unfocused CEO Leadership, limited product and vision. Product and engineering organization did not deliver on a consistent basis. Go to market team was quite good.
