    Pros

    Futura's strengths are customer focus and professionalism, being open to new ways of doing things, and a collaborative culture.

    Cons

    Could spend some time with developing more of a strategic advantage/core competency and a related value proposition. This is critical as a managed service provider that needs to stand out from the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to formulate a set of compelling services and offerings, then create a demand-generation machine to keep the pipeline full.

    I worked at Futura Mobility full-time

    Pros

    There are not many, though the "company" will treat you to various dinners and lunches during your time there.

    Cons

    Everything other than free food. The "owner" is that, in title only. Short of designing and decorating the office, she's got little to do in the operations. Her husband and his cronies run the organization. Their goal changes almost daily, and they'll never tell you what it is. Your chances of penetrating the "inner circle" are not slim - they're non existent.

    Their plan for the future relies on their son, who wants nothing to do with the company. Also, he's not quite the brightest.

    If you're interviewing for any sales related role, or a "non support" role - something that isn't considered "day to day," be cautious. You'll be used and abused. If you come to the organization with contacts, don't share them. If you come with clients, they too, will be stolen.

    DO NOT TRUST ANYONE HERE.

    Advice to Management

    What management?

    Great place to work. Great CEO and owners. The management team really support their people.

    No cons to think of. Just a great place to work.

    I worked at Futura Mobility full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money is excellent, can take extended travel time, healthcare benefits are good. If you have a good network of friends, information dissemination is good. Really nice cars owned by top managers. Access to football games if you are liked.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, lack of information and communication from C-level executives, unfair advantages for people who are personal friends of top management. Become popular by complimenting top executives or being a football cheerleader.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally and recognize that even the person who cleans the office contributes to your success and income for owners. Listen to suggestions from employees. Be fair!

    Pros

    convenient location as office is very close to Pennsylvania turnpike, Building is very nice, and futura mobility and futura healthcare are relatively small companies, Executive managers have expensive cars.

    Cons

    Seems like owners want to flip the company and sell it so life here will be short lived. Promised made and not kept. Talk can be cheap. Top manager drove former company InfoLogix into the ground with exorbitant personal expenses and all self-serving decisions made. Decisions not made for the good of the company; decisions made for management personal gain. Camaraderie is lacking - select few women seem to get a lot of attention from male top management. HR enforcement lacking. Invites to sports events and other "benefits" are given to those favored women. Middle management does not partake in any of this. They are victims as well. Just used. Shame for them because select few (not based on qualifications) will move onto the next company when this one is sold. A lot of fake jokes and smiles - no true caring at all. Purely - what can you do for me now - environment. If you can see through all of the games and "beautiful people" driving fancy cars, you'll see that expenses, etc. are all based on whether you are liked and play their game.

    Advice to Management

    Tell people the truth. Tell them the plan to sell company when numbers are met. Let people know that their jobs are temporary so the can be prepared for your plans. Be fair to people, not just women who are beautiful and your friends. Think about impact of your behavior on the morale of employees. Does wild spending at top levels and then "no, you cannot order office supplies" seem fair.

    Pros

    Many people do a terrific job and they are compensated. The company is not too big that the owners are inaccessible and they do their best to recognize people.

    Cons

    There are people who are left to flounder in positions for a long time, being overpaid for doing nothing while the superstars of the company become overwhelmed. There is terrible communication from the top down and management has no respect in regards to reviewing employees on time to let them know where they stand.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, make sure the employees know where they stand at all times and what they need to improve on, hold people accountable for their jobs, if they can't do it, they need to be given more training or they should be replaced with someone capable
