    I worked at Good Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *Massive participation by team members in Friday and birthday lunches, holiday, and team-building events. This allowed for better job satisfaction because you felt that you were working with friends and were comfortable enough to have discussions about the product even if you didn't agree.

    * Strong middle-management. Brilliant, respectful, hands on.

    Cons

    * Downsizing lowered morale during my time there.

    * Needs automation.

    Advice to Management

    If the employees believe you care about them, they will move mountains for you.
