    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.

    Pros

    Peer collaboration. Everyone was together on dealing with chaos. When something went wrong, we worked together to resolve the issues.

    The management teams have changed too many times. Difficult to follow the leaders when there were so many changes happening up above.

    Advice to Management

    Who's running the show now? What is the identity of the company now?

    Pros

    Good attracted many smart and dedicated employees. The products were needed in any highly regulated industry and that helped make sales easier.

    Cons

    The CXO staff and especially the CEO sold all of the hard working dedicated employees down the river while they left the company with plenty of money in their pockets and very little time invested actually building the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look at yourself in the mirror each day and consider the people you hurt in order to build yourself up. Many employees had dedicated their entire career to help build the business that you were to take care of and maximize shareholder value. They only value you cared about was the number on your bank statement at the end of the company sale.
