    Pros

    Leadership team had a clear strategy which they proactively communicated it with employees. the COE was smart, high energy and fun.

    The work was very hard but so was the payback. Good is one of few recent start-ups that did well by its employees and investors

    Advice to Management

    Take time off and have fun. it was hard by fun. working at Good is an experience i will always remember because of you.

    Pros

    Solid leadership: under Christy Wyatt, the company has begun flourishing. It has caused a bunch of turnover for older folks who don't want to embrace change, but that is completely expected. Christy is a very seasoned leader in this market space, and has a clear understanding of what we need to do in order to succeed.

    Blue chip customer base: it's not everywhere you work where you can say you are interacting with the world's leading logos. It's cool to know that many of the CEOs of the world's most important companies go to sleep and wake up using Good products.

    Industry leading products: widely recognized as the leader in security, dominating Blackberry in the market, and creating new technology for the mobile enterprise space on a daily basis. Seriously there is very little in the space being offered to customers that Good didn't invent first. Why? They have a strong understanding of the market space, what challenges customers are going to face, and invest in the future.

    Smart people who care: One of the best things working here is that you will work with smart people who care about each other. New people are embraced and welcomed. You never ask for help and not receive it. It's probably the strongest cultural benefit.

    Cons

    Still maturing as a company: as mentioned in the Pros, lots of turnover as Christy creates a new culture of performance of performance and customer focus. She has brought in some great new leaders, and has held on to some of the more talented old ones. This all creates turnover, but it has stabilized.

    You work hard here, and expectations are high. If you aren't passionate about what the company is doing, then you probably won't be happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Share more about the future vision for the company.

    Pros

    Impressive leadership team that works well together and has made massive strides forward under Christy Wyatt's leadership the past year. Industry-leading product used by half of F100 that is only getting stronger in user experience, platform and security. Just introduced cloud option. Good perks for employees: competitive comp packages, snacks and light meals (breakfast and lunch), company events (St Patty's party, Bollywood bash, Halloween dept decorating competitions, etc.) Hard working, innovative culture. Lots of career upside in a hot market with a market leader. Employees who have been here a while say this is a new Good -- you can feel the energy.

    Cons

    Fast growth of company can make it tough to keep up at times. Internal software/systems could be improved to further accelerate productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome focus and execution!

    I have been working at Good Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm coming up on one year anniversary (in a few months). It's been an amazing journey so far, offering me the ability to make a real difference. As the company continues its transformation, it's very clear that all cross functional teams are coming together.

    Cons

    It may be considered a con, but the reality that folks looking to join Good should be aware of is that we deliver results (typically in a short amount of time). Candidates should be comfortable working at a pretty fast clip.

    I have been working at Good Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    These are my first impressions as a one-month-old employee. Coming from a gigantic corporation, one of the things I appreciate most is the relative simplicity and smallness of Good--it's nice to have a clear vision, clear sense of purpose, clear roles, clear product strategy, and on-boarding is just a lot easier when you can go downstairs and see IT and HR in the flesh. But there's nothing small about the passion, innovation and opportunity--this is a company that thinks big and is poised for even bigger things as the BYOD revolution continues sweeping through businesses worldwide and secure mobility solutions become an ever-increasing necessity.

    Cons

    Just in terms of my job, some things are a little behind the times and resources are thin. But it's a growing company, I knew what to expect coming in, and management is giving a good indication that I'll get what I'm asking for. I also can't say I like the generic office space or my little "workbench," but at the same time it's a lively place and the kitchens are well-stocked with all kinds of free goodies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking big!

    I have been working at Good Technology full-time

    Pros

    I've been here for some time now now and things continue to improve.
    The senior management is not afraid to remove those managers who are not up to the job, leaving a core team that are really able to drive us forward.
    Performance and commitment are rewarded.

    Cons

    There's still a lot of work to do, and still a number of people who don't yet believe in the management's vision.
    Sometimes that vision is split too many ways for the current resources

    Advice to Management

    Give us a fighting chance to deliver something excellent

    Pros

    The talent pool is impressive and inspiring to be around. Opportunities for both career and personal growth. CEO Christy Wyatt has kept our confidence in herself and the company at an all time high.

    Cons

    The pace is highly demanding which can put a strain on your work-life balance, but in a world of mobility - this can be managed more efficiently than ever before.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the dream.
