      Many priorities can make it challenging to focus.

      Pros

      InMobi is a company that runs lean where everyone has their part to help raise the bar quarter after quarter. A leader in the mobile ad space InMobi continues to push its limits. A good mix of culture and hard working people. The company takes great care of everyone in the office food, drinks, and catered lunch provided everyday. Founders and executive team are very smart folks as well as personable. Expect to hit the ground running and never stopping.

      Cons

      May have to take late or early meetings with the central teams in India. It's a global company so it should be expected.

      Don't work here if you're not Indian. If you're not Indian and don't play politics, good luck.

      Pros

      Really can't think of any. The flexible wfh policy, but soooo many people abuse this. Multiple people show up to work between 11-2/3pm and then leave and are not available after they leave.

      Cons

      Unfortunately all of the negative reviews dating back to 2014, are all still relevant and TRUE. The positive reviews are coerced by HR. No go to market strategy for new products. It's usually half-built before they roll it out for adoption. Leadership forces you to pitch to clients. Majority go to market and don't work or they pull the plug bc resources leave. Client adoption and success are rare. Middle management is horrible. They do layoffs quite frequently. Once a quarter the last 4 quarters. Acquisitions are poorly executed and rarely actually integrated in and used. Great way to throw away money and ensure layoffs. Very much a us vs. them culture with Indians vs. rest of the employees. They speak in Hindi nonstop, which creates an uncomfortable environment in the US. The Indians ONLY protect their own.

      Avoid - bad practices, bad culture, bad leadership

      Pros

      Healthcare benefits are not bad. Daily provided lunch. A few of my colleagues were decent, empathetic human beings.

      Cons

      InMobi is not interested in the success of its customers or employees. It is driven by one thing - financial gain. Some of the business practices I saw over my tenure were flat-out fraudulent. Leadership is constantly focusing on short-term gain regardless of what it means for the future - causing the organization to continually pivot and burn bridges with partners and customers. The culture was a proverbial dumpster fire (at least in North America). Work/life balance is non-existent. No one was happy to be working there - most colleagues I knew were looking for employment elsewhere or hated their job. The leadership and c-suite that I interacted with were arrogant (with a few exceptions) and not open to ideas other than their own. I would not recommend InMobi to anyone seeking employment. You can do better no matter your skillset or vocation.

      Too Big to Be this Disorganized

      Feb 3, 2020 - Account Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible WFH, decent PTO, good bucket of sick days, lots of company holidays, plus a couple extra floating holidays. Save these for when you start dreading every day in the office or for when they let you go with minimal severance.

      Cons

      Highly disorganized. Directives change every quarter, and lately every quarter ends with layoffs. Feels like a sinking ship. Company culture strongly favors Indians. Extremely toxic office environment; gossip and backstabbing are encouraged by the management style here. Lip service is given to transparency and positivity, but the reality is that upper management tries to spin every loss into a win and is happy to see the blame for symptomatic issues passed onto individual contributors.

      Phenomenal Culture & talent

      May 29, 2019 - Director - Strategy & Operations in San Francisco, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Very talented founders (its still founder-run) & the 'brilliance' of it trickles down to the nth level. 2. Very open culture & a strong innovation mindset. Despite having over 1200+ employees in across 5 continents, the company has preserved a very native 'customer first / technology later' attitude (which is not native to startups.. where one sees a biased 'tech-first.. customers-later' attitude) 4. Attracts top talent & nurtures your career progression very well. 5. They have a strong 'never-give-up' attitude (believe it) ..that gave both Google, Alibaba & Facebook a run for the money in Mobile adtech market ! 6. Strong customer base & some of the largest platform partnerships globally. If you are looking for a well diversified startup , they did a really good job at the risk diversification.

      Cons

      1. Heavily focused on USA, Asia, China & MEA markets. The EU region is still raw for them. Not a big deal breaker, but affects you if you want to move internally at any point later.
