    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Irvine, CA

    I worked at InMobi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company provides good benefit including 401k match, 20 days of PTO and provided lunch everyday

    Cons

    Top level product decision is usually conflicting, one day we are asked to implement feature A the next day we are asked to implement feature B that has to revoke some part of feature A. This ultimately result huge setback on product deadline and follow by big layoff

    I worked at InMobi full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I worked at InMobi full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I worked at InMobi full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Pros

    Free lunch everyday. Freedom to come and go as long as you do your job.

    Cons

    Terrible management that isn't sure where they are headed. Technology is far behind their competitors. Trying to re-invent themselves as an "Enterprise SaaS" company but doesn't have enterprise level software. Only hope for InMobi at this point is to get bought out or this ship will be another "unicorn" that eats it.

    I have been working at InMobi full-time for less than a year

    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.

    Pros

    People and free food.

    Cons

    The products don't work, management is poor, no culture - it feels like an "us vs. them" culture with Indians vs. any other race/nationality. No respect for employees.
