    I worked at InMobi full-time

    Pros

    If you are new to the design field this company can provide a space for you to flex your creative muscles. You will learn about advertising, corporate politics, and what type of leader you want to be. You will work in Marketing, with a global design team in India.

    Cons

    If you have experience as a designer, this company is not for you. This is not a design focused company. Design is not respected or appreciated. Your voice will not be heard. Work life balance is not existent. Most of the people you will meet lack communication skills, leadership, trust and the ability to take responsibility. This company will not invest in you. Proceed with caution.

    I have been working at InMobi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel.. That is about it.

    Cons

    No one believes in the product, but mostly, the saddest thing is they have a HR Manager sitting out of North America that doesn't do a thing, gets overpaid and adds nothing to the company but politics and mind numbing advice that doesn't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate HR - it is not necessary out of North America unless there is someone else out there who knows how to do the job properly.

    Pros

    1. Freedom to work on your own.

    1. The top management should be more vocal with the company's future prospects with its employees.

    I worked at InMobi full-time

    Pros

    Truly entrepreneurial. Great data sciences team. A rare chance to learn everything about ad tech and wear many hats as the company is still independent.

    Cons

    Incredibly short-term and sales-driven strategic drive. Business intelligence is still in a very pre-mature stage and undervalues marketing as a market-expansion / brand awareness / revenue driver.

    Advice to Management

    Think more long term or the business will shrink. Some SVPs / VPs are overrated: not good leaders, not delivering results and unnecessarily acting as queens / kings.

  8. "Great alumni"

    Workaholism encouraged in place of meaningful goals.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    + Most of the people who work here are incredibly smart/talented and a joy to hang out with even after work hours.
    + The perks are nice - free lunch, standard 9-5 workday, happy hours

    Cons

    - Most of middle management should have been fired years ago. They were hired early on and feel the need to overcompensate for their shortcomings by throwing team members under the bus and take credit for others' work to ensure job security.
    - Poor execution on innovative products with high potential
    - The executive team/founders lacks leadership and people skills. InMobi continues to benchmark their success off Indian companies rather than measure themselves against the standards set by companies in SV.
    - Top heavy organization with too many decision makers and too few people to actually execute.

    I worked at InMobi full-time

    Pros

    A couple of the employees were cool, but other than that I can not think of any positives.

    Cons

    India based company.

    Advice to Management

    Change everything you do and treat your employees with respect.
