    Pros

    they pay you regularly, novel in that they were among the 1st to do video streaming for mobile devices.

    Cons

    much of the company was propped up by H1's who couldn't wait to get out. Some good people there but sr mgnt in serious need of a proctologist. Sweatshop environment. CEO rarely made it into the office. Three or so big customers kept the place solvent.

    Advice to Management

    try not to be so full of yourselves

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there are very easy to get along with, the diversity and culture of the workplace make it fun.

    Cons

    The business side is spotty, sometimes business is good and other times not so good. Sometimes you end up doing several peoples jobs and not just the position you were hired for.

    Advice to Management

    Consider looking into a new top management team and strategy, as the company goals never seem to be reached. Benefits could also use a little help.

    I worked at MobiTV full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mobitv is a good company with an interesting technology base. Its a company that is small enough that you can make a difference, but big enough to have reasonable benefits and an acceptable work-life balance.

    Cons

    There are structural issues between engineering and operations that hinder the progress of the company. Needed initiatives get punted due to political in-fighting. Engineers are frequently under-utilized because approval for projects is not forthcoming. Video streaming is becoming commodified which reduces the value of the company's product portfolio. Revenues have been declining.

    Advice to Management

    The company could be operated much more efficiently. Under utilized employees should be put to work moving things forward.

    I enjoyed working with the people at MobiTV. Good working environment with a lot of support. Very flexible work hours. Challenging assignments utilizing your skills.

    Cons

    MobiTV has not been successful in finding widespread customers for its excellent products. It utilizes white label products sold through carriers. The carriers take a very long time to make a decision and MobiTV is running out of money.
