    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at MobileAware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    new company means new opportunities. But no strategy in the company and always on fire with the development of a new product. Lot of people changes and responsibilities.

    Cons

    no product yet, still from last 2-3 years on development. Very bad delivery performance according to customers experience and lost some customer in the last 2 years...

    Advice to Management

    Get a new product to sell. Improve software quality and speed to deliver.

    Thank you for the comments. MobileAware has now been acquired by AwareX. The former CEO and some prior management team members have not been retained by the new company. Strategy is to be a product company, deploy fast, deliver low TCO, high consumer satisfaction for CSP's

    I worked at MobileAware

    Pros

    Startup-ish environment, fairly relaxed atmosphere in the office, projects with instant large exposure (millions of users since the apps are pushed by telecoms to all their customers)

    Cons

    Projects are over-sold on timelines/deliverables (ie sales promises to deliver faster then humanly possible) and understaffed (to even get close to meeting the deadlines)

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with sales. Follow stricter guidelines for selling deadlines. Hire less yes-men.

    I worked at MobileAware

    Pros

    Company's experienced a few up and downs in last years, and has been acquired by visionary angel investor. Company's spirited management team is convinced in turning things around, and generate value to customers. MobileAware has improved its talent acquisition approach, and are working on career development for all its employees.

    Cons

    Negative sentiment analysis from previous customers.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to rethink data approach to integrate to core applications.

    Pros

    Neat product to work on. Some good people there

    Cons

    No one has enough experience leading a team. Can't focus on anything well enough to get a product out the door. No one knows how to handle talking to clients, always over promising and under delivering.
