    I have been working at MobileIron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great market position, really because the competition is all over the map, MI is focused on the real customer problems and we are executing. Incredible team of really smart people with great attitudes and low ego, which makes for a collaborative environment. The transformation from the team that took the company public to the team that can lead a public company is complete. There is an incredible opportunity to capitalize on.

    Cons

    Continual evolution, better known as change. Your job, manager, or responsibilities may change over night. Some folks don't like that.
    Can't wait to move into the new building, the current building is dated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide transparency to the entire company. Focus on innovation across all groups in the company. Seize the opportunity, and don't be bashful about going after competition, we have a better product and vision.

    Continue to empower employees and promote from within. Stay on course to take MobileIron to the next level

    Pros

    The management team and all the employees have a strong vision for where they want to take the company, which is providing a critical service to manage and secure corporate data on mobile devices. MobileIron has a very impressive list of marquee customers around the world.

    Cons

    Execution has been a bit uneven in the past, but concrete steps have been taken to improve the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on continually improving the products to best serve the customers. Implement a 401k matching program as soon as practical.

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

    Pros

    MDM is still a hot domain looking at apple, google and MSFT aggressively pushing for mobile for enterprise. MobileIron has a clean product that solves todays problem for enterprise.
    Its true that quite a few people left but that happens in any growing company which changes mgmt team and such. Lots of scope and oppurtunities for improvement in terms of writing scalable software if we just focus on that right set of problems.

    Despite competing with big guns, I think we solve customers problems and thats keeping us afloat.

    Ya, free food most days, unlimited alchohol, mgmt tries to push for culture etc

    Cons

    Culture is something that comes top down. I think more than the looks, we need more team events, social collaborations etc. Initially Mgmt team looked less caring but they are taking the company in right direction.
    New initiatives are moving slower. We need to push for innovation that could get us the edge with our competitors

    Advice to Management

    * Work faster on new initiatives
    * Team events to improve culture
    * add people to teams that slowing our growth (for e.g., QA)
