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

    Pros

    The new CEO has brought great focus and execution to the company. Q4 2017 was the biggest in the companies history. Stock price has responded well and the company is positioned well for continued success in 2018. This is a great time to join as the momentum is exciting. The company has made a great investment in an awesome new office in Bangalore.

    Cons

    No major ones at this time - we just need to keep executing and sticking to the plan. New office in Bangalore was sorely needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing and pushing the clear vision and priorities. The company is rallying around as a team again and please keep the communication channels open as we move ahead. We are all behind you and excited for more positive results and success in the months ahead.

    Pros

    Down to earth culture, easy to work across the company to meet customer needs.
    Collegial environment and culture.
    New CEO is focused and disciplined and committed to achieving improvements - already seeing results.
    Awesome peer recognition program.
    Good mix of new employees with veterans who have been here from early days.
    Great space to be in -- mobile, security, networking, cloud.
    Great food perks, and global facilities have really improved.
    Massively under-valued stock price - lots of upside on the horizon.

    Cons

    Moving to cloud and to cloud security takes a lot of effort. Some employees stuck in old ways and not open to change. Not that big of a deal, but we all need to unite on the future direction. Not time for negativity or complaining.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused and disciplined on key objectives. Keep communicating and driving the changes needed to increase our value.

    I have been working at MobileIron full-time

    Pros

    New building is OK.
    Decent food. Benefits are OK.
    Marketing materials are good and marketing presentations are not bad.
    Good customer base (dwindling but still pretty good).

    Cons

    Eng: For over 2 years, we have had pretty dismal leadership at all levels. Our products are not aligned with customer expectations and not converged. We just replaced our Engineering top leadership but that was too little, too late as we have lost many solid engineers.

    HR: This organization is SO poorly run it's embarrassing to be associated with them. Harassment runs rampant in the company and retaliation is the only motivation by HR. Senior HR definitely needs to be replaced by a more seasoned, experienced and thoughtful team. Rather than resolve issues they focus on removing negative reviews that bring light to issues.

    Business: Public information: Missed 14 quarters in a row.... 3 CEO's in the past 1.5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Eng leadership change (mostly done).
    HR leadership change (NEEDS to be done).

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

    Pros

    -Unlimited PTO
    -Catered food on Tuesdays
    -Great Product w/ big name partnerships
    -Ideal location for HQ office

    Cons

    New SVP of WW Sales expects you to be great, but my understanding is that the sales team has been wronged by leadership multiple times with broken promises. This in turn has led to an exodus of seasoned and veteran people with great potential to keep the sales org moving at full pace. What you put it in is what you get out in management here at MobileIron, and having gone through a good amount of leadership figures says a lot. Much work to do to get the sales team back up and running again.
    -Department silos are real here
    -Communication between leadership and employees isn't so great
    -Culture is very lackluster. Multiple changes in leadership have eroded what made MobileIron feel like a community.
    -The product is great and when stacked up against most big player competing products, its superior. However, because we are the little guys on the block, its hard to sell it when competition can easily manipulate pricing.

    Great atmosphere and great people. Everyone is friendly and willing to help. You will never go hungry! Unlimited food and snacks in the kitchen.

    Unlimited food and snacks in the kitchen lol. Be careful not to let yourself go. Other than that I can't think of any cons.
