    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)
