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

    Pros

    location is good.
    product is decent

    Cons

    New engineering management treat you like slaves. Only slides and no delivery
    Poor decision making by top management.
    Product strategy keeps changing and so is top management

    I joined 10 months back and realized it was a poor decision to join this company. Stay away and find something better

    Advice to Management

    hire some good leaders not just managers

    Pros

    Nice facilities. It looks professional but that's about it. Looks can be deceiving and its best to talk to others before joining to get the real down low on what is going on with the company.

    Cons

    Lots of bullying by the one dept you think is your trusted advisor on personnel issues.
    Management continues to be unstable.
    It's one thing to tell vendors to eat their own dog food but when it comes to us.... well.....

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

    Pros

    - Free food
    - Located in Mountain View
    - Plenty of restaurants in nearby Castro St
    - Snack selection is good
    - Coffee is ok if you like Nespresso/Philz
    - Laptop of your choice (Mac, Windows)
    - Mobile first organization

    Cons

    Outside of food and drinks, this company is pathetic. If you care even a little bit about your career, then stay away. The industry is dominated by giants like Microsoft and VMWare. This company doesn't have the resources to compete.

    The company's strategy is to move to Cloud. But the Cloud engineering and delivery teams are a bunch of incompetent losers. They cannot get anything done. And worse, they have missed several deployment deadlines. And worst of all, the size of these teams continues to grow at the expense of other higher performing teams such as the on premise group. The Client engineering and QA are another incompetent bunch. They ship software loaded with bugs.

    It's shocking how they continue to remain in the Gartner's MQ as a leader. Microsoft is increasingly swaying customers away. It'll be hard for this company to sustain itself longer term.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp Cloud and Client engineering. Putting more people on Cloud is counter productive.

    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 (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.

    Nice perks , Nice food, Good location in mountain view. good work life balance

    Cons

    No growth and there is a layoff every year and too many politics in the management. Managers are opportunist in laying off people they don't like.
