    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.

    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.
