    I have been working at MobileIron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Super collaborative environment from product, ux, and engineering to support, sales, and marketing -- everyone does their best to drive the right decisions and help each other - Solid executive leadership focused on doing the right thing for customers, creating an attractive environment for employees, and delivering financial results to shareholders - Strong product offering, solving important complex problems for the world's largest enterprises... a great place to learn about mobile, security, and now identity

    Cons

    - Same as with most tech companies: there's opportunities everywhere we turn but we can't do it all... we have a lot of tough investment tradeoffs to make

    Pros

    Interesting market and opportunity, device management is used in almost every big company

    Cons

    The company is struggling to grow past the early foothold that it got, and there’s been lots of churn among managers and execs.

    Once a company that valued and invested in employees.

    Now only interested in cheap labor. Top heavy with redundant management and sales staff. Employees fear for their jobs and impending layoffs.

    I worked at MobileIron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    MobileIron has an excellent culture. They are friendly, accessible and work to promote community with weekly all-company lunches, daily dinners for the development teams, and a Women of MobileIron community that has a budget for activities. Mobile device security is an interesting and fun space to work in.

    Cons

    There has been nearly 100% executive turnover in the last 2 years (CEO, CFO, Marketing, Engineering, and Product) so the company has stalled. It was never clear what the strategic direction of the company was. They have a history of multiple rounds of layoffs and being under-resourced.

    Pros

    Product and Marketing are creating a new alignment and strategic vision which is helping the company. Slowly we are becoming known for more of a security company and not just another MDM vendor. More partnerships are happening, support is a stand up team, professional services is awesome, products sold actually work.

    Cons

    Constant fear of getting let go, sales organization including sales engineering, has no real defined leadership, much turnover in sales organization, talented people are leaving, looking for other jobs, or being pushed out and being replaced by "pals" from the old CA. There is confusion in the entire sales organization. There is no desire to retain those who have knowledge and skills relative to the business nor desire to identify those; the desire seems to rip and replace the experts with new hires who think they can do handshake deals with the CISO because of their previous titles and place of work which often backfires.

    Pros

    Marketing and PM are both trending in the right direction and the platform is solid.

    Cons

    What was a fantastic sales culture and sales team has been decimated. Morale's at an all time low and reps, SE's and managers are leaving in droves. Sales leadership at the highest levels isn't trustworthy and cannot be relied upon to help with accounts when needed. I feel like no one has my back as I'm competing with companies that have over $1T in market cap.

    I have been working at MobileIron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The facilities are clean and nice. Unlimited PTO and the flexibility to work remotely without always coming back to HQ is nice.

    Cons

    Previous management from a few years back really knew what they were doing. Human Resources is the source of the issues and is the last management chain that continues to evade dissolution.
