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

    Pros

    Great market position, really because the competition is all over the map, MI is focused on the real customer problems and we are executing. Incredible team of really smart people with great attitudes and low ego, which makes for a collaborative environment. The transformation from the team that took the company public to the team that can lead a public company is complete. There is an incredible opportunity to capitalize on.

    Cons

    Continual evolution, better known as change. Your job, manager, or responsibilities may change over night. Some folks don't like that.
    Can't wait to move into the new building, the current building is dated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide transparency to the entire company. Focus on innovation across all groups in the company. Seize the opportunity, and don't be bashful about going after competition, we have a better product and vision.

    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

    Smart and fun people, free snacks and mobile is still hot.

    Cons

    Management is too occupied with the politics that they are not being effective. Engineering and HR need an overhaul. So much turnover in engineering we are slowing way down.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately I think it is too late.

    Pros

    smart people, free food, great space

    Cons

    HR and Engineering failing our company. HR creating politics and bad blood. Engineering leader has no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Just look at the turn over in Engineering and the the dislike for HR. They are killing us! Outward facing execs very effective. Does not include new CEO.

    Pros

    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.

    Smart people, free food and interesting projects

    Cons

    Not focused any longer. Trying to do too much and not focusing on the right things.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on executing on things that make sense not politics. Problems in engineering needs looking into too much turnover and things are bad.

    I worked at MobileIron full-time

    Pros

    Stocked kitchen. Marketing group is top notch. Marketing materials are a step above competitors. Good customer base but slowly eroding. Benefits are OK but getting pricier as the rates go higher.

    Cons

    Executive leadership is failing. On it’s 3rd CEO in less than 2 years. Engineering and HR departments have a very low respect factor which translates to a poorly supported product. Many people leaving and no backfill reqs are being approved. A majority of the people who helped propel the company forward and keep costs low have all been either pushed out by HR or quit to find better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Sell

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.
