    Continue recent efforts to improve communication.

    Navigating pre-existing and sometimes tricky office politics.

    Pros

    Overall the company is good, take care of good employees , value the people. Try to make the atmosphere more friendly . They are open to the ideas.

    Cons

    They need to adjust the good employees better to keep them stay and not leave! Also I would like to add that the nature of telecom is the way that at one stage they need lots of people and when the project moves to different stage they might release them. So lay offs is the nature of telecom not the negative point for Mobilitie

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on motivating people!

    Pros

    The growing pains of embarking on an unprecedented network buildout are subsiding. Although it took time and the loss of some good employees, Mobilitie’s knowledge efficiencies and market presence are finally being realized by both clients and competitors. To be successful here, you have to love what you do and consider the company as one team working towards a mutual goal. Be willing to work above what is expected so that you can learn and understand the responsibilities of your reporting manager and other departments and find ways to assist or contribute- this is a way to move up. Length of employment is less of a factor than knowledge, contribution, work ethic, and production. Leadership is now more open to change and recommendations than before. If you’ve been in the industry and can understand project fluctuations, I think you’ll realize how great Mobilitie’s culture really is and the opportunities they offer. A lot of the complaints and unmet expectations come from entitled former/current employees with no previous work experience, no industry background, or no initiative to learn more and work harder.

    Cons

    Some departments need additional industry training and better tracking software. There are still some employees that could better listen to advice coming from those with industry and market experience. Accountability needs to improve- don’t be so quick to blame or write up people who speak up against a process that isn’t working, even if it shows a lack of knowledge on your part. No one knows or can do everything, but that’s why the word “teamwork” exists. Support and encourage your entire team and not just the ones that agree with everything you say. You risk an entire department failing that way.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path of hiring and listening to those with industry knowledge and experience.


  5. "Construction Project Coordinator"

    Pros

    Travel, Networking, Salary, Freedom, Knowledge Growth. Great opportunity to grow within the company and industry if truly wanting to.

    Cons

    Paying for travel then getting reimbursed. Must have money in your bank

    Advice to Management

    Being at some venues to see what their systems look like as the final product. Some sales people might not know what all goes into some venues and how other teams have to work with what they have and how it effects the project.

    Pros

    By far the best corporate culture I’ve ever experienced. A place where people are an investment to leadership and all ideas and new approaches are considered and implemented.

    Cons

    I think all companies have challenges and in the nature of this industry, the challenges we experience as a company are no different than any other in telecom.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a fine job.

    I worked at Mobilitie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Nice coworkers. Nice office and location

    Cons

    Poor management. No clear path for progression, and promotions not alway given to deserving parties. No clear process established for the primary part of their business. Poor communication between manegement, middle manegement, and employees.

    HR is non-existant, workload expected was unreasonable and overtime was cut. Management's poor planning and process meant deadlines and benchmarks weren't een close to being met, and they focused more on being able to place blame elsewhere as justification than to improve internal processes and cut people who were detrimental to progress.

    Pros

    I've been here less than a year and I haven't seen any pros other than the free snacks.

    Cons

    Honestly, I wish I had never left my former company. No processes, no direction, no leadership and worst of all a horrible culture. Middle management doesn't know how to communicate direction or tasks. If you're looking for a short term gig this is the place. If you're looking for something long term wait for another offer and save yourself the heartache.

    Advice to Management

    Read all the negative reviews and make a change.
