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

    Pros

    Free company vacations, flexibility, unlimited time off (but don't get sick and take too much or they will find a different reason to let you go), Card games are successful.

    Cons

    They got lucky with being the first Solitaire game on phones, but have been squandering away that success with failed projects ever since. The CEO is mostly vacationing and only shows up once or twice every few weeks with crazy ideas and changes of directions.

    Current Employee - Legal 

    I have been working at MobilityWare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have been with MobilityWare for many years. I have seen it grow from a company of 30-something people to one with almost 200. In that entire time, MobilityWare has never lost sight of the fact that it's the people who make the company what it is, and the company's success or failure depends on it. With that in mind, MobilityWare has always put more effort and foresight into recruiting/hiring than any other place I have worked. Once here, employees are treated to awesome perks, but more than that they are afforded flexibility, autonomy, and recognition.

    Cons

    As a company that grows and changes a lot, it can be challenging to take in all the changes that happen and the frequency with which they do. This is definitely not a place for someone who prefers a static, stable atmosphere.

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

    Pros

    • Great culture, pretty chill work environment (sometimes too chill). • Compensation is fantastic, very competitive compared to my last jobs within the industry. • Amazing perks, ranging from snacks, free food Fridays, and even a yearly company trip which includes your +1! • Work/Life balance is extremely important to the executive team -- there is hardly ever 'crunch'. • Lots of fun products to work on. • The company is always looking ways to improve their current product line up and actively introducing new genres under their development belt.

    Cons

    • No clear career growth path for Producers as managers have changed 3 times since I've joined. • Laid back environment can sometimes foster bad habits or work ethics for current & new employees.

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

    Pros

    - Incredible company culture- they genuinely care about their employees - Amazing co-workers - Stable business model and long track record of success - Numerous opportunities for growth and advancement - Orange County is beautiful and affords employees a more well rounded lifestyle (you don't usually sit in traffic half the day)

    Cons

    - While you get to work with some interesting partners, some may find that the game titles themselves veer towards a more old-school, traditional style of gameplay (card, puzzle, and casino style games)

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

    Pros

    Family friendly environment and a great culture that makes you feel welcome. Great perks and work-life balance. A strong line up of consistently successful products. Good opportunity for growth and an appreciation for people that step up to develop new skills. Really great people, love the team I'm on. Big changes to leadership shortly after I started gave a pretty good impression for the direction of the company.

    Cons

    Not much... It's hard to tell if leadership is fully invested in the new projects that are part of the companies growth.

    I worked at MobilityWare

    Pros

    Overall laid back atmosphere and great work life balance Solid benefits Great snacks in the kitchen Steady and strong core products that are reliable, consistent revenue generators Some teams are really great There are lots of gaps to fill in the organization, which can be bad and good. If you really want to grow your title or skills, this can be a good place to do so

    Cons

    Products are not exiting, and you could feel that the teams were not enthused by the products they were working on Though there are many talented and intelligent people here, one got the sense that many people here just couldn't hack it elsewhere. Maybe it's the laid-back attitude, but it felt like the majority of people weren't up to the level of competency or professionalism you'd expect from a modern company, and didn't care to grow in their positions. They didn't track what was happening in the industry, and the company felt like it was still living in 2008, when the first solitaire launched. The industry has left them in the dust There are some flat out weird people. Lots of man-children here (some good ones too, of course)
