    I worked at Mobiquity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chance to work with great creative team in the local office and remotely at satellite offices.

    Knowledgeable team members in development.

    Was able to get more digital platform experience.

    Decent benefits for size of company, some offerings improved as (company) grew.

    Cons

    Mentoring program faded during my time there.

    Could be challenging to coordinate project efforts with dev teams in other time zones.

    Pros

    Senior Devs are amazing and great learning assets
    Breakroom is great!

    Cons

    HR is rude
    Management doesn't know development
    Pay is too low

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more! The pay scale vs cost of living is insanely off.

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

    Pros

    Some truly outstanding stars in Dev and Support.
    Amazing creative team, they do some great work.
    Pay is substandard for entry level in "low cost of living regions" but can be good as long as you are a good negotiator.
    Benefits are decent, standard given the size of the company.
    There is a form of a bonus program.
    Paid six week entry level courses offered.

    Cons

    No constants but change.
    Change the people, change the sales strategy, change the vision, change for changes sake.
    Cronyism, little or no promotion and recognition of internal resources who perform.
    Unstable, positions deleted with no rhyme or reason. Get paid a bonus for outstanding work and find your position deleted two weeks later.
    Bonus program, however it is ambiguous and swayed by feelings and perceptions rather than true or realistic performance and measures. I was paid bonus but other hardworking people constantly overlooked.
    Work load disproportionate to the level of the employee. Entry level developers/quality assurance consistently asked to do the work of a mid level or senior.

    Advice to Management

    Be better. Be consistent in your vision and message.

    I have been working at Mobiquity full-time

    Pros

    Really smart and nice people
    Autonomy, no micro-management, you own your projects
    Lots of different types of projects, you can gain great experience

    Cons

    Lots of upper-level managers for how small the company is
    In most departments, upper management doesn't often connect or communicate well
    Overall culture is lacking

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat at the top & hire more 'do-ers' so you don't have to run projects so thin

    Pros

    1. Flexible work hours
    2. No Corporate BS (dress code, you don't have to be cautious of your language)
    3. If you want to do something in your project you can own it.
    4. The people and work culture is awesome
    5. You would sometimes just go to office so you can see your colleagues

    Cons

    1. Management never has a clear direction
    2. Management will not inform employees of most of the things happening in the project, lack of proper information and feedback.
    3. You can be fired any day just because you accidentally pissed some upper management guy
    4. They are not growing as much you would expect them to grow hence if you are on a project you will be stuck on that project
    5. Very little to No Learning Programs
    6.You can loose your job just because you are on bench
    7. Promises made are not kept even if you have it in Written or Email
    8. Turning into a wanna be big Corporate even though they are no where near that

    Advice to Management

    plan your projects well, you have awesome people who would goto war with you treat them well.
    More transparency is needed what actually the upper management is thinking.
    If a employee is not doing well rather than firing him help him out.

    I have been working at Mobiquity full-time

    Pros

    *Paid training
    *Mostly friendly and open culture
    *Can land interesting projects (somewhat luck/timing-based)
    *Good benefits, stock options

    Cons

    *Culture losing individuality as company grows
    *Upper management seems very disconnected with workforce
    *Volatile staffing, something like 40-50 staff changes in the last few months
    *Pay is below average

    I worked at Mobiquity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brought me in and trained me. Made sure we were ready for the world. Yes, there were the occasional things wrong here and there, but it happens, honestly. Got to deal with different kinds of requirements, client, management, co-workers. All in all, a great experience. Couldn't ask for a better company to start my career with.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seemed to be expected that we work overtime. Could probably use a few more senior devs.

    I worked at Mobiquity full-time

    Pros

    The Board finally woke up, and saw the management team for what it was - bloated, ineffectual, delusional, culturally vapid, trapped in old-white-guy-croanie-stories of yesteryear, and down-right unethical. News that several key management team members were removed is the business equivalent of the Berlin Wall being knocked down, and the statue of Lenin being torn down.

    Cons

    It's a consulting business, so it is hard work. Tough to keep customers happy, tough to work under tight deadlines in a market where India is commoditizing your value, etc. But that isn't about Mobiquity. That is about the market.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the people you hire, in management and beyond, truly reflect the values that matter. And make sure that goes above and beyond just what you like to say during the interview. Make it stick, daily.
