    I worked at Motricity (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues
    Good place to start a career; Lots of opportunities to grow and learn (wear many hats)
    Managers and director-level management were very sharp and talented
    Ability to gain practical experience

    Cons

    Poorly managed by executives; unclear business direction
    Regular layoffs/down-sizing
    Workload did not always match title
    Disconnect between contributors and executive management

    Advice to Management

    Inability to pick a direction and move forward with a single business strategy kept the business floundering and spinning in circles. Talented staff were trying to keep up with ever-changing direction.

    Get in touch with reality.

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

    Pros

    The majority of management was located on the east coast and they were very understanding and flexible to work with the time difference.

    Cons

    It was difficult to work on assignments when the majority of the team was on a 3 hour time difference. There were about 2 overlapping hours where all members were in the office and not at lunch. The senior management (2007-2010) showed very little promise beyond basic sales and hype-filled presentations.


  5. "Great, but unstable"

    Pros

    Great team dynamics with a strong focus on morale and enjoyable working environment.

    Cons

    Seemingly endless mergers and acquisitions leading to a constant worry regarding redundancies and layoffs. It seems as though nearly every month there were layoffs in the 3 years I was there.

    Also, very little professional development, (ie: goals, career track discussion, etc)


  6. "Company out of business"

    I have been working at Motricity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No pros - bad company

    Cons

    There are many, namely an outdated business model and huge debt. The management was clueless

    Advice to Management

    They need to communicate more with their staff

    I worked at Motricity full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. A lot of talented co-workers that knew how to work as a Team and help each other out.

    Cons

    Company failed to innovate with a new platform and/or services for an International audience. Management failed to steer the ship in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Research your demographic before taking an old product Internationally. People in the US are much more likely to spend money on entertainment than those abroad.
