    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.

    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)

    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.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Motricity is the ability to work in the mobile industry. Mobile is very exciting and changing everyday, which offers interesting business and technology challenges.

    Cons

    Because Motricity's business is driven by a few, large customers, there is a big focus on custom solutions for these clients' short term needs.

    Advice to Management

    Motricity should remember that the most important investment you have is in your people, the intellectual captial, at the company.
