    I worked at mFoundry full-time

    Pros

    They encouraged a casual, comfortable place to work. You were able to share your opinions and were not being asked to work 80 hours a week. Fun environment with foosball, great snacks, drinks, happy hours, etc.

    Cons

    Wasn't a super collaborative environment on some teams. You'd meet, get your assignment, then work with your head down for most of the day.

    Advice to Management

    You cared about people and it showed. Don't stop doing that. Keep innovating and keep people at the center of it all.

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

    Pros

    Innovative product, mobile banking, built a solid business via partnering with other financial services firms, as channel partners.

    Cons

    Executive management very insular... the staff always felt that the execs were planning things in secret. Communication could have been more frequent and short meetings vs ad-hoc all hands meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Create an open culture. Its ok to admit you don't know the answer to something. Create org structure that promotes good communication, and keep it as flat as possible.

    I worked at mFoundry full-time

    Pros

    mFoundry did an amazing job recruiting and retaining top-notch talent. The senior leadership team worked incredibly well together, witch each executive having a perfectly-balanced set of skills that complemented the group as a whole. mFoundry provided generous compensation and benefits, and management seemed to genuinely care about the satisfaction of all its employees.

    Cons

    The company was ultimately acquired by FIS (another great organization). mFoundry could have grown 30x the size it was when it sold - and it had the right team in place to make it happen. A successful exit is hardly a con, but it began a new era in the company's evolution - the only con is that it achieved its goals.

    Advice to Management

    Get the band back together in five years and start another company together. For those considering working for mFoundry under FIS leadership, you'll find rewarding career opportunities with a company that continues to grow and prosper in all areas of the financial information space.

    Pros

    Fun culture
    A great group of people who don't take themselves too seriously, but care about the work they do
    Challenging work
    Collaborative environment
    Interesting business models
    Opportunities to work with interesting partners

    Cons

    Before the acquisition, there was a lot of work for each person to do. Almost too much to handle
    Before the acquisition, decision making ability was held by a few key individuals at the top
    Now part of a huge company

    Pros

    "Startup feel" that involves beer, candy, and extremely casual dress. The mobile sphere is interesting.

    Cons

    Work is repetitive, and after understanding your work, it's hard to find new opportunities to learn. The products the company creates are very specific, and borderline proprietary. It's hard to feel that your work is 'useful' for your career; which as a entry/mid-level developer, is a hard pill to swallow.

    There's little feedback from seniors, management, and you'll need to be very persistent to get feedback and try to grow your career.

    The pay isn't great, but if you don't mind mindless work, a younger environment, and peanut butter pretzels, it can be a decent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a training program to new employees, frequent feedback, and establish a review that includes a standardized growth plan.

    Pros

    The people are amazing and friendly. Very laid back and there to get a job done.

    Cons

    Salary is below average. Money is why we work for companies like this, and the more money made in salary the better satisfaction we get from our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Give employee's more reason to fel they don't need to look for other employment.

    Pros

    Company is doing well, a leader in its particular business sector.

    Cons

    Two houses: product and client services

    Product: Nice team, but work is rather unchallenging. Looking for a nice/safe job, great place. Looking for challenging technical problems or new development - look elsewhere.

    Client services: Not many are held accountable for anything, except that of the developer. QA and management have a pass on missing specifications and everything is dumped/blamed on the engineer and hence hi turnover in such positions. Development is non-existent and is now a support organization. Management is now trying to spin motivational slogans into performance reviews. The way some developers are treated borderline on abuse.
