    I worked at mobiManage full-time

    Pros

    -Talented designers and developers (when not being directed by CEO). -Great motivation and relationship with designers and developers, they watch out for one another. -Opportunity to work with wonderful customers.

    Cons

    -OVER WORKS TEAM. This is the biggest issue. The team is being cut down to like 10 people. There was so much work and support, everything was high priority. Within the day or week a bunch of things were assigned to a single person. Deadlines were missed, work was sloppy, stress was high. What does it tell you when you have to explain to the CEO that if you work on one thing, obviously you lose time with another item.... Honestly, its as if this explanation is an excuse - made no sense. -No processes in place for devs/designers/PM/Support, or anything. Had to figure it out through trial and error. Somewhat of a "process" was starting to be worked on. -There were talented people on the team that had promising ideas and knowledge, but management (if you can even use that word) is stuck in old ways and does not allow the company or team to grow. -Absolutely no training. Because there was no process the "training" was so minimal. If it were not for the other team members, when they had time to take a breath, I would not know what to do. Had to learn a lot on my own. -When you do not know about a topic and you have people on your team that have experience with the topic, listen to them! Their knowledge is ignored, it's almost as if knowing more than the CEO is seen as a threat instead of a weapon. -Gets rid of experienced people because of the point above, then claim "they don't understand what we are trying to do" - as if you know. -Management does not understand any job and yet directs the team. -CEO makes contradicting decisions consistently based on what he believes is best. Says one thing one day, then claims something else another day. Even if it is in one of the many sad, poorly written emails. When that decisions does not work out because of obvios reasons, blames the team. -Has unrealistic expectations. Just because we don't own a company does not mean we do not understand that to make a good product for the first time you need time. Even if you have done it a few times, they still have major issues so they haven't really been done right! -Blows through the nitty gritty process of understanding a product up front because wants everything done fast and half the time. This causes team to develop a low quality product and throws the "you need to think things through" in our faces. -Products are not properly developed. Issues left and right. There is no quality control. Stems from not understanding the product. Selling products they don't even have and expect to develop it within a ridiculous timeline. Yes, a short timeline attracts customer BUT not when you do not have a solid product to begin with. Some common sense please. -Over promises to customers, and really under delivers past the due date. Poor team starts all projects late and is told to work extra to catch up. -Definitely underpaid. The amount of time and work you are required to do, is not worth it. No such thing as over time. This makes it attractive to hire young employees. The young members now don't have something to compare this to, so they think this work style is OK. They know the wrongs of this place, but are told by management this is how it is anywhere else. Not at all true!! -The opportunity to work and learn in different departments sounds promising, but not here. Not when management has no clue nor takes guidance. Terrible. -If you don't finish the high amount of work on your list for the day or week, you are immediately told to work extra hours. That may not be a problem for some, but when you get nothing in return...how much can a person take? -Benefits. What benefits? NONE. AT. ALL. Come on, throw your employees a bone. -Toxic environment. No culture. It was stress non-stop. For you, for the team. Walking into the office in the morning was dreadful! Leaving at the end of the day was like breaking out of jail, fear you would get caught (because more work was asked of you) and pure joy to be free. -Work/life balance: No need to go into detail, live to work is all you need to know. -People start hopeful and excited, but within a week (if you are lucky) you know you made a mistake. Red flags like no other. Looking back, it makes me laugh. Seriously, stay away. You can read all the reviews and see that this is a common thing. No positivity. Feel so bad for the customers.

    I worked at mobiManage full-time

    Pros

    The pros of working here are limited. One is when you are eventually let go or decide to move on. I was so ashamed of working here that I didn't even put it on my resume or CV.

    Cons

    The label narcissist is used loosely these days, typically to indicate anyone who is vain and selfish, but the true personality disorder and its traits run much deeper, and carry long-term debilitating effects for those involved with such people. This is the best way to summarize Mobimanage, however. If you have worked here, you will likely feel more like an object to be used and manipulated in order to meet the... CEO’s unrealistic goals or needs, whether those are real or flat out lies. One eventually realizes the CEO does not value you as a professional and that employees are there because they are very young or just need the money. It is a heart-breaking discovery to eventually realize you have been conned or duped by the CEO to work at Mobimanage. Below I'm offering you a checklist demonstrating the devastating traits of the company and leadership there. 1. When something goes wrong, the CEO blames everyone but himself. 2. CEO refuses to be accountable for his or her bad behavior (ex: screaming, shaming, gas-lighting, drug & alcohol use, etc.) 3. CEO believes he is always right. 4. CEO is unable to tune in to your professional feelings or opinions. 5. Leadership is out of touch with his own feelings and denies them. 6. CEO carries grudges against current and former clients and employees. 7. CEO is unwilling to listen to you and to hear your concerns. 8. CEO is constantly telling you what to do. 9. Overall culture makes you feel “not good enough”. CEO’s constant put-downs causes you to internalize his regular failures. 10. CEO is open that no one is to be friends with each other, especially with him. 11. CEO feels the need to go on and on about how great he is and how pathetic you are. 12. CEO regularly lies about past achievements, to new and current clients and, to new and current employees. 13. CEO manipulates as a management style. 14. CEO tells different people different stories about the same event, spinning the story so that he looks good. 15. Employees protect themselves by not sharing their feelings with anyone. 16. CEO mistrusts everyone, no matter what. 17. Employees are constantly trying to gain CEO’s approval, as the CEO has labeled himself as a current industry leader, although his business is regularly failing and he purchased this company just 4-years ago and lies about his college degrees. 18. CEO spends minimal time with the employee. 19. Family and friends of employees regularly question why the employee is working there because of the negative culture and day-to-day activities. 20. CEO takes advantage of employees by demanding they use their own smart phones and laptops, requiring evening and weekend work regularly. 21. CEO is all about power and control, pursuing power at all costs and ruining the reputation of his employees. 22. CEO is all about image and how things look to others, at all costs. 23. CEO has no value system, no fixed idea of right and wrong for his behavior and often questionable decision making skills. 24. After employees leave, CEO exploits you to better his image, no matter the lie he is making. CEO has inability to calm down whatsoever and sends questionable messages to former employees. 25. When you try to discuss your work issues with CEO, he changes the subject so that you end up talking about his issues. 26. CEO is oddly jealous of everyone and lacks empathy and mindfulness. 27. CEO consistently questions your loyalty if you do not work nights or weekends. 28. CEO only does considerate things for you only when clients are around to witness that good behavior. Behind closed doors he belittles and devalues everyone, even perspective clients. 29. When something difficult happens in your life (for instance, an accident, illness, a divorce in your family or circle of friends), CEO reacts with immediate concern about how it will affect him rather than with concern for you. 30. CEO is overly conscious of what others think. 31. Employees feel used by CEO. 32. CEO is critical and judgmental of everyone. 33. CEO acts as if the world should revolve around him. 34. CEO appears phony to employees and lacks depth of moral character. 35. CEO swings from grandiosity to a depressed mood with in the same hour, often throughout the same day. 36. CEO tries to compete with employees within unrealistic venues, often flashing money and a life of questionable behavior. 37. CEO always has to have things his way, even with clients. CEO of the company has whimsical sense of humor and volatile decision making skills, which changes every week based on their judgement. CEO openly uses illicit drugs and regularly drinks during work day. At best, CEO is a mediocre businessman with inherited family money that he spends haphazardly. Has to fire people because he is out of control with his spending and ability to make quality decisions.

    Advice to Management

    This company is unethical from head to toe. So beware of any career move here. This company will be changing its name due to bad reputation in market and inability to attract new talent.

    Pros

    Pretty cool vision for a company The graphic designers & developers are amazing and very helpful I like the area it's in

    Cons

    -Direction from management is vague, no matter how many questions you may ask, and often ends up with someone being yelled at and accused of "not taking decent enough notes" -Underpaid - this is for the amount of time and energy employees are expected to spend on each project. There were often times I would stay well after 7PM and basically work for free - as overtime payment is non existent (Isn't this... illegal?) -There is absolutely no training when introduced into your new position. I had mentioned in my interview that I had no experience in graphic design, yet was expected to teach myself Photoshop & Illustrator. Thankful for the graphic designers that took time out of their own projects to teach me bits and pieces. -The person before me had already left & I was given a huge stack of unorganized marketing folders, proposals, & previous projects. Again, no training or organization. -Resources aren't capable of handling the amount of work put on your plate - extremely slow and would often restart while in the middle of a project. -Unhealthy environment -Management constantly bickering with each other and putting fault on other employees. -They prey on young adults that are new to the workforce not knowing what to expect. -Opinions and concerns of employees are often overlooked. -Understaffed - let's just say I was the only person in the marketing department and deadlines are unrealistic with the amount of work given to one person. -If you're looking for an opportunity to grow within a company then look elsewhere - raises are rare and hard to find - even if you've been with the company since the start.

    Pros

    - Occasional Happy Hour with co-workers - Great Location - Loved the Design team & Developers (What's left of them)

    Cons

    - The pay is joke! They will try talking you into lower pay by saying you will learn so much and make is seem like this position is so desirable (Don't fall for it). They under pay everyone and tried getting away with not paying over time to their employees for months They have fired people and didn't pay them commission on deals they closed and earned. - The health benefits are horrible - Management is... dysfunctional, they yell and argue constantly. There is no loyalty here and they will dispose of anyone. They also like to throw each other under the bus behind each others backs (Owner & CFO) - Overwork employees - The owner "Doug" talks down to everyone and treats them like they are stupid. - Can't meet deadlines cause they don't have enough help - Toxic environment that starts with the management If you are considering working here, my advice is don't waste your time! You'd be happier some where else.

    You'd think they would see a pattern here, but sadly they see nothing and that is why I wouldn't give any advice. They wouldn't listen anyway... They have lost out on so many good employees and will continue till they see that the problem isn't the employees but they are (OWNER, VP AND CFO)

    Pros

    Company has a vision but does not have the resources, money nor the management skills to get there. Excellent design team and great developers!

    Cons

    - Under staffed. Works employees after hours and on weekends consistently. - Sells products they don't have and scrambles to build what was sold - consistently misses deadlines due to lack of recourses, poor management, poor process in place and over promising products and timelines to customers. - management points fingers to the employees and does not take any blame - over works ALL employees and expects them to... work around the clock and on weekends. Salary employees are not compensated for their overtime in any way. - Sells BS to the employees and customers - timelines are unrealistic and management refuses to listen - management has no boundaries and will call you in the evening and weekend and micro manages every department. - customers consistently complain. Environment here is negative and stressful. - stay away from this company. It's not worth your time. - They will hire you if you are easily controlled - management is referred to as the owner of the company, Doug Ralston.

    Pros

    Great people on the design team, i can honestly tell you that is all there is positive about the company.

    Cons

    This was hands down the worst company i have ever worked for. There is no rhyme or reason to anything at the company. The leadership are tearing apart each other and the company as a whole. I can't remember a single day going into work being excited to show up. Half the company is used and abused out of Mexico. Stay away from this company, save yourself the regret. You will notices dozens and dozens of red flags... straight from the first call all the way to your first day of work. Do not ignore those flags, heed the warnings from all these reviews and worry that you feel from the start.

    Great product that was in front of the mobile web site curve along with a very effective strategic sales methodology that was so good that it actually broke the first phase of the company.

    Cons

    Company is so small that there are only two levels "directors" supposely CEOs, CIOs, COOs and the rest which includes a few programmers/and a few other positions. Environment is toxic-bossy and employees are not value by top management. Huge turnover rate Repetitive product/service errors and unsatisfied customers. These situations have been going on for years, it’s a common thing. Do you own research... over the Internet and see it for yourself, you’ll discover this dates back to 2012 and has been happening over and over. Another proof is that the company name was changed in the last months: Mobimanage > OmniEx > OmniExperience.
