Pros

I found the work to be challenging and stimulation. Was working closely with the core development team on core features and platform ports.

Very talented senior development leaders from CTO down
Fast paced environment
Fun and challenging technology

Cons

Company has to be able to respond quickly, so be prepared to turn on a dime

Advice to Management

I don't really have any advice for management. When I worked for mFoundry it was very much a startup company, and I found (at least externally) that management did an excellent job surfing the inevitable ebb and flow (and occasional breaker) that come with being a startup.

    Pros

    They are in wireless space. Have been hiring young crowd.

    Cons

    Low pay, appraisals are hard to come. Motivating factor is very low. Mundane work. There is lot of competition in this industry from big established companies. Facilities are very poor, there is space crunch in the office.

    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.
