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

    Pros

    Great Technology. Strong Partnership with Google. Leading the charge with the next wave of mobile web technology. Lots of career opportunity. The opportunity is huge.

    Cons

    Its been a tough ride for some. The company has had to adapt to its new offering and new strategy of building a partner ecosystem. This is something that needed to happen and of course was not easy. The company is not the same young start that I joined, but that does not have to be a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your guns and be leaders in one field as opposed to run of the mill in lots.

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

    Pros

    There were and are some really great people that work at Mobify. It was one of the best jobs I've ever had...until it wasn't. Benefits/perks are good. The company retreat was a blast!

    Cons

    You've seen half of your staff leave due to poor decision-making and low morale. There was a period of time where it felt like every week several people were leaving the company for better opportunities. It wasn't even addressed at All Hands or anything.

    You have an office that's one one of the most expensive corners of Vancouver, yet it's half empty and depressing.

    Advice to Management

    We all know that some leaders are doing outside projects during working hours. Certain leaders should focus more on saving the company versus coaching executives around the Vancouver community and profiting from it.

    Pros

    - There are lots of aspect that I like about working for Mobify. First and foremost are the people who work at Mobify. These individuals are friendly, supportive, motivating, mentoring, hardworking, and much more. Mobify provides its employees with numerous opportunities for growth and development throughout your time here. The company has strong proven leaders who adapt quickly to change and always like to stay one step ahead. Lastly, the office space is beautiful and in an ideal location which all together makes coming to work enjoyable everyday.

    Cons

    - I really can't think of any Cons about working for Mobify. Mobify is ahead of the market for Progressive Web App (PWA) technology; however, the market for PWAs is only becoming more and more popular which will only benefit Mobify in the long run.

    I worked at Mobify full-time

    Pros

    Great culture. It's really at the core of the company, and it's the main reason people stay working here. By far the best culture I've ever worked in.

    Cons

    The company has drastically shrunk in size over the last few years, with multiple rounds of layoffs.
    The leadership team is really out of their depth. There have been lots of management mistakes that have cost the company dearly. They have one of the most expensive offices in the city, and it's half empty. The founders did a great job at getting a small startup off the ground. But they are definitely not suited to running an enterprise company. Through a very difficult few years, it's surprising that they haven't been replaced yet. This seems to be a common opinion among the team.
