    I worked at InMobi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Good ideas and initiatives 2. Flexible and employee friendly system 3. Global atmosphere with people from good academic and corporate backgrounds 4. Great food and gift goodies

    Cons

    1. Poor middle management resulting in attrition of good employees 2. Favoritism and politics resulting in more power in the hands of a few corrupt people 3. Although almost everyone in the company knows and acknowledges what needs to be improved but things never get done

    Advice to Management

    Need to make your ideas of the company culture a reality. There are a lot of loose ends that are to be tied up before launching/ implementing new ideas. Some internal cleansing of the personnel is necessary before the company bleeds out to death.

    Pros

    Flexible timing. Food. Work Life Balance.

    Cons

    1 . Very unethical company and especially the top management. Earlier they had promised that those who will stay in Inmobi from 2014 to 2016, you will get a car but they didn't give. The CEO gave some stupid reason and told the company will give the money in next 2 years divided equally in 8 installments. But there is a catch that if you leave in between, you wont get the money. So essentially they converted 3 years retention bonus to 5 years retention bonus. 2. No Transparency: Since last 2 years they are delaying the appraisals from January to April. We don't get any official communication or reason for delay whatsoever. 3. Good people are leaving since there is no clarity of work and people are not believing the company's idea any more. 4. Our beloved CEO has found a mantra to make the company profitable which is A-B, where A is revenue and B is running cost. Instead of increasing A, they are only focused on decreasing B, and in order to do so they are letting good people go. 5. Arrogant and undeserving middle management: At Inmobi, they is a great parity issue. You can find engineering managers with overall 7 years or less experience. Anyone can become EM, architect easily.

    - Amazing CEO - Great colleagues - One of the best culture to offer

    - A bit of unclarity in the product vision - Clueless Middle management

    Advice to Management

    - What your designation is called is not important. If you focus on company's core value you would be far more effective

    Pros

    Perks: Compensation, food, flexible timing, opportunity to work with young talent. Intelligent, hardworking, passionate CEO. Great marketing and sales team(not so in recent times).

    Cons

    Insecure, incompetent middle management(same problem since 6 years but, ever-increasing). From more than a year leadership has gone for the toss. Since the day company started advertising about Miip, they are just about marketing, no innovation happened after that. Technology leadership is almost missing since SVP-Technology has left. Since the day lost almost all good architects and tech leaders and remaining people are just running behind filling empty seats. It's a dirty musical chair. Technology is at least 2-3years behind compared to competitors. Promotions here are as frequent as Central mall end of season sale, never-ending and no meaning. HR department is no different, once it was making some sense, from couple of years they are just concentrating on BP part of HRBP Product management is busy in maintaining the products as there is no scope for new. Marketing team- Only its work is apparent(Good fantasy writers though)

    Advice to Management

    Spend more on people and product not on marketing. Cut through the lies/hypes given by middle management, bring the accountability. Try to retain good talents, encourage them, they will do the wonder for you. Do not let the great ship you have built sink by selfish lobbyist managers, build great products and make India proud.

    Middle management can't deal with the brilliance they hire. Its an insecured lot of intellectual people

    Advice to Management

    Solve for the middle management who favors the "not-so-smart" because it doesn't hurt their ego

    Pros

    A very good employee first company. Great life work balance. Free food. Senior Management is super. Appraisal and hike are really good.

    Cons

    Middle management is not good. No onsite opportunities. Team outings are very less. 'People leave managers not companies' . Compensation & Benefits are based on Brands like IIT, IIM, ISB, Google, Microsoft etc. Not based on skills, Experience or Performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep this good work. Middle management should be improved. Spend money where needed and cut cost which is not useful. Compensation & Benefits should be based on Skills, Experience and Performance. should not be based on Brands.

    I worked at InMobi

    Pros

    Company's best part is food and fridays.....It was good a great place to work a year back.

    Cons

    Middle management is horrible,the manager criticises the employee...Pull out work. The managers can work from home but the team cant.

    Advice to Management

    I request the company if you are making someone a manager make sure they have etiquette's to speak to an employee or write an email.A manager can be a role model for someone,a hope or a mentor. Dont make it a horrifying experience. Atleast HR's can be non-partial.
