    I worked at MobilityWare full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    CEOs (Jon and Dave) have amazing hearts and great intentions, great location, great perks, great benefits, and wonderful development team, marketing team and employee talent. The head of HR is a very fantastic person. The work-life balance provided is something that I hope doesn't change, it is invaluable! Years ago, I would have had nothing but great things to say about this company! But so much has changed over the...

    Cons

    The company has changed so much that you may not be able to trust the reviews. There are issues with leadership across all disciplines, teams aren't set up for success, the CEO was the heart of the company and since he has (they have ) stepped away there is no heart. The company has lost the culture it used to have and people are hating their jobs and not speaking out here. If you're looking to be fulfilled by your career,...

    Advice to Management

    While you've shifted your focus to money over people, still try to regain the culture that the company has lost: Family, transparency, trust, ownership over product, team comradery, people actually enjoying what they are making (for the most part). Stop stressing your Product Owners out from the top down, they are the guidance of the production and need to be given the help/room to lead their team to the best possible...

    Pros

    Tons of amazing and fun people to work with. The company has a lot of talented employees. Very fun "small teams" atmosphere and culture. Company trips and holidays are pluses.

    Cons

    Leadership. C-level has tendency to throw teams under the bus and play the blame game. Quarterly reviews are opportunities for us to show CEO our progress, but we're always pressured to "stick to the story" and misrepresent our goals and learnings. This always leads to confused communication and missed targets and teams are blamed. Very little faith in leadership's knowledge in running the business. Also leadership often...

    Review leadership team with fine comb. Create a safe environment for employees to voice their candid feedback on upper management.

    Pros

    Good culture, good work environment, pay is good for a gaming company, lots of perks. Great for career growth/learning new skills

    Cons

    Not enough emphasis on sharing tech. Games are broken up into too many teams for size of company. Some progress toward fixing this recently, but execution is very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate game teams and tech.

      Pros

      Has good reviews... but a truth nobody is commenting about.

      Cons

      The salaries they offer are low for an expensive market.

      Advice to Management

      Cut down on the employee trips and catered food and snacks and put it towards better salaries.

      I have been working at MobilityWare full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I joined MobilityWare approximately two years ago based on a recommendation from a previous coworker. I hesitantly applied as I knew very little about the company and was not experienced in mobile gaming, my expertise was in AAA console games and PC MMOs. I was nervous at first, but the employees around me were extremely welcoming and spent time getting to know me and help educate me on the differences with what I...

      Cons

      It's hard to find real cons with the company. I've been places where we didn't get paid, worked crazy overtime, all sorts of issues and I don't see any of those here. There were some temporary growing pains as the company increased in size quite a bit over the past few years, but overall the vast majority of the hires have been fantastic people who find their groove and work hard. Management even goes out of their...

      Advice to Management

      Please continue to listen to employees, you've been building something great here and I expect it will continue as the years go on. I never knew I'd like this job so much but I have grown very attached to it and my team, and I have management to thank for the opportunities to grow in my career.

      Pros

      They have a reasonable benefits package. A place to hide and collect a paycheck for a while.

      Cons

      Company depends on success from one or two clients. Nepotism and cronyism in the upper management. Very 1950's attitudes. Leadership lacks direction, and ability to lead or innovate. Company culture is very poor or perhaps "poisonous", so employees and middle management are ignored, not allowed to contribute to helping the company succeed (just given marching orders). Leaders appear to make business decisions based...

      Pros

      - The company has a heart. Two hearts actually, John & Dave. They are humble, strategic and genuinely have good intentions. This is felt by the entire staff and I hope they continue to be a part of the day to day company leadership. - The company is in it for longevity. I've never had a conversation, or got a sense, they're looking for an exit. This is heartening for the staff as you know they're willing to invest in...

      Cons

      - Leadership is often seen to not be demonstrating the espoused company values. Providing transparency at All Hands isn't helpful when the general feeling from the staff is that we're getting a watered down version of what's actually going on. For instance, there was no engineering representation in the studio restructuring discussions. There wasn't a single engineering leader on the core restructuring team, so engineering...

      Don't act in a reactionary way, you don't need to refactor the studio every 3 months. Let product owners manage their people.

      I worked at MobilityWare

      Pros

      MobilityWare's culture is unbelievably. Never have I worked in a location where the owners of the company would sit down with you and talk about topics outside of work. The staff is incredible and upper management is fantastic!!! Loved the work that I did at MobilityWare and do miss the people, culture and my boss very much!!!

      Cons

      None that I have seen!!

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work!!!
