    Pros

    NetMotion has come a long way in the last 2 years under new leadership launching new features/products as well as entering into new markets . Also, moved into nice new office that makes it pleasant to work in. Good environment to work in where management values culture.

    Cons

    Better snack varieties in the office!

    Pros

    Fun people, positive atmosphere. HR efforts are improving. Caring middle-managers and dedicated people. Will spend the money on product development and sales.

    Cons

    Lack of complete dedication to marketing at the base level. Most of it is spent with managers traveling to the EMEA Market for trade shows and on Customer Appreciation events. Lack of any real dedicated or cogent strategy for enterprise accounts. While customer satisfaction is high and renewal rate is stellar they need to bolster their professional services and customer success efforts.

    Pros

    Great employees, leadership has been a revolving door, with the exception of the CTO (who is awesome). The employees are the ones that have been hopeful and somehow keep the company thriving through all the obstacles that have come their way.

    Cons

    Culture, short staffed, no direction, inexperienced CEO, noncompetitive salaries, not a great place to continue a career (more a place to stay the same), lots of egos in leadership, which makes rational decision making/planning challenging

    Good company

    Pros

    The Fremont area in Seattle is a great place to work in. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops, bars/pubs etc. The canal and Lake Union is at the footstep of the Adobe buildings that NetMotion resides in. The leadership change appears to be a good thing - expectations are high on both the execs side and employees' side. Training is not the same across the board, some departments/groups have a better on-boarding plan than others. Pay scale is somewhat competitive, vacation benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    Some departments do better than others with personal growth. Some managers haven't helped their employees at all, while there has been some that have helped grow people's careers and promote. Medical benefits could be better. Sometimes issues with collaboration between departments, but its getting better.

    Pros

    Some of the best software developers you can find. The software is well executed, relatively bug free, and built with security in mind. Great Benefits for a company of this size. Separate vacation time, 401k matching, flex time when needed, and great vacation to start. Fun, family, atmosphere in the Seattle office.

    Cons

    High quotas that are out of reach for most quarters. High amount of travel required. Very little remote software installations, most require travel onsite,

    Sales Exec Experience Review

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Technology is highly relevant and sales engineering team longevity is excellent. New CEO has a great reputation as a thought leader and knows how to build a great team.

    Cons

    The sales management approach is led by fear and there is no focus on the basics of sales training nor product training. High turnover in last 2 years. Messaging continues to change every few months. This is not a stable or healthy environment for anyone that contributes to sales (marketing, business development)

    Being in sales at NetMotion sucks

    Pros

    Mobility is the easiest software to sell. Just give a short live demo and it's done.

    Cons

    There are a lot of VP's for a company with only about 100 people. VP's must make up 25% of the company. That should tell you how many people are actually contributing meaningful work. With an incredibly high turnover rate in sales, it's a difficult place to spend more than a year. The sales people who are still employed after 5 years are essentially lap dogs for execs and get ultra preferential treatment yet never meet their quotas.

    Good Company Lots of change

    Pros

    Mobility is a awesome product. It's not in a well defined product space so it must be sold but once you can get a customer to try it they are hooked and it's easy to close the sale.

    Cons

    The company was recently acquired by a capital equity firm and they brought in their own management team and they are changing thing big time. Everyone is very nervous about their jobs and the future of the company. Morale is low.
