    Fun and challenging place to work!

    ProsThe work pace at Magellan is very fast and cutting edge. It's awesome to work for a company that may launch the next "must-have" consumer electronic device.

    ConsThe "Magellan" brand name was sold twice during my tenure with the company. As such, there was significant turnover and management changes and challenges.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management needs to empower employees and learn to hold them accountable for results. Otherwise, the top/down management will continue to impair the company's ability to grow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My tenor at Magellan was rewarding and challenging as it was a company in constant flux.

    ProsMagellan offered International exposure with opportunities to present financials in US GAAP, French GAAP, and IFRS format. Teamwork. Location. Evolving technology.

    ConsPart of the appeal of Magellan was its constant state of change, which also was its downside. However, good people made this challenge also rewarding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrive for approachability. Many managers tended to stay in their own domain instead of promoting cross-organizational exchange of ideas and teamwork.
