    I have been working at TeleNav full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, flexible work environment, exciting opportunities in fast growing competitive industries. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Need to hire some more experienced operational Execs and management to help with quicker execution. A bit of Founders syndrome. No desire for founders to leave just need to balance with new perspective and experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we want to compete we need to hire the right people to fill critical roles and stop moving existing people into roles they are not qualified for, specifically some of the GM roles.

    I have been working at TeleNav

    Pros

    1. Great people, helpful and understanding. Easily accessible.
    2. If you like to take initiative, there are a lot of possibilities to explore here and you get the credit for you work.
    3. Some of the best engineering minds in bay area work here.

    Cons

    The company is mid size right now and expanding fast. This means there is some chaos in management and some miscommunication occurs.
    - Responsibilities are not clearly defined.
    - Late Work hours, which might be a good thing for some
