    Pros

    Great culture. friendly people, variety of products and services, opportunity for advancement, great benefits, flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    There are those who feel entitled to opportunity to advance without the education that others are expected to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In addition to encouraging people to apply for opportunities, help them understand they also need to take accountability to prepare themselves to be promotable.

    Pros

    Smart people who are passionate about the industry and the work they do. Visible leadership. Investing in the future and R&D. Great PTO allocation and company shut-down periods. Promote from within culture. Casual environment.

    Cons

    Groups learning to share customers and work through growing pains. Compensation differences between long term employees and new hires is out of balance, but I see this at many companies. Some times feels like to get a decent increase you need to find a new job and then come back.

    I worked at Trimble Navigation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits, flexible work schedules, good people.

    Cons

    Depends on your division, of course. Mine lacked vision and execution for how to organize ourselves and work best to get the job done. Extremely cumbersome change management process, project management process, etc. Separate systems contained the same information over and over for different purposes, very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smart people with good instincts were the only reason everything didn't fall apart. Don't underestimate or undervalue your people. Also, make the processes make sense.

    I have been working at Trimble Navigation

    Pros

    Consistant growth, great projects, new technologies, comparably less red tape, easy atmosphere to work in, transparency in decisions, travel opportunities

    Cons

    The IT group I am in is small, so opportunities for advancement are limited. This doesn't seem to be the case in general, but is something to consider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent growth seems to be by aquisition, which has not always worked out lately. Perhaps internal investment would be more successful.
