    Silo Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-Solid products and business plan.
    -FTE's seem to be treated well, get theirs.
    -Some groups seem to have fun all the time.

    Cons-Negative, juvenile behavior is rewarded in some groups.
    -Lack of process, disdain for new ideas.
    -Work impacted by inter-group snipery.

    Advice to Senior Management-Coach/Remove anyone that creates a negative/hostile work environment.
    -Work harder to remove negative/toxic team silos.
    -Reward and celebrate collaboration victories more conscientiously.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I'm proud to work at this amazing fast growing company !

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people here make the difference, and what a difference! I love going to work everyday making an impact. Everyone is motivated to succeed as a team together and everyone helps each other to succeed. The product is amazing and it's great making a difference saving people from accidents. I can honestly say I love my job and the company I work for!
    Great things are happening at this company, you can feel the excitement in the air!

    ConsCons? The office might need a remodel but I hear a new building is on the agenda.. Many companies offer free snack but drivecam doesn't yet.. Not a work from home culture yet, a little behind the times in that aspect.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep investing in your people, we love it! Offer some work from home days!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top executives create a model corporate culture

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat pay, "no agendas allowed" team atmosphere, F500 caliber executives, extraordinary support through all departments, advancement for those who excel.

    ConsCommunication and collaboration, taken to extremes, can sometimes lead to inefficiency and confusion/disorientation of employees. So many processes requiring so many are kept in the loop.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline/simplify the departmental roles and communication lines so as to empower individuals to act more quickly. Other than that, I look forward to buying your stock when you go public.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This company has solid potential.

    Technical Manager (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsThe product makes sense. The technology is being used to help drivers get home at night without causing accidents.

    ConsCompany has been around for 10 years; that is a long time when you are venture backed company. I think there is a lot of stress regarding "why" the company hasn't turned the corner yet. Services are hard to provide when you have so many moving pieces. You have the dbase, the review, the front end application, the transmission of data, a middle tier server...so many pieces that need to be watched for a successful implementation. Completely doable...this is an execution play!

    Advice to Senior ManagementA new CEO was put in place. I wish him and his team all the luck in the world. Focus on the implementation and make the service truly scaleable by supporting the interface with customers....Stop creating one offs.
