I have been working at Magellan Navigation
Pros – Technology and industry are good for developing a base in consumer exlectronics. You get to work with leading contract manufacturers. You get to wear many hats.
Cons – Low quality products. Poor leadership. Lots of pollitics between the new ownership and previous employees. Company is run for short term numbers so that it will be and attractive company to sell or take public. However, the business plan is not there and the competition beats Magellan in flexibility, technology and quality. Sales and marketing organizations are weak. Understanding retail and trade marketing is non existant. Product development is slow. Engineering is acceptable but lacks operations knowledge.
Advice to Senior Management – Quit followin the trends and start creating them. Get serious about quality. Find a replacement for neverlost or you will lose the business.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
