Think twice: long hours, turnaround with lots of problems, questionable chances of survival.

Finance Manager (Former Employee)
San Dimas, CA

I worked at Magellan Navigation

ProsNew management has taken over. If you are willing to put in long hours for the limited chance of turning this company around and the options / rewards that may entitle you to then go ahead.

ConsVery long hours focusing on latest fire drill instead of the core problems. Basic systems and processes are broken or non-existent. Example: did a very poor job of implementing SAP. One year later still can't get the most basic information out of it correctly. Senior management was very short term oriented.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus more on day to day operations, controls, systems and processes. Need to focus more on the long term and limit what you do (find a niche) but do it well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
