Pros

The people in the trenches still care, and the products are good.

Cons

It feels like the junior varsity squad of assistant managers from RayMarine just took possession of a giant toy boat called Navico and are blasting holes in the hull with a Remington rifle to see how much it can take before sinking.

The running joke here is that the managers are actually still on Rayarine's payroll and were given the mission to kill the competition by slowly bleeding all that was good out of the company and replacing it with hacks.

The amount of money spent of travelling "executives" and offices we don't need runs into the millions of dollars. But then again - at least the new COO offices happen to be in the same building as RayMarine used to be.

Please - sell this company to someone with a clue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There isn't a management team left in America to give advice to. FYI - Jens Thomas is gone. It is now some other guy in Europe that visits once a year.

    Pros

    It's a paying job, and for that everyone still employed feels blessed. Non-managerial co-workers are great and hard workers. The benefits are actually still quite good especially for the economy that we are currently in.

    Cons

    Lowrance Electronics, which was a nice family friendly place to work was purchased by a Norwegian investment group to form Navico in 2006. Since then employees have been "privileged" to watch the implosion of a company that is being killed from the inside by top management. Morale in the company is at an all time low, and most employees are actively seeking a job elsewhere. Expect long hours, not much thanks, and unreasonable work loads if you come to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and fix what is already broken instead of continuing to add more projects. Stop taking on more and more grandiose initiatives and spreading your internal resources even thinner than they already are. Also, take some time to troll the web-boards. When your end customers say you have horrible service for Lowrance/Eagle products, listen and DO something about it, like hiring some staff.

    Pros

    Innovative Products covering many aspects of the Marine Electronics Spectrum.

    Cons

    Company is currently owned by a large venture captial company that is only interested in positioning the company to sell it. Senior Management does not truly understand the Marine Business!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Building Customer Loyalty through strong customer service and after sale support should be your primary focus!
