Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Oakland, CA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Oakland, CA

I have been working at Navis LLC full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Welcoming, friendly environment, developers are helping each other, a difficult domain to learn, takes a long time, but in return it is a big advantage to the people, more than technology your domain experience counts here, of course you should have sound Java background,
company reimburses outside training and education as long as it is business related,

Cons

Again domain is big and complex with different use cases, long time to learn, you need to be proactive,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

focus on "on the job training" more, working for container terminals, but never been to any, yet

    I worked at Navis LLC

    Pros

    Navis software is best in class but that does not stop the development team from working to make it better. The company has unmatched credibility for building and supporting a terrific product.

    Cons

    Submitting new ideas is much too difficult. Middle managers often block new ideas without explanation or discussion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep raising the bar but realize that everyone there quite intelligent and eager to give ideas if asked. Engage the rank and file more often outside the chain of command.

    I worked at Navis LLC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very dominant in its industry (marine container terminal). Some super talented programmers (although many of them have left, the built a fantastic software foundation). Nice location in downtown Oakland

    Cons

    Company has been bought and sold several times, not sure it still has much direction to it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you want to build a company or just make a quick buck?
