    Pros

    As an engineer, it is a great place to work if you want to learn everything about GPS technology and vehicle control systems.

    Cons

    Being a small company it offers a very limited career path.

    It is very difficult to introduce new ideas in an engineering department that is stuck in 20 year old software engineering practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to an organization that knows how to manage growth and expenses, leverage the technology and its patents.
