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.

    I have been working at Novariant full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules prove they put their money where their mouth is when it comes to work-life balance.
    Everybody needs to eat: they make GPS steering hardware and software for the agricultural business.
    World wise company: they are expanding into European, Asian and Central-South American markets with low cost solutions for every size of farming business.

    Cons

    Transitioning from dealer sales model to OEM/VAR structure = no opportunities for people in sales.
    Transitioning from hardware heavy to software and service model = less opportunities for hardware engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep up with advances in technology and get ahead of the curve with sensors and autonomous steering and navigation systems!

    There is a few good employees left. Feel sorry for them having to deal with a crazy management team.

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out before they get caught.
