I worked at R. L. Polk full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Worked in IS&S. Nice benefits. Great Technical Managers. Smart developers. Enjoyed the projects and new tools used to document and develop apps.

Cons

Competition is running up Polk's backside. Attention to details and usability in applications will make or break them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can have the best code and technology in the world. However, users evaluate on what they see and experience. Look and feel and usability are critical or competition will eat your lunch.
