Pros

Incredibly intelligent team and amazing portfolio of intellectual property really sets the stage for Skyhook as they aim to become the global leader in location technology. There is also a good range of benefits, full dental/health care, and they give you pretty much anything you need (laptop, software ect...) It also works well as a family as much as a company, the competition to 'beat' other employees is not an issue, but instead it's a cohesive unit working to accomplish one goal. Be the best location company in the world.

Cons

Due to the turbulent past of Skyhook, there has been a lot of pieces of the pie that remain shaken up and are just now beginning to settle and become more organized and efficient. I also worry that the newness of the executive team (less than 2 years) is adding to this chaos a bit. Pay a little under market rate but

Advice to Management

Keep pushing towards efficiency however I would warn against more process.
