Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA

I have been working at Spireon full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Most of the employees are OK to work with, paycheck comes in on time. The building has a nice open feel with a decent kitchen and workout area.

Cons

Tons of incompetence in 50 different directions. No support from upper management. No bonuses paid out for several years.

I saw one of the most competent designers let go because of a personal disagreement with his manager.

    Pros

    Smart technology is the wave of now and the future and this Company sits right in the middle of an explosive Telematics industry with tremendous upside. Benefits are competitive and the company is located in a desirable area of Irvine.

    Cons

    The Company removed their co-founder (CEO) and other key executive staff members in the middle of 2013. Prior to the Co-founders removal, growth rates were accelerating with increasing velocity. The new CEO has shifted the Company from a Sales focus to a Process oriented focus. This directional change has flat-lined revenue growth (which is cause for concern in a growth stage enterprise operating in a growth industry). While the new CEO is a genuinely good person, his lack of industry knowledge and appointment of an amateur supporting C-level staff is allowing competitors to take advantage of the situation and steal market share at an alarming rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much to write in the post, however, operating within a SaaS environment often requires outside of the box thinking and intense planning as it relates to each products Go-To-Market solutions offering. The Board should take a step back and seriously evaluate each of the current offerings and question if the value proposition makes sense 1-3-5 years down the line.
