Decent place to work, recently downsized

Engineering Management (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsIn general, this was a decent place to work. They paid very well with liberal PTO, and had a lot of amenities. There was a lot of free food such as dinner for those working late and lunch at most noon meetings. Scout is a good product in terms of the ease of use (but see below).

ConsThe company recently downsized. They have incredibly stiff competition from Google Maps and Apple Maps and other location-based services like Waze, so the downsize was presumably an attempt to "hunker down" and make a leapfrog move in the technology. However, while they kept all the developers they dumped almost everyone else in engineering (support, QA, PM). I suspect this will lead to problems later on.

The Scout product has flaws that they say are being addressed -- the traffic and routing are currently below par.

There was some "job inflation" in that some of the management were positioned far above their skill level. This led to confusion in direction and a lot of "dropped balls".

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
