Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Telenav full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

In a relevant, growing industry

Moving from risky reliance on carrier partners to a more diverse mix of revenue sources

Good cultural changes taking place. Slowly weeding out the people who only say, "No, it can't be done"

Good work atmosphere and hours. People work late when they're a little behind, but no continuous 12-hour-day death marches

Great new facilities, with gym, game room, some catered lunches, etc

Cons

Talented employees are still leaving. Lots of infighting over scarce talent. Some engineers have to split their attention among 3+ teams

Software development and deployment methodology stuck in the '90s. Waterfall. Over-emphasis on process, planning and documentation

Salaries are average, but equity compensation is all but nonexistent. We ought to be handing out stock like candy to motivate people to stay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please do what it takes to retain our top talent

    I have been working at Telenav full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    if you want a stable 9 to 5, this is the place

    it is the sort of place where juniors will get some mentoring from time to time. don't expect it, but when you really need coaching you will get it

    Cons

    if you wanna be peggy olson, be my guest. you are gonna be disappointed.

    the company is financially stable but with apple and google providing free GPS services, it will be hard for telenav to stay around. their enterprise GPS unit is fledgeling too

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is very old guard. not a collaborative, learning organization. ideas come from the top, and the junior are seen as incapable and confused children. often feels industrial, which is probably the reason apple and google are destroying you.
