    Pros

    Some great engineers and plenty of good people. Been a good place to make friends and work on interesting stuff

    Cons

    No vision, No execution, Dependance on china, people run pet projects like its no one's business, no career dev, poor/avg salary, no incentives, very low morale and lack of enthusiasm. In a crowded space dominated by the biggies Google, apple , microsoft and maybe amazon soon..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake things up, have laser focus, execute at all levels, energize with purpose and passion and not by putting competition down.

    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
