I worked at Telogis full-time for less than a year

Pros

High growth company with IPO planned in a couple of years.
Recent influx of capital from Kleiner Perkins includes a seat on the board, so the company should become more directed and structured.
Good story for "platform", not just product. Finally getting off Silverlight in 2014 with planned Javascript release.

Cons

No executive plan for managing its growth. Hired a Director of Sales Operations who quit in 3 months.
Multiple sales teams calling on the same prospects due to acquisitions and overlapping product lines.
No marketing support or even a plan to generate leads other than trade shows and cold calls.
Long sales cycle. No leads means no pipeline which means no commission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in developing staff, not just replacing them. Support staff is good but overworked.
Control the nepotism and favoritism.
Hire a Director of HR, if not a VP. Outsourced HR doesn't work when a company gets this big.

    I worked at Telogis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very energetic group. High spirit and strong will to exceed. Young party type attitude, but the mantra of "doing what it takes to get it done". Strong Saas focus. Competitive base salary for the market

    Cons

    Marketing is non existent. Essentially they are party planners with no Marketing, Business Development skill at all. The Fleet product is the favorite child, little attention is paid to the rest of the suite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a real Marketing group that knows how to develop leads, generate interest in the community, get prospects interested in wanting to know your product. What you have today is nothing more than a group that plans parties.
