Current Employee - Business Development in Austin, TX

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

Pros

High integrity company
Company takes care of its people
Lots of autonomy - "Be your own CEO" isn't much of an exaggeration
You are made to feel welcome and truly a part of the team
Lots of opportunity for innovation
Best benefits package I've seen in several decades
Fast paced in a good way
Seems like everyone truly feels like they are contributing
Easiest expense filing system I've ever worked with

Cons

Fast pace and heavily matrixed organization makes it hard to stay in sync

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let the investment or potential IPO change the many, many things you're doing right (great benefits, company credit cards for frequent travelers, investment in people - particularly new hires). This is a great company and can be even greater in the future if we don't diverge from doing the things that have made us successful.

    I have been working at Telogis full-time

    Pros

    Lots of interesting technical challenges. Nice office environment. Great coworkers. Work/Life balance is in your own hands, so even though it is hectic you don't have to let that get to you.

    Cons

    Can be too hectic at times. There is always pressure to get the next thing out but also to do it right, and to do long term projects. Sometimes feel quite isolated from other parts of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more responsive to requests from your workers.

    Discriminatory Hiring Practices

    I have been working at Telogis

    Pros

    Good technology, good products, strong VC backing

    Cons

    If you're over 40 forget about applying for a job here. Since the KPCB investment there has been clear trend towards only hiring people in their 20s and 30s at the expense of more mature and industry knowledgeable people. In fact, most new hires since the KPCB investment have been recent college graduates or younger people with virtually no fleet management or mobile experience and it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop excluding more experienced, knowledgeable candidates from the hiring pool because of their age. If you keep filling your ranks with inexperienced 20 and 30 somethings that look good on paper but don't know diddley about the fleet management business it will catch up with you in a hurry. In fact, it already has.
