I have been working at Trimble Navigation full-time

Pros

Trimble is an established company with a lot of experienced veterans on the Team. The culture is professional and relatively mellow. The managers are reasonable, approachable, and very competent. Co-workers are smart, friendly, and collaborative. Work-life balance is good.

Cons

I don't have many negative things to say, but there are some inefficiencies in the organization which can be frustrating to navigate, and difficult to avoid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would like a more active and encouraging approach to career development, with a clearer path to advancement.

    Good management
    Good benefits
    Good compensation

    Cons

    No work culture i.e. no socials

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase social activities to better employee relations. A few social meets every year always increases moral and reduces work related stress.

    I worked at Trimble Navigation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Well focused company. Limited internal politics. During the tough economic times of the 'Great Recession' unlike many employers Trimble did not use wide spread reduction of force as the only or prime way to deal with controlling cost. While there were many lay offs it was nearly as bad as at most companies. The workforce is very knowledgeable and generally works well together.

    Cons

    Some post Trimble Spectra Physics power plays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More balanced control between the Sunnyvale, Dayton, and Westminster locations.
