Pros

As Trimble has made numerous acquisitions, it has taken a hands off approach in the initial months to properly integrate pre-existing methods and management structure. At the same time, representatives from the corporate office make the rounds regularly to make it feel like employees aren't alone on an island.

Cons

After the hands-off period the company doesn't do enough to work on morale. In the current economy even a token effort in this regard would likely improve productivity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There seems to be difficulty separating the wheat from the chaff when doing the expected cost-cutting measures. Management should do a better job consulting with multiple levels of the organization instead of entrusting the task only to certain groups.

    Middle management delays a lot of projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management at Trimble seems to be fine. Although they appear to be buying a lot of companies all over the U.S. alot; how are they going to integrate them all?

    Pros

    The technology is cutting edge and a lot of fun. Times are flexible. Benefits OK. Company is doing well.

    Cons

    Salary structure not logical. Some receive very high salaries others for same job quite low salaries. Promotions to middle and upper management are very often not transparent. Seldom based on merit, mostly on brown nosing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take performance reviews serious. Promote transparently. Replace the bad managers.
