    I have been working at Trimble Navigation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Continues to grow even with a bad ecomony. Friendly and smart people to work around. Laid back if you can get into the right job..

    Cons

    Company profits continue to increase while the employees benfits decrease. Management walks around with chip on their shoulder, and is very closed minded to employees needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for the people that break their backs for this company. Listen to employees ideals and concerns.

    I have been working at Trimble Navigation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Many small business units, many development centers around the world, and international relocation opportunities.
    Very interesting product line, and opportunities to be involved in cutting edge technology.
    Trimble develops very good engineering platforms.

    Cons

    Poor market strategies, not very customer focussed, generally follow the "make it and they will come" philosophy. Extremely focussed on quarterly numbers, which drives a lot of very near sighted decision making through out the business.
    Very secretive about remuneration policy, salary grades, and performance incentive plans. Remuneration may not reflect changing job duties and responsibility, nor market rates.
    Office conditions in some sites are poor.
