It's exciting to be a part of a growing company and industry. Iteris has helped me grow in my career.

I have been working at Iteris

ProsMy accomplishments are acknowledged. I'm given more opportunities to grow as the company grows. Employees are GREAT to work with - team dynamic. Company goals are communicated effectively.

ConsCut back on holiday time in December was a huge disappointment and a benefit that we have participated in for years. Its seems there is a disconnect between Sr. Management and our CEO at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementCEO should connect with employees more.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work, great people to work with

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Grand Forks, ND

I have been working at Iteris full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe people at Iteris are great to work with, and the weather and traffic problems are interesting. I like the freedom to innovate in solving problems and the ability to influence the direction of projects. As an open source shop I enjoy the dev environment.

ConsCorporate sometimes gets in the way too much, and some of the corp. IT systems like time cards are too old.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more aware of market salaries.

I have been working at Iteris full-time for more than a year

Pros1. Get to work on pure vision problems.
2. Freedom to create own algorithms
3. Very good manager who is understanding

Cons1. Bonus and salary is not comparable to similar companies.
2. Average age of employees is high. If you are hoping to find a vibrant and enthusiastic environment, you are going to be disappointed.

Meh!

I have been working at Iteris full-time for less than a year

ProsCoworkers are good to be around. Casual environment and very flexible.

ConsCEO has the tendency to let go about 5% of the force every year. Pay is not competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees and pay them accordingly.

Big management and salary problem

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Grand Forks, ND

I have been working at Iteris full-time

ProsWork/life balance is good.
As long as the work gets done, hours are pretty flexible.
There are some good benefits (i.e. computer purchase assistance, tuition assistance)

ConsSalary is not at all competitive. Iteris wants as much work as it can squeeze out of its workers for as little pay as they can possibly give. For this reason, keeping actual talent and experience is a big problem; especially in the Grand Forks office. Iteris likes to brag about all the cash it has in reserve during its quarterly reports so it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Communication among Iteris management is miserable. Left hand never knows what the right hand is doing.
A lot of employees have "Vice President" in their title which makes company organization appear incredibly cluttered, inefficient and lazy.

Advice to Senior ManagementSalary of workers (not management or one of your many Vice Presidents) needs vast improvement. Stop trying to meddle in everything; especially the things that already work well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Would not recommend working here

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Santa Ana, CA

I worked at Iteris

ProsDecent pay and benefits. Non-managers seem content.

ConsAutocracy: Senior staff micromanages, and/or manages by creating conflict - ie. gives two people the same project without telling either one. Enjoys openly degrading staff in meetings; not open to new ideas or suggestions. Decisions vary depending on mood. We would know layoffs were coming because he would promise "no more layoffs" , then lay people off the following week.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire the right people; focus on running the company, and let people do their jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
