    I have been working at LoJack full-time

    Pros

    The company is doing well financially. Car are stolen everywhere. The current CEO and business team seem to execute well the selling of the legacy product. Atmosphere is quite relaxed.

    Cons

    Personal growth is reserved to a special class at the top. There is very little technical innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is top heavy, too many managers, innovation close to zero, no new products. Is doing well currently but some competitive products are closing the gap.

    I worked at LoJack full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    LoJack was a work/life balance based company that valued it's employees. I learned a great deal, made some wonderful business contacts, enjoyed several years success and am grateful for my time spent there to this day.

    Cons

    To no fault of thier own the economic automotive crash. Stagnet technology. In addition, the excess amount of administrative demands on the sales personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a positive, informative line of communication between cororate and the field. Support and stand up for your team.

    I worked at LoJack full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people there really want to make a difference and work together. Over the years that I was there they looked at a number of different industries and technologies, so the opportunity to be involved in new innovative things is there.

    Cons

    Much of what LoJack does is focused on their core business which for many reasons is declining. Often though, new businesses are held to the same expectations as the established business and they don't give it enough time to grow. In addition, your experience is very influenced by who you work with and once your reputation is set, it is hard to improve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Determine whether the strategy is to grow more for existing channels or expand to new channels, but don't try to do both, because then you don't succeed either way.

    Troublesome future

    Current Employee - Customer Service Manager  in  Canton, MA
    Current Employee - Customer Service Manager in Canton, MA

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

    Pros

    Great relationship with law enforcement; reliable basic theft recovery technology

    Cons

    Unstable leadership and lack of vision. Company has all its eggs in one basket. Its distribution strategy rests within the hand of few car dealerships. The company does not invest in employee development beyond basic training. Lojack hardly promote within except on the top where you have few siblings in VP positions who keep getting promotions and promoting their friends at the ewpense of more deserving and hardworking employees. The company technology is outdated; it Early warning products is unreliable and expensive. SafetyNet is a total loss

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your comfort zone; embrace diversity and innovate. Pull the plug on SafetyNet. It is a failure that has lasted too long at the expense of shareholders.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is important to the company and it seems like they really try to accomodate their workers when they can.

    Cons

    corporate downsizing and lack of support; company tries to do well for its workforce but workers are stressed and things fall through the cracks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership could be stronger. When there are big changes in a company's leadership the writing is usually on the wall.
