I worked at Novariant full-time for more than a year
Pros – Engineering department is small but they have really good communication.
Autonomy in the Engineering Design
Cons – Processes are out of date, need refreshing.
Advice to Senior Management – Upper management was really good, then they had some upper management changes and lost motivation of employees.

I worked at Novariant full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – IT, Finance and Operations were very helpful in providing information or fixing the computer system so that customers could use the product.
Cons – Too many failures caused daily return authorization to bring back products for repair
Advice to Senior Management – New management kicked out many employees to bring in their people. You need to scrap the current ERP system for one that has flexibility. If your product continues to fail, you are going to have major problems.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Novariant
Pros – As an engineer, it is a great place to work if you want to learn everything about GPS technology and vehicle control systems.
Cons – Being a small company it offers a very limited career path.
It is very difficult to introduce new ideas in an engineering department that is stuck in 20 year old software engineering practices.
Advice to Senior Management – Sell the company to an organization that knows how to manage growth and expenses, leverage the technology and its patents.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Novariant
Pros – Lots of smart people
Fairly small close knit place
Very real target market
Very cool technology

Need to forget about being bought out and worry about competing with heavyweights
Need to start driving innovation from bottom up sometimes
Put individuals goals aside and look at profitable markets.
Advice to Senior Management – Start working on derivative software offerings in farming domain, there is lower startup cost for small company
