    I have been working at Skyhook Wireless full-time

    Pros

    Incredibly intelligent team and amazing portfolio of intellectual property really sets the stage for Skyhook as they aim to become the global leader in location technology. There is also a good range of benefits, full dental/health care, and they give you pretty much anything you need (laptop, software ect...)

    It also works well as a family as much as a company, the competition to 'beat' other employees is not an issue, but instead it's a cohesive unit working to accomplish one goal. Be the best location company in the world.

    Cons

    Due to the turbulent past of Skyhook, there has been a lot of pieces of the pie that remain shaken up and are just now beginning to settle and become more organized and efficient.

    I also worry that the newness of the executive team (less than 2 years) is adding to this chaos a bit.

    Pay a little under market rate but

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing towards efficiency however I would warn against more process.

    I worked at Skyhook Wireless

    Pros

    Easy work, management liaison was pleasant to deal with

    Cons

    Only lasted 3 months and wouldnt extend contract. Driving through extremely bad areas was also dangerous at times
