    Pros

    Telenav has a great product that is actually helpful, and some solid leadership that cares about developing their offering in the market.

    Cons

    While this company has a good offering, unfortunately the management doesn't have a strong focus on innovating. They really need to focus on developing more products and not just keeping up with the competition. They also seem to think that they compete with Google, but really I don't know that they even fall onto the radar.

    Advice to Management

    It's not only important for you to continue to innovate, but you'll also need to develop talent from within if you're looking to keep your top performers as opposed to losing them to stronger companies.

    Pros

    If you are considering a role here, keep looking: Very weak homegrown managers, worst exec team, CEO can't make decisions

    Cons

    Lack of focus and strategy. Too many people doing nothing, we have a handful of really hard working people, the rest don't even show up to work

    Advice to Management

    Might be time for CEO to find a new hobby and exec staff to retire, please

    Latest technology used, Quick adaptation of best practices. Good training programs by HR and industry experts. Good team members. Free food and Friday social hour. Compensation is competitive to the role.

    Cons

    Loud talker wins, Visibility is through any questions. Benefits so so but tries to be competitive to industry. Leadership takes input too much from newly recruited leaders.

    Cut losing businesses quickly. Consider right/left shift of senior management; Rotate first level management to get overall experience.
