    I have been working at Tomax full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fairly laid back work atmosphere, fun projects and great people to work with. New and exciting projects with big clients and partnerships makes the outlook good. Benefits are good with generous time off and decent medical and 401k.

    Cons

    If you're not on the team working on the more cutting edge stuff some of the tools and equipment can sometimes be fairly dated. Things seem to be moving away from these older technologies though so the future is looking brighter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cheap out on computers, nice equipment makes for happier employees.

    I worked at Tomax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked a developer. The best reason to work here is because they will give you a chance even without a stellar resume. There are a lot of fun people working here too, and it is pretty laid back.

    Cons

    There isn't really any training. There aren't bonuses, and one time senior management made promises to us that they didn't deliver on. So don't trust promises for overtime work. Working hard doesn't really get you anywhere in terms of raises, so don't bother doing anything over your 40 hours. Just beef up your resume and find something better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees that you want to stick around, and try to be less of a bottleneck.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Management is very disconnected from current technology. Everything is shoot from the hip and hope for the best. Very demanding and burn out within a year or two is inevitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees that you value them or they will continue to leave.

    I worked at Tomax

    Pros

    Good place to get basic knowledge. Some good people to learn from.

    Cons

    No training. Micromanagement. The building is hot in the summer, and cold in the winter. incompetent managers, no vision. The owners buy new cars for over 100,000 then tell employees no money for raises. If the tree are good reviews they are put up by the HR department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management never listens. So why try

    Pros

    They are finally starting to shake up middle management a bit, get rid of the old and bring in some new movers.
    The beer cart is amazing. The girl who pushes it though isn't too bright however, If you drop a dollar she will bend over and pick it up! Bonus!
    Lots of very attractive men and woman! You would hardly beleive this was a software company! Also very pro-gay. Team parties where we play touch football is super fun!

    Cons

    Theres only 3 toilets on the third floor to serve over 100 ovefrweight and partially diebetic male programmers. You can basically forget going number 2 between the hours of 11:30am and 2:30pm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Serve more light beers.
    Repurpose some of the 3rd floor womans toilets for the men. It is a 90% male workforce after all.
    Continue to send ineffective managers off to "middle management heaven" to keep your new initiatives progressing smoothly.

    I have been working at Tomax full-time

    Pros

    A really fun environment, the team of people feels like family. Some amazing new technologies in the mix like Scala, iOS, and Big Data! Improved emphasis on work-life balance along with some good benefits like fitness classes, running clubs, ping-pong tournaments.

    Cons

    The company is still undergoing change so there are still remnants of old culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to the new vision and over communicate! Put people first and continue to replace mediocre people with great people! The new culture is good - let it grow!

    "Management" isn't - Micro-Management it is

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Tomax full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers. A few good teams to work with and learn from. Good down-town location, off-street parking, and close to many lunch options.

    Cons

    If you aren't part of the "in" crowd (they, unfortunately, are not the talented crowd) you can't do good work. No matter what you do, "management" will take credit or suddenly decide they wanted to do THAT a long time ago. Flexibility IF you are one of the "in" crowd, not if you are just a regular employee. Bad pay, very few days off (PTO and company days).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since you seem to be positioning the company to dump/sale for your own profit, just do it and let the real workers continue. You obviously know nothing about your own products so your "guidance" would not be missed.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Hard-work is appreciated! Flexible work environment for the people who do not misuse it. Nice and friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management not always connected with the world of individual contributors. Talent and skills are not well utilized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Has great vision, but need right people to provide direction. Look for ways to hold on to talented, skilled people.
