    Pros

    TruePosition was a really great place to work, but it's been circling the drain for many years. Pay was great, they did catered dinners during crunches, and benefits/401k couldn't be beat.

    Cons

    Layoffs. Layoffs. Did I mention layoffs? Almost every year around November there would be layoffs, and sometimes the department managers wouldn't even be consulted and the VPs would pick who to get rid of.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate instead of riding the gravy train.

    Pros

    Very nice people and great environment to work with.

    Cons

    You need to keep working with tight schedules. They start tight and agile.

    Advice to Management

    keep development engineers in the loop. They make your product.

    Pros

    Outstanding technical people in their field who are great to work with and learn from. R&D spans almost all electrical, computer, and software engineering sub-disciplines.

    Cons

    The more one learns about the history of the company, the more puzzling the history becomes.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to be given.

    Pros

    Pay is great. Technology is very interesting. People are generally nice, except for the ones who think (or thought) that because they were there from the beginning, everyone else is scum.

    Cons

    Backward-looking management that refused to be open to new ideas until it was too late. Obsessively paranoid IT department.

    Advice to Management

    Kill all those ridiculous internal process that just slow things down.

    Pros

    Great people, good project, hard-working team. I enjoyed working on the projects I was given, and thought the products they produced were excellent.

    Cons

    The company had a single real product line. FCC rules promulgated in 2/2015 caused business to dry up.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed the opportunity to work with your teams. I hope you have a future in the new landscape.

    Pros

    Good benefit, good salary, good vacation policy. Flexible work hours.
    In general low level management are good.

    Cons

    High level management have tight control of the technology stack.
    Nobody take any risk. Just play safe and get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Hire real good professional consultants and give them freedom to operate. Don't be afraid to give up control.

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits and flexibility. Challenging work. Great concept.

    Cons

    Success has been based on government mandate and other cheaper solutions now exist. Management stuck with base product too long. Management mismanaged the business for many years.

    Advice to Management

    Use a core development team to develop new products outside of core business.
