    Great people to work with, very interesting technology 10 years ago.

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee) Berwyn, PA

    ProsGreat pay and good benefits, get to work with some large wireless telecommunication companies. You can learn a lot from the most knowledgeable engineers in the location and wireless communication industry.

    ConsAside from the initial offering of enhanced 911, none of the other location projects seem to have infiltrated the market. Working mainly with GSM networks makes you less marketable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook forward, concentrate on using location based technology rather than litigating to make the numbers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good technology, not enough sales

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe technology works well and as intended. The benefits (401k, health care, education reimbursement) were all top notch. The employees are dedicated and hard working.

    ConsThe cost to manufacture and deploy it is too expensive. Management has reacted to the market rather than proactively updating the technology and sales market for their products. Management has remained the same for years, but have not introduced any new contracts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on reducing cost of the product and deployment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A mixture of interesting work with reliance on too many outdated technologies.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Berwyn, PA

    ProsCompensation was great - The company always backed up their words with their compensation.
    Some of the work is really interesting.

    ConsTerrible management with poor direction.
    Some really awful tech in dev - Clearcase/ClearQuest stand out here.
    Waterfall development model, but there are scrums so they call it agile.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLiquidate and take as much profit as you can.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    One hit wonder.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Berwyn, PA

    ProsVery good compensation and benefits for this region of the country. Interesting and challenging work.

    ConsManagement team. Liberty Media ownership. Liberty Media operates as an investment banker, treating TruePosition as an annuity from its maintenance contracts with AT&T and T-Mobile. There's little understanding of the technology and how to leverage it in new markets, as demonstrated by allowing itself to invest and lose tens of millions in a failed attempt to go from a niche safety and security 911 location firm to a consumer electronics firm. And entrusting this failure to executives with no background in that field.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLayoffs are a morale killer. Annual RIF's are worse than a morale killer, they demonstrate senior management's complete disregard for people, their families, and the local community. Advice: figure out what TruePosition is and truly right-size rather than capsize.

    Great place to work with great benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTerrific benefits, flexibility, fun team building events. Interesting technology in a fast developing market. They are concerned with the welfare of their employees.

    ConsGrowth, volatility in the marketplace. It is an ever changing field and can be difficult to penetrate the market globally.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Expect to be laid off eventually

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe benefits are good, not great. Initial salary is good.

    ConsALL decisions are money driven. Opportunities for advancement are basically nil. Raises are a joke. Every 6 months they go through lay-offs. As a whole, they treat employees as though they have no self control or maturity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like adults rather than using blanket policies to punish everyone for some other individuals' bad behavior.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
