    I worked at TruePosition full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Aside 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at TruePosition full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus on reducing cost of the product and deployment.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Terrible 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 ManagementAdvice

    Liquidate and take as much profit as you can.

    I worked at TruePosition full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Layoffs 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.
