    I have been working at inthinc Technology Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay. Great, fun people. Relaxed atmosphere. Fantastic learning environment.

    Cons

    HR is nonexistent. If you have a problem accessing payroll, you're pretty much on your own. Was laid off during a massive company downsizing, so the future doesn't look to bright. They hired several people at the beginning of one month, then laid them off at the end of the month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire people if you can't support their positions for at least a year.

    I worked at inthinc Technology Solutions

    Pros

    Amazing smart people, who care about eachother. Plenty of technology to learn. R&D is valued.

    Cons

    Product is always changing hard to stabilize. A lot of customer complaints, hard to manage real issues from non-issues. A lot of disorganization making things ineffecient and become expensive really fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your losses, retrench, focus on the basic features of the product and make them solid.

    I worked at inthinc Technology Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The concept of Inthinc's products is great. It can and has saved lives. There are some great people to work with at this company.

    Cons

    While the technology driving the products is great, the quality of the product is very poor. Product, hardware and firmware, is often released full of bugs and quality issues.

    Very little executive overview of the company has a whole. Several C and D level managers, but very little management is being done. No one has ever been held accountable for their own actions minus those that the executive team found expendable. The executive team never took responsibility for major issues and seemed to often point the finger at those that had very little to do or very little control over the issue. The executive team continues to grow as do their salary, but little time, effort or money has been spent actually getting to the core of the issues and putting resolution in place to truly help the company progress forward.

    Last month (August 2014) Inthinc laid off approximately 30% of their overall staff. Many engineers, technical support reps, supply chain and others were let go due to ongoing operation costs and not enough sales. All the while, all of the executive team remained on board and some even received promotions to C level positions. Due to Inthinc now operating at minimal staff, it does not appear that Inthinc is in a position to stay in business much longer.

    This company has the ability to do great, but it's plagued by a very top heavy, uninvolved, unsympathetic and blind leadership team. If Inthinc trimmed a little off the top and put that money back into the company and put new leadership in place (replace the CEO for starters), the company could go far and continue to help save lives.

    The sad part about putting up this review is that the executive team will most likely just try to find a way to have it removed and not listen to anything that is actually said here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to start over. Put people in decision making positions that actually can and will make decisions that have positive results for the company and all of their employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good that they are a tech company and are forced to compete with other tech companies in the area.

    Cons

    Expect too much. They play the scapegoat game.

    Pros

    inthinc has an entrepreneurial culture and is performing cutting edge innovation around driver behavior management, workforce automation, mobile data and location. inthinc offers very competitive pay and big company caliber benefits.

    Cons

    Open work environment not for everyone and the pace of innovation comes with more stress than you would probably find at other tech companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at inthinc Technology Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There is a Crown Burger close to the office

    Cons

    Moral sucks and layoffs continue!! Revenues down for the second consecutive year. The products are NOT stable and Sales has to lie about quality of the telematics devices and the service organizations. The executive team is embarrassing, no consistent direction or communication, the products are released with defects and bugs in order to meet the what the CEO tells the investors and board.. The Clients do not come first, and are not told the truth, developments are delayed or never delivered. The open positions on Greendoor and the company website, have been posted for a year with no intention of filling them, management wants to portray a "growing" business, but in July laid off 30% of the staff. There are only ~60 employees remaining, but there are 8 at the C-level. Great move by management, layoff the little salaries and keep the heavy salaries, since they do all the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Golf at the company paid country clubs should not be your responsibility ("he" knows who I am talking about). Hold yourselves accountable, not those who have little influence on the direction and profitability. The CEO has failed turned over his staff 4 times in the last couple of years and blamed those that have been fired for his mistakes. Each of his hires or those promoted have been a bust. The buck does not stop with Mr. Follmer, who also won Entrepreneur of the Year....congrats!!

    Pros

    Product is well intentioned and works well. They have some great ideas for what they could do in the future.

    Cons

    Leadership is not cohesive and strategies change on a whim. Have not execute well on the future technology ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start at the top, there is no clear cut strategy that is then pushed down through the ranks. I am not sure any employee outside of executives could tell you what the over all goal for the company is.

    I worked at inthinc Technology Solutions as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I can't really think of any reason anyone should want to work there, except that some of the employees are decent people and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Cramped and unclean work environment. Lacked of preparedness for new hires. Lack of attention to detail. Lack of time given to explain duties. Dishonesty in payroll. Quick to threaten termination. And on, and on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't withhold promised pay from employees for work they have done. Give a place for each employee to sit while they work. Be prepared to devote the time necessary to train new employees in their duties. Don't threaten to fire employees after they've called in sick for two days. Turn on some lights in the building. Clean the work surfaces at least once a year.
