    I have been working at Location Labs full-time (More than 8 years)


    It has been really interesting to read the reviews. I've been here for a long time and the reviews are pretty easy to parse: smart and action-oriented people really thrive here, at any level, and grow and are given more responsibility quickly. Less talented folks who expect to be carried through a system struggle and get angry about it because things are not given to them. I started at Location Labs really junior (like part-time junior), even though I had worked at other big companies before. Location Labs was really different in one core respect: I've never worked at a place where great people are given so much room to grow and excel. There is no bureaucracy slowing you down. The Leadership team is really sharp and there aren't any politics. They all want to win together. More recently, the company is trying to "grow up." Company values (awesome) are now painted on the wall and reinforced in company meetings where the CEO calls out people who have recently exemplified each one. The HR team has tripled in size and brought in some really talented and analytical people. Certain teams have rolled out "career growth ladders" and more are coming. The Management team is also super honest and straight-shooting. Many of us were concerned about layoffs when Location Labs was acquired by AVG. Management said that layoffs would NOT happen and that the company would grow--and it has! The only people who have disappeared (for the most part) have been some folks who were struggling anyway... overall team size has grown and quality has improved.


    The downside here is that the "systems" are not as strong as other large companies I have worked at. My perspective is that that is a good thing for smart people who are go-getters and problem solvers--there is no "system" in their way. However, it's not great for weaker employees or those who need to be handed things--they don't get carried along by any system like they do at some larger companies. There is not a lot of training for managers in the middle and that needs to change if we are going to continue to grow at this pace. I see some younger folks who could grow faster than they are (IMO) if they had managers who were more dedicated to growing them. Lastly, the future is a bit less clear than it used to be. We were just acquired but have not really worked very closely with AVG. Are we going to? How? I have some ideas...

    Advice to Management

    Work hard to over-communicate: the company is now pretty big and so communication doesn't come as naturally as it used to. Also need to train more managers in the middle: there is great "leadership" at the top but we need to train more people to facilitate communication and training. Finally, what is the plan for the next year or three? Are we going to work more closely with AVG or continue to focus on our own business? And how do we hire faster? Some of our teams are drowning with all of the work!
