    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at LoJack full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with at CalAmp and LoJack division levels under the LJ corporate people
    Good benefits
    Potential for some great growth and success as a company if roadblocks can be removed

    Cons

    LoJack needs to fully integrate with the greater organization and stop seeing itself as its own thing - more the exec level than anything. Very top heavy and lack of delegation, too much micro management to make working fulfilling and rewarding. Managers aren't allowed to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do what they are good at and what their job should put in their sphere of control, micro management zaps morale. Higher end people should not be picking at lower level issues all the time. It makes it seem like they don't have enough to do.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LoJack (Canton, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen which was a preliminary to an in person. I answered one or two questions, then I was asked what my range was. I said for this job I wanted $150k and she said they didn't want to pay more than $100k. Average for this title is $129k, so I ended the interview politely.
