I worked at Wireless Matrix (More than a year)
Great people to work with, everyone truly seemed to enjoy their job and treated you like an actual person vs a number. Also had a pension and company stock share program.
Product was lacking at the time in features vs many of the large competitors we came up against regularly. New feature and product rollouts were delayed time after time which can result in embarrassment for sales reps. Company was bought out at the end of my tenure by a larger manufacturing company. Not much growth opportunity, really nowhere to go as the company wasn't adding positions nor had much mid level management. As a sales rep you reported directly to the VP, who reported directly to the CEO. The current CEO was the CFO when I was there so I'm not sure how she runs the company however I would imagine she got the job because she's better at "managing money" aka pinching pennies. I can't imagine the place has became a better place to work nor that they have made any comp plan or benefit changes that have actually benefited the employees outside of C-Level.
Advice to Management
Keep up with the competition!!! Also can't rely completely on the Verizon channel for reps to farm for leads, some in house marketing web marketing would probably pay off huge: there's a reason all of the largest competitors to you guys spend a lot of money to show up on the first page of Google... IT WORKS!
I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wireless Matrix (Mountain View, CA).
Simple. Several meetings with staff and a few SQL tests. Had to demonstrate how to test a mobile device end to end with their system. I had to create a harness and manipulate the messaging system to generate all messages from the mobile device and then see the messages traverse the system and appear in FiFo order on the user interface.
