    I have been working at Telenav full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    if you want a stable 9 to 5, this is the place

    it is the sort of place where juniors will get some mentoring from time to time. don't expect it, but when you really need coaching you will get it

    Cons

    if you wanna be peggy olson, be my guest. you are gonna be disappointed.

    the company is financially stable but with apple and google providing free GPS services, it will be hard for telenav to stay around. their enterprise GPS unit is fledgeling too

    Advice to Management

    management is very old guard. not a collaborative, learning organization. ideas come from the top, and the junior are seen as incapable and confused children. often feels industrial, which is probably the reason apple and google are destroying you.

    I worked at Telenav full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees at TeleNav are generally a good group of bright hard working people. Generally collaborative and open to new ideas and ways of doing things.

    Cons

    TeleNav needs a clearer, more sensible long-term business plan. The marketplace for LBS apps and services is constantly changing and highly competitive, however I did not see a viable long term business plan or strategy to address these threats. While the aspriation of what TeleNav wants to do and where they want to be may make sense, the path of how to get there was not particularly sensible. Additionally, competing internal projects contributed to already strained human resources, leading to constant product delays and missed expectations.
