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

Pros

Friendly co-workers, lot of potential to grow, easy communication with top management, always ready to listen to new and bright ideas. Good benefits. The new HR director seems competent and the over all work quality is improving.

Cons

Need to retain some of the bright minds. Lot of good talents leaving the organization. Over dependence on off shore china team. Sometimes communication becomes a barrier.

Advice to Management

Improve the interview process to hire better talents. Must try to encourage people to work on independent projects, other than the job related work. Must go beyond social media to reach consumers.

    I have been working at Telenav full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In a relevant, growing industry

    Moving from risky reliance on carrier partners to a more diverse mix of revenue sources

    Good cultural changes taking place. Slowly weeding out the people who only say, "No, it can't be done"

    Good work atmosphere and hours. People work late when they're a little behind, but no continuous 12-hour-day death marches

    Great new facilities, with gym, game room, some catered lunches, etc

    Cons

    Talented employees are still leaving. Lots of infighting over scarce talent. Some engineers have to split their attention among 3+ teams

    Software development and deployment methodology stuck in the '90s. Waterfall. Over-emphasis on process, planning and documentation

    Salaries are average, but equity compensation is all but nonexistent. We ought to be handing out stock like candy to motivate people to stay

    Advice to Management

    Please do what it takes to retain our top talent
