No opinion of CEO

Pros

Flexible working hours
Interesting mobile work

Cons

Projects and resources are poorly managed. Lots waste and inefficiency. Copying a few Agile slides from the internet DOES NOT help project management. Some very incompetent people are holding important positions. Some managers should not be managers at all!

Advice to Management

Hire industrial veterans to manage projects and resources. Weed out bad managers!
Good people would not want to work for bad managers. You cannot retain good people until you get competent managers.

    Cons

    Poorest management in the technology sector. The company were founded by PhDs, no people management skills at all.
    Brown Noses got promoted, but people who did good work don't get any recognitiosn..
    No fairness in promotion. It is not worth of working hard or do a good work at TeleNav. Management frequently plays favorism to brown noses.

    Advice to Management

    It is useless to layoff working level people while keeping bad management.
    First things first: Clean up management team, and let Go bad managers and non-performers.
    Firing working level engineers should come second
