Pros

Good vacation, holiday and health care pkg.
Great place to learn new technologies in telematics.
Good growth which will lead to more jobs, etc.

Cons

Senior management is lacking in how to handle the staff as they frown upon most everything.
VP level up is all white males so no diversity in the upper levels so a glass ceiling is present.
VP team is more concerned on show and tell and less on morale as they micro manage people.

Advice to Management

STOP micro managing your staff and spend less time worrying if someone is texting on the phone or taking a break to look up something on the internet and drive revenues. Let middle mgmt handle the teams and get on with making the company profitable. Also less rules and more creative flow allowing teams to not have to submit so much to get things approved which is just a waste of time.

    Pros

    Nice middle management that tries hard to keep things moving.
    Large important partnerships and customers.

    Cons

    Very little diversity in both thought and color in Sr. Management. Just look at their leadership team on the website.
    Communication skills are poor. I listened to several people ask who the guy was in front of the room talking during a large intra-office meeting. It turns out that a group of 8 people did not even know the President of the company and we are just 120 people...and they had been here 7 months.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are smart and know what is going on. Get out of the 18th floor and walk around. Very few people on the 17th Floor have ever met the CEO or President. Dress down. You scare the 17th floor. The only time we see you is to deliver bad news.
    Smile- Things are actually going pretty good.
    We work harder when we know the reasons and why it is important.
    Spend less money on software and vendors and more on employees.
