    I worked at FieldAware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely professional work environment combined with amazing leadership. I was supplied with excellent training. and top notch equipment & product from day one.

    Cons

    You need to keep an excellent & up to date pipeline at all times or you might lose your deal to another sneaky salesman. As long as you are on top of your files, theres no problems / cons.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, just a sincere thank you to senior management for the opportunity and knowledge learned while they were open.

    I worked at FieldAware full-time

    Pros

    Great culture and there are many great and smart people to work and grow with. The product has a lot of potential, but again needs work to be competitive in the market. Very flexible with schedules- working remotely or in office

    Cons

    The company needs to listen to its employees when deciding where to steer the company. Major changes need to be made.

    Pros

    Fun environment, smart people, fair pay, energy to improve status quo and better ourselves for the sake of customer service and the success of our business

    Keep on pursuing our positive change management! We have moved leaps and bounds! We have so many customers who rely on us and value our product/services. We are positioned to be the market leader in the very very near future!

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

    Pros

    Best work life balance I've ever had. Very little management oversight, so you can choose your own story here. Good talent here, just not motivated.

    Cons

    Despite what disillusioned executives might preach, very few employees buy into the idea that the company has much of a future. Because of this, 2 hour lunch breaks are common and there really is no desire to work cross-functionally unless some kind of commission is at stake. Deadlines are missed on a regular basis and camaraderie is developed mostly by joking about the disarray that the company is in.

    Advice to Management

    Step up and keep people accountable. Implement a basic project management process and stick to it rather than shuffling people around and expecting change. I've seen a lot of reviews that say "fire everyone and start over", but if you set simple goals and hold people to them (with both positive and negative implications) you may be surprised.

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

    Pros

    Close to major science and technology hubs.

    Cons

    The place is an employee mill . Getting chewed out by radical management is commonplace and if anyone could give a reason it was poor. Questions still abound if the software even does what they promise clients. Might just be a data collection rouse.

    Advice to Management

    Turn yourselves in and they might have leniency on you.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, biweekly paycheck.

    Cons

    This company is disastrous. They have closed several offices and are hemorrhaging money. People are constantly being let go or jumping ship on their own. There is no HR, no order and no processes in place, and most importantly the product itself is not good. What I was told about the product and the future of the company during interviews was a complete fabrication. I truly feel that I wasted a good portion of my career working here. Many people know each other from a previous company and were hired because of nepotism.

    Lastly, I know for a fact that the positive reviews were written or requested by management because while I worked there I was asked to post a positive review to combat all the negative ones. The recent one below that says FieldAware is a "world class company" and on the way to be a "market leader" is a great example. The company has gotten rid of half of its employees, closed offices and the most recent CEO left, so that statement is laughable. The company is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Start over. Fire all management.

    Pros

    The heads are looking out for you and they want to see you progress. The product has some real potential and its still in the start up phase so every day is something new. Pay is decent and its a fun atmosphere with good people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement at the moment but will as the company begins to grow. Communication between the departments needs to improve for our customers.

    Pros

    A few decent people to work with. Everyone can bond over how much the product and company is in a disarray (always good for a laugh to lighten the fact they might fire you at any second).

    Cons

    Very low pay. Sales Managers get their way every time, regardless if it is the right decision. ZERO room for growth since the company has done nothing but downsize the past 3 years. Bad decision making by the decision makers over and over as they tried to adjust to the market and competitors taking customers away. New product features rarely, if at all, were rolled out on time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees not yourselves.
