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

    Pros

    If you want to have access to the latest and most cutting edge technologies in transportation engineering, then Iteris is the place for you. I cannot think of a better company to work for than Iteris. More companies should be like Iteris and allow employees the opportunity to work to their full potential. You won't be held back here, if you want to do it, then you'll have the chance. And if you don't know something, there's always someone with the expertise to help you. The relationships you form here and those that you keep with you forever, no matter where you are - Iteris always felt like a family.

    Cons

    Lots of work, but also lots of different projects to work on, so it comes hand-in-hand. You may have to work long hours, but benefits (experience) outweigh the costs (time).

    Advice to Management

    More frequent reviews and encourage mentoring.

    Pros

    - Great team, everyone is friendly, approachable, experienced and professional
    - Small group, everyone gets to know each other well and gets along
    - Recently underwent new company rebranding, going towards IT and data analytics
    - Great for career growth, to learn new technologies and techniques of the industry
    - Great work/life balance
    - CEO and senior management are very approachable and respond positively to employee feedback

    Cons

    - Not enough young people in the office, need to hire more from local universities
    - Need to involve employees (especially entry level) more with industry events and opportunities
    - Mediocre compensation

    Advice to Management

    - Positive direction for branding and corporate image, but need to reflect that in terms of day-to-day work/projects too

    Pros

    Very focused company, highly intelligent and hard-working staff across all divisions, great technology platform (I work in the Performance Analytics Division so I can only speak for that platform), excellent benefits and good work-life balance. I am so happy I accepted this position over others I was considering. Very proud to be a part of Iteris.

    Cons

    What company doesn't have "cons?" If "cons" are challenges adapting to new and changing market conditions and trends, then bring it!

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing. Keep you finger on the pulse of the market, as well as employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Get a whole week during Christmas week.

    Cons

    Hours can be long sometimes but they have 1/2 day fridays

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the culture you had when Jack was heading up the company and you'll decrease your high turnover rate.
