    I worked at Leica Geosystems (More than a year)

    Pros

    They had some of the best benefits and perks I've ever had. I also enjoyed having flex hours and really liked my coworkers.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics at play when you work in the Marcom division of the company. Once you start to climb that corporate ladder, others may throw you under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more oversight and leadership within certain departments. Also, it isn't fair to be asked to work overtime and not be compensated.

    I have been working at Leica Geosystems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good people I have the pleasure to meet along the way, many of them left to other companies along the way.

    Cons

    If you are not loud you don't get to move on corporate ladder. Too much politics play, rules that only create busy work for upper management and only creates more work for other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about no managerial employees and listen to employees that spend time with customer day to day out on the field.

    Pros

    Great people, Great company. Pretty transparent. Work is pretty enjoyable.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity is sort of an issue. Some areas have NO growth opportunity, which means you will have to stay in the same position for a very long time or leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be like Ken. That should be a saying around here or WWKD What Would Ken Do? He's an awesome leader with a wonderful personality, but some of his team is not the same and shouldn't be managers.

    Good technology at Jigsaw Technologies. Strength of technical team goes from field technicians all the way up to the CTO, who is an expert in the field of mining fleet management and optimization.
