    I worked at LoJack full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great positional support, on-going continued training, remote position with regular scheduled weekly/ quarterly meetings. Provides a multi- territory work experience. I truly enjoyed working for this company for over 8 years. No regrets and would continue to recommend to anyone interested.

    Cons

    Travel up to 40% of the time or more. Still evolving from a technological perspective with regards to on the job tools although many things were in development during my transition.

    I have been working at LoJack full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with at CalAmp and LoJack division levels under the LJ corporate people
    Good benefits
    Potential for some great growth and success as a company if roadblocks can be removed

    Cons

    LoJack needs to fully integrate with the greater organization and stop seeing itself as its own thing - more the exec level than anything. Very top heavy and lack of delegation, too much micro management to make working fulfilling and rewarding. Managers aren't allowed to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do what they are good at and what their job should put in their sphere of control, micro management zaps morale. Higher end people should not be picking at lower level issues all the time. It makes it seem like they don't have enough to do.

    I have been working at LoJack part-time

    Pros

    You do help a lot of people
    The free lojack is nice
    I like to get my paycheck
    Everyone is very nice and respectful

    Cons

    They give us false hope when it comes to changing your schedule.
    They don't allow the people who want to go full time do so
    No space for real growth
    WE NEED A CAFE WITH REAL FOOD

    Advice to Management

    Put none Supervisors in their place
    None supervisors should not feel like they have any more power than others

    I have been working at LoJack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is helpful, no matter who you speak with. They never pass you off onto someone else. It feels like a real team/family all working together.

    Cons

    The only downside so far is I'm fairly new to the Calamp family, but I've been with Lojack for over a year now.

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

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance
    - Strong position in the industry

    Cons

    - Office politics
    - Little career growth
    - Little desire to innovate or improve

    Advice to Management

    Quality of work is often overlooked at LoJack, as long as it is "good enough". This leads to a lot of staff coasting on outdated processes that have little relevance. Encourage innovation and excellence more.
