    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.

    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.

    Pros

    some of the people, pay and their benefits. not enough pros to stay and take the abuse.

    Cons

    bad management and a general lack of concern for any of the employees. The Con list is long. Lack of honesty. The founder of this company would be so sad to see where the management team has taken this company. Bloated management team!

    Advice to Management

    FIRE CEO and 3 levels below him.

    Pros

    High pay, good co-workers, great physical environment.

    Cons

    Management maintain that Old Boy group. Lied about their efforts to invigorate the business.
    In my time at LoJack there were exactly one new programs, one new product. Money thrown away on flighty marketing ideas, bad business purchases, far too many chiefs in this camp.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, cut down on the executives, develop new products.
