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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    - Office politics

    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 This leads to a lot of staff coasting on outdated processes that have little relevance.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.

    Pros

    Great staff and great membership. Highly recommend working here as it is a great source for networking

    Cons

    Selling to staffing companies at Indeed is not for the faint of heart. For new sales people considering, recruiters are experts in sales and can sniff out a rehearsed pitch in 10 seconds and are filled with objections.

    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.
