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

    Pros

    You will be given a lot of work to keep you busy, and plenty of opportunities to leverage what you've learned while educating other teams about best practices.
    The people are friendly and easy to work with. As a new employee you will find people easily approachable and helpful in understanding the environment.
    Provides environment to build experience you most likely will see nowhere else.

    Cons

    Older employees are stuck in their ways, and will push back if you try to update their systems/services.
    Pay is nowhere near competitive, so this place is hard if you have a lot of bills. Bonuses and raises are only offered when you threaten to leave, and even then only offered to employees HR deems worth it.
    Policy to be in the office everyday, even though all IT and sales work is remote. They try to enforce it whenever they can. Probably to justify whatever office rental costs they've already paid.

    Advice to Management

    Offer competitive salary, and offer raises to the workers you value.
    Allow WFH for more workers.

    I have been working at Omnitracs full-time

    Pros

    The team is talented, friendly, and willing to train you to meet their expectations. They offer free keurig coffee, a decent gym on premises, and a very relaxed work environment. The MN location's distance from corporate management makes it a little easier to breathe, too.

    Cons

    Word-of-mouth says that pay and benefits are being trimmed to cut costs and make the company more attractive for sale.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management disregards the scrum structure and IT best practices in order to rush production, which causes more issues and lower morale. If you hired a scrum master and talented IT professionals, trust them when they tell you something is a bad idea.

    Pros

    Great company culture - met a lot of close friends

    Cons

    Crazy boss is an understatement. Micro-managed to the bone and frequent false promises. I get that all companies have these issues, but there needs to be a better job in hiring more competent management

    I worked at Omnitracs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Good place to meet friends
    Great furniture(Herman Miller stuff is cool).
    Location. Downtown is a cool place to work.

    Cons

    Pay is not market rate
    No raises or promotion in sight(2 years of working)
    Bonuses either non existent or nowhere near the promises.
    Management is laughable and clueless
    Company is constantly cutting benefits.
    Unfulfilling projects. The products are all legacy and you'll be working on old operating systems and constantly frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent mid level managers, provide better salaries and start hiring in one place. Pick Mexico and Dallas for collaboration. Wise up on your product line.
