    I worked at Savi Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The medical, dental, vision and life benefits were hi exceptional.

    Cons

    Exercise room and equipment was stopped which was a plus in terms of health and weight management.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more authority to all employees to help strengthen career development.

    I worked at Savi Technology full-time

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great coworkers. They were talented, quality oriented, and took pride in what they were doing.

    Cons

    All but a few were laid off at the whim of a small man in a role he has proven time and again he is not up to. Some have been brought back as contractors due to the lack of foresight in that decision.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to the person digging the hole you're in and start listening to the ones getting you out of it.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and genuinely care about cultivating positive experiences for the interns. I've had the opportunity to interact closely with VPs and SVPs and have learned a lot from each of them. No copies and coffee -- I'm doing real work!

    Cons

    Limited marketing department, but I believe Savi is in the process of hiring a new CMO so hopefully that will turn around soon!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great intern program

    Pros

    I had the pleasure of working closely with Bill Clark and the exec. team in 2010- 2012. It was a tough transition time, but when I left in early 2012, it seemed the company was heading in the right direction with renewed focus. Good people, good team!

    Cons

    Years of dependence on only a few large customers made it hard to transition solutions to be better suited to a broader customer base. But this was a few years ago, and hopefully they are better positioned now.

    Pros

    Savi is working on some of the most sophisticated big-data technology in the industry. Good people make for an enjoyable work environment. Great work-life balance. Lots of milestones in a short period of time, including major customer acquisitions and recent partnerships.

    Cons

    Savi's working on cool products. Would be nice for employees outside of products and sales to have more engagement through product demos.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to attract and retain top talent. Savi has a great base of smart people and keeping them in-house will help further the company's success.

    Could be a pro, but Savi is solving hard problems and sometimes it is not easy

    Keep up the communication of the vision and path to success

    I have been working at Savi Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since being divested from Lockheed Martin in 2012, the Company has successfully expanded from a government-focused RFID hardware business to an industry leading commercial supply chain visibility and analytics software business. This evolution has created many challenges, and we have had to make many tough choices, but Savi is now well positioned as the leader in both DoD/NATO and commercial supply chain markets.

    Cons

    Limited visibility into government sales opportunities and long sales cycles can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the passion, and communicate it continuously with employees, partners, and customers through words and actions; keep hiring and empowering the best employees; and keep having fun.

    Pros

    Determined leaders, engaged in the business, competent and ethical CEO and senior executive team, striving for continuous improvement; great opportunities, particularly for recent graduates; solid intern program

    Cons

    Reductions in year over year revenues from Government hardware led to move to new opportunities and a change in the direction of the company. While not a con, per se, it does require alot of versatility from the workforce and a need for agility and resourcefulness that some current employees might find very challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate! Keep driving the company forward and leverage your talents and experience to build upon the company's strong culture

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and decent equipment with which to work.

    Cons

    Lots of managers looking to make a name for themselves despite their lack of experience. Few experienced engineers had to carry the entire production workload.

    Advice to Management

    A company this size does not need so many levels of management. Spend that money where it counts
