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

    Pros

    Great company culture
    Everybody is passionate about their role
    Very culturally diverse
    Fun company sponsored events
    Family friendly
    Great benefits

    Cons

    I found no cons during my 8 years of employment.
    If you come to work with a positive attitude, then you will likely feel the same way.

    Advice to Management

    Being a former employee, I'm not sure my advice would be current enough to be worthy. I would say to keep up the good work. I often look back and really miss working there.
