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

    Pros

    They were pretty flexible and you definitely weren't micro managed. Typicall small company cube farm setup. Beers and snacks always in the fridge. No dress code, just don't dress like an idiot. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    Company lacked an in house Hr dept. I left soon after the company made their second round of cutbacks. That entire process seemed like it could have been handled better from an hr point of view.

    Some bad decisions were made with purchasing another company and they paid the price. But as another other review pointed out there has been some radical changes in management since then so perhaps they are on track for more profit now.

    But I'm sure their profits are still driven by govt. spending. So profits and morale were very boom or bust.

    I know that this con section is much longer than my pros but I just want to assure you that this is a good place to work. I wouldn't say it's my first choice but I would not mind working there again.

    Pros

    TerraGo has some excellent technology, and an excellent management team. The CEO was a strong and experienced manager with great vision and was easy to work with. He instilled a sense of teamwork and common purpose throughout the company. it was a pleasure working there.

    Cons

    Sales were heavily dependent on federal government market

    Advice to Management

    Branch out to other addressable industries to buffer unpredictability of the federal government market.

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

    Pros

    Some of the best people to work along side.
    Laid back atmosphere
    The company made you feel valued

    Cons

    Upper management needed to do better due diligence in trying to purchase a company that was bleeding out. An idea turned into massive turnover as a result

    Advice to Management

    Management has completely changed hands since my departure

    I worked at TerraGo Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nimble and inspired, TerraGo is talented group led by a smart and charismatic CEO. It has a much bigger impact on federal military and intelligence GIS markets than its size would imply. They get in the door, expand what is possible, and deliver it.

    Cons

    Company overstretches sometimes leading to poorly managed growth (layoffs, start and stop projects). TerraGo is currently too dependent on large federal and military contracts; needs to diversify revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Build share of commercial, state, and local customers; and continue to set the standard that is outpacing the competition.

    Pros

    Company has an excellent, niche product offering and specific goals for growth
    Sr. management is top notch and CEO is very effective in sharing his vision
    Workplace perks include 4 weeks PTO to start & free soda's and snacks

    Cons

    Small company, so healthcare plan is somewhat high cost
    "Cubicle farm" work space can be distracting; no privacy
    Not much else to say!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in rewarding employees for a job well done and recognizing contributions. Great job, TerraGo Tech.

    Pros

    Cool idea and mostly enthusiastic folks trying to make it take hold. Pretty flexible work schedule when I was there.

    Cons

    Some of the old guard can make it tough to innovate, at the time the upper management seemed to be switching out on a semi-regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the current batch has honed the company to a more finely tuned machine. I can't really comment since my experience was more than 2 years ago.
