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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Managers are hit and miss. Interesting work in most cases. Nice facility. Very good benefits. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Stagnant wages (to be fair the poor world economy probably had something to do with it). Did not see employees be rewarded for going above and beyond the call of duty. Immediate layoffs happen with no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. They are your greatest asset. Concentrate on producing products that have great quality and value. Don't rush them to market. Provide better training (when necessary) to employees - don't do it on the cheap or commit enough time to it. Recognize employees that have shown outstanding performance with a little more than having them stand up at a meeting to be recognized.

    Pros

    Good people to work with
    Good atmosphere

    Cons

    -Management doesn't seem to care about employees. They lay people off to create a profit margin to get stock price to raise when their market starts to get slow.
    -Middle management has no power just a false sense of it
    -Lay-offs seem to be of the highest salaried rather than the lowest performers or "last in, first out".
    -No room to grow.

    Pros

    PTO accrual rate is good after you've worked for the company a long time

    Cons

    -Management doesn't seem to notice or care there is low moral.
    -Management doesn't look to the people who do the work for suggestions on what can be done batter/what the issues are. If they do, they don't take the input seriously
    -Do not try to retain people, and usually don't backfill. Which means few people doing too much work
    -No career development plans in place for lower level employees. And any moves that are made tend to be lateral, I.e no increase in salary

    I worked at Trimble full-time

    Pros

    The workers (for the mot part) are the best. The work is challenging. If you're salaried you'll almost always put in extra work but again, the people make it worthwhile and the work is interesting. You'll never be bored or lacking new projects.

    Cons

    Division management can be difficult. In some cases, division managers are out of the local area or out of the country altogether, making communication difficult. Some mid-level managers aren't terribly competent or helpful. Turf wars and empire building were a bit of a problem between overly-ambitious managers who weren't professional and not friendly with one another.

    Advice to Management

    More training for mid-level managers, better cooperation / communications between departments, managers, and division heads.

    Pros

    Great work place. Great work/life balance factor.

    Pros

    Trimble took over and is cleaning up. Great job!

    Cons

    Unskilled workers were promoted above more skilled predecessors (if management had a motto it would be " Surround yourself with idiots and you'll always be the smartest one" That's why Terry hired Dave to work with him.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors have forced many skilled machinist out of this company through false accusations and unheld promises. Proof is in the past resumes and duration of employment.

    I worked at Trimble (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people were friendly, and willing to help to support one another.

    Cons

    The Ag division starting doing poorly a few years back, and never picked up momentum. People started to leave for fear of lay-offs (which they did have). Some managers are not supportive of people trying to move to better / different opportunities. Thus, not giving raises even if you're performing well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep someone in a role "just because" they've been there for a while.
