    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.
