    Pros

    Good team members Ok Benefits Flexible work environment This is a great place to sit until you find something better

    Cons

    Projects lack leadership, direction and accountability Proper skill sets are missing and the skilled resources are over worked Don't ever volunteer to do something extra to fill in for a resource gap - you won't get kudos; only admonishment for not hitting someone's undefined expectations There are a lot of Big-Fish-Little-Pond and Queen Bee types - improvements and technology are out dated

    I worked at Trimble

    Pros

    Good work like balance (they don't care where you work from, when or how much) Good Benefits (which help to offset low pay) Mostly pleasant work environment and people Nearly carte blanche travel policy

    Cons

    Company relies too much on it's technology purchases and stock price and doesn't recognize that it's greatest asset is it's people. Many executives here are "accidental managers" and were often promoted 10-20 years ago from technical positions. I can't see where many execs here ever had any training (initially or ongoing) about how to manage people or projects, so they just seem to ignore a lot of people management issues and hope they go away. Eventually the nail that sticks up will get hammered down, because many execs here seem to be more concerned with self-preservation than moving the company ahead. HR is extremely weak, and I believe that's by design, not by HR choice. Change is very slow. Flying ideas up the flagpole often get completely ignored. For a company this size middle management has very little power or decision making authority. Most decisions seem to be made very secretively at the executive level only and then passed down from the top without much explanation or rationale for the decision.
