    Pros

    Trimble is a WW culturally diverse company that prides itself on having open communication with its employees and offers an excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Although it acquires many companies per year & allows them each to work independently it can be a bit difficult to try to find the right contacts within each group to proactively consolidate some of the many business solutions.

    I have been working at Trimble full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Trimble is an excellent company to work for. Employees are extremely collaborative and communication is at the forefront. The executive team is totally transparent and approachable. Employee development is encouraged. Work is flexible and work-life balance is thankfully stress free.

    Cons

    Trimble acquires many companies & is therefore quite segregated in the way it runs. Most companies remain responsible for running their own operational structure.

    I worked at Trimble full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Note that I worked in the military division (Trimble Military and Advanced Systems - TMAS), which is a wholly owned subsidiary. However, I'll make comments about the general company as well. Starred Ratings below are more about TMAS. 1) The CEO of Trimble is a number cruncher, so he's always looking out for the company's bottom line. 2) The benefits are decent 3) The salaries are competitive 4) The general company has a good career tracking / employee review system 5) At TMAS, the jobs are very stable. 6) At TMAS, you get a small company environment, even though the general company has thousands of employees 7) At TMAS, leadership encourages a good work-life balance. 8) Management at TMAS is open to ideas that can improve processes 9) Management at TMAS "has your back" when conflicts arise with outside agencies.

    Cons

    1) As I said above, benefits are decent, but not competitive with top companies in this area 2) TMAS should invest more in automation of software testing. 3) It's a very flat organization., so not a lot of variety in positions. 4) You need to have patience and confidence to succeed at TMAS. 5) Could use improvement in the area of "on-boarding" and training of new employees. 7) TMAS does not use the Trimble career tracking / employee review system

    Pros

    Awesome environment, very collaborative and friendly employees. Everyone values work/life balance, yet works hard to accomplish tasks

    Cons

    the structure is somewhat silo'ed, which has benefits, but also leads to overlap and poor communication sometimes.

    I worked at Trimble full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Interesting technology -Work life balance (if you know how to set expectations with your manager) -Competitive Benefits -Overall Trimble seems like a good company to work for

    Cons

    “This is the worst place I’ve ever worked” was a common sentiment that I heard from many different members of the organization while working at VSS. The negative sentiments towards the organization were driven by a lack of basic business management best practices, such as creating a clear direction and regularly rewarding employees for meeting goals that moved in that direction. Overall work was driven by seemingly ad-hoc requests that lacked clarity and purpose rather than providing clear requirements that were written down in a project plan. Furthermore, there was a general lack of vision and strategy that was shared across the business and engineering teams. Software engineers spent a good deal of time working on tasks that they thought were in alignment with the business strategy only to be questioned as to why they had spent time working on that task and then disparaged for not getting any "real" work done. As you could imagine, a significant number of software engineers have quit out of frustration, many of them not even lasting a year in the organization.

    I worked at Trimble full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance/Profit share. Shut downs for at least week 2 to 3 times year

    Cons

    Some of the employees have intolerances and indifferences toward others not in their cliche or new employees. Diversity needed. A lot changes from quarter to quarter.
