    I have been working at FleetMatics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive culture, 30+ Nationalities, exciting product line, challenging work, employees have great level of ownership for the work they do. I’l really liking what I’m learning and the work I’ll be doing in near future 👍

    Cons

    Nothing major - Current location isn’t great but the good thing is its only for few more months as they’re moving to Sandyford in mid 2018.
    No proper canteen with food served, hopefully this will be taken care of in the new location, would be great if they have a canteen where employees can get fresh salad/sandwiches.

    Advice to Management

    Please put healthy lunch options in place in the new location.

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

    Pros

    Great product
    Most of senior management team are nice and helpful
    Great earning potential - if you're prepared to sacrifice your personal life

    Cons

    Too many inexperienced managers in the UK office
    Too much brown nosing
    UK management team favour you if they like you, if you speak up then you have a mark against your file
    HR in Ireland aren't honest or fair to employees
    If your face doesn't fit - they will force you out of the business

    Advice to Management

    Too much to mention but here's a few:

    Train your managers so they fully understand processes (giving out warnings without following process)
    The company motto is 'Integrity' - yet most of the UK management team don't know the meaning of the word - educate them before you end up in a tribunal
    Reward and promote individuals on merit, not the say so of an inexperienced manager who wants to promote his friends

    Pros

    Great people, awesome environment.

    Great product, easy software to sell and understand.

    Cons

    Uppers play blame game instead of working with the team to up the results.
    Sometimes they act as if younger a child and think being overly nice will be a way to motivate you.

    They also have nonconsideration for the market and where it lies today. Senior management wants you to suck the dollar out of whatever we can to achieve their goals and if they don't, there are consequences.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping to a certain tactic. Changing something every week isn't going to skyrocket sales. Sometimes patience is a must to get the engine moving. Can't het momentum is the tracks keep changing course.

    Pros

    Good money for an inside sales role
    The actually people you work with are mostly nice
    Have met a few good people here

    Cons

    A lot...
    Culture is terrible
    Management has "slave driver" mentality
    Lots of favoritism
    Belittling of employees
    Constant micro management
    They love to rip into you for days and throw a "but we appreciate your work" in there to make it all magically better.
    Little room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    This is only for the Chicago office, I've heard other ones are better.
    Chicago has a far to strict culture and management always pushes to hard for no reason. We are the top office in the company by far, no need to whip the horse to heavily.
