Great Company Poor Leadership
HRBP (Current Employee) –  Westminster, CO11 June 2019
Depending on the leadership team you're assigned to, you can have a very different experience. Unfortunately, poor leadership is tolerated and can become very toxic. Work-life balance and flexibility are provided to some, but isn't a consistent benefit offering throughout the company.

Terrible managment! No support and extreme complacency!
Service and Support Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OH28 May 2019
This is the place if you want to be walked on, left in the dark and completely have a terrible workplace experience. The company touts a modern product all the while the work spaces and equipment is old and run down. Their engineers are complacent. Their managers are out of touch with todays reality. The products they sell are spec'd by competitors and do not meet the specifications they claim. This should be a law suit but most do not check the specs of their products they only trust the name and in this case what a falsehood.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
You have to work with managers that lie to your face.

Hardware company trying to be a software company
Senior UX Designer (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MN17 April 2019
Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
I worked at PeopleNet full-time (More than 3 years)

There is a lot of talk about the kind of company Peoplenet (now Trimble Transportation) is. Innovative. Best-in-class. Supportive of new ideas. An industry leader working to help fleet managers and truckers. Four times a year we’d sit through the two-hour long all-hands meetings and listen to this, then turn to one another and say “Wow, wouldn’t it be great to work for a company like that?”
All the good things about the place seem to be either accidental or a legacy from when it was a small company. The C-levels talk a good game, but it’s wise not to believe it.

There is complete disconnect at all levels of the company.
In my career I’ve seen silos in companies where divisions are walled off from one another, including one place where two virtually identical products were being developed for the same customer group by two separate divisions, neither knowing about the other. But hands down, this company is the most disconnected of any I have seen. C-level VPs have no idea what …
Pros
work-life balance
Cons
upper management working without a solid strategy, contempt for user research, incompetent product people

Relaxed environment
Undergraduate Intern (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OH17 April 2019
I enjoyed working here. The team was great, work was satisfying, and pay was satisfactory for the work I was doing. The only complaint I have is there was no formal way for work to be assigned to me, I had to ask my manager if he had anything for me.

Crazy place to work
Senior NPIE and Product Engineer, Timing Division (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CA20 March 2019
This place had gone back to startup mode with no moral values. The management in Operations didn't know the products or their functions. So, they never understood the people who worked for them.
Pros
Good people to work with except few really bad managers
Cons
Director of Operations drove people nuts and didn't know his functions or others and products

A good start, not the best outcome
Order Fulfillment Specialist (Current Employee) –  Westminster, CO9 October 2018
Trimble is a great place to get your corporate career started. State of the art facilities and up to date technology are all positives. Im sure at executive levels, this is a great place, but many find it hard to advance within the company. There are no clear paths to promotion. They do no encourage career development.

Those that aren't corporate drones should steer clear, it is a culture that will grind everything out of you that they are able to. Look elsewhere to be happy!
