Very poor management and unprofessional HR department
Accounting & Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OH21 October 2019
Very poor management at this company. Workers are expected to process at a very high volume rate and co workers are allowed to come in late and not process at the rate of others and are not spoken to about the behavior. The HR department is very unprofessional and certainly not on the employee's side. The only good thing I can say is they do offer very good benefits. Recently over 500 people worldwide have been laid off. Some employees working there in excess of 30 years. They are moving so much of the work out of our country which has caused a huge impact on the quality of their product.

Great place to work
Finance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CA17 October 2019
The company moved my position after 10 years, but they did take care of me in the end. The people were wonderful and I was able to do my job independently.

Run
Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) –  4400 baker road minnetonka17 September 2019
You will be forced so far outside your job description you won't even remember what they originally hired you for. Refusal will be categorized as "bad attitude" and if you go along with it, they'll wring every drop of value they can out of you and give you petty excuses as to why you aren't advancing or moving up. The comp is decent for an entry level position, but not for what you'll be put through. Be prepared to give up every inch of your dignity and self respect while trying to do anything here.

Good for GNSS people, not for others
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bayern9 September 2019
Pro: Good work life balance, good for people who are in GNSS domain
Con: less room for growth. Trimble in general is different than the subsidiaries or children companies. I heard Trimble employees are happy but that is not the case with other sister companies. Much regional for sister companies.

Nothing bad to say
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OH19 August 2019
It was a good company to work for I hope the next place could be just as laidback and offer good benefits ad they did. They also help pay if you would like to take classes.

Culture depends on location
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Virginia18 August 2019
Some locations have a good culture. It usually depends on your managers and the location of the office.

But in the end, numbers are what matters. If the division is doing well, managers have some leeway to make a remote location have a casual culture. Raises are few and far between.

If numbers are not doing well, then things go downhill and your loyalty is not rewarded.

Disorganized mess
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Westminster, CO2 August 2019
Management lacks accountability and products are buggy and poorly designed. Hardware company trying hard to be a software company and failing miserably. Horrible training protocol for employees, terrible support and unprofessional management make this company (I thought would be my career), someone to pass by. Too bad...
Pros
International environment and ummmm...?
Cons
Horrible management, unqualified and inexperienced employees

Very relaxed atmosphere. Learned how to deal with difficult people and stay busy when the phones never hardly rang? Really liked my co- workers there and miss them.

Developing cutting edge technology to clients world-wide
Director Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CA29 July 2019
Trimble is a great company to work for. They have built themselves via acquisitions, which has its good and bad points.

Good - Company grows quickly, taking advantage of technology already developed.

Bad - Constant reorganizations can be good or bad for your career.

One shoe fits all..
Field operations (Former Employee) –  Sydney22 July 2019
I was lied to at the start of my employment, yesterday's technology at tomorrow's prices..
lots of world wide issues, in fighting between various depts.
Treated like a plie of garbage, travelled at the back of the plane, had to beg for a cash advance, as your ex3pected to give the company a free loan.. without interest.
Now they lost all of their big customers here in Australia, through fetching in managers from overseas that had no clues, one of these no clue managers moved the office closer to the city of Sydney as it was closer to his apartment, but meant the customers did not like it as they was positioned in the transportation hubs at the outer edges
Pros
Health cover
Cons
very unhelpful person in charge of payments

Not a company that likes to advance employees
Office Associate/Warehouse MRB Associate (Former Employee) –  Huber Heights, OH26 June 2019
Trimble Navigation does not have a good management team. Employees at the distribution center are treated different than all the other buildings in the area and they are very hard working. Trimble does not value their employees that are dedicated to their job and have been a good asset to the company. The local management team does not follow company policies.

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.
