Business Analyst/ Instructional Developer (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – June 24, 2017
The company was established in the 1970s and is still expanding to this day. Given that it was created over 40 years ago, management and personnel is rather "old school" with existing application and systems being consistently in need of upgrading. Management was also a bit archaic in their management style. Trimble is not a great company to start and settle into your career.
RoHS Compliance Specialist (Current Employee) – Huber Heights, OH – June 16, 2017
In the morning I go thought all my emails, working any that come through needing my attention. Then I update my logs and between those two areas, my day takes off. My goal daily is to gain RoHS compliance documentation, Working in this area, the job always takes me into other areas of work...one thing leads to another, in other words. Everyday I learn something new. The hardest part about this job is having to rely on others to give you the information you need to complete your job. However perseverance and a friendly helpful attitude on my end seems to work nicely for me. I absolutely love the people here. They are all very nice and fun and helpful. The management has cook outs and fun get togethers often which everyone enjoys. Very mature and balanced group of folks.
Accounting Specialist (Former Employee) – Huber Heights, OH – March 10, 2017
The co-workers and management were nice. Seem like a nice workplace environment. Benefits were good. Pay is generous. In my field, I sat for a long period of time. I am used to getting up moving around, so that is a con. The work load is unbearable. Very very high volume workload and difficult to manage. Must have excellent time management skills to do this job. In addition, I never cleared my desk due to always work to be done. I believe they could use a few more people to bring down such a high volume of work to be completed. However, I do not believe that will EVER occur.

Typical work day is long. Business model is very dynamic with constant changes due to large number of acquisitions. Management team was conservative and demanding.

Data Management Analyst (Current Employee) – Huber Heights, OH – November 2, 2016
A typical workday for me is to come in and help our customers (other employee's at Trimble) with any issues they are having with our systems or change orders. I have learned to use so many different tools like Cognos, Oracle, Smartsheet, Agile Product Governance & Compliance Module 9.3.3 – Administrator/Compliance/Conflict Minerals Manager. I can get along with anyone and I enjoy working with my coworkers, except for one because she tries to get me in trouble with my boss by making things up. The hardest part of my job is when we are at quarter end, because we get an influx of tickets and some of them are new ones that I have not handled before. But I love the hard tickets because I learn something new. The most enjoyable part is helping people with any issues, I am a people person and love speaking with them day to day.
Always something new to learn everyday.
They use our PTO for holidays and company shut downs which is a week at a time.

Senior Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – September 2, 2016
They have great technology and smart people, but they don't know how to sell the products they have. Managers are promoted just because they've been with the company for a long time or because they have a college degree, not because they have the knowledge and experience to fulfill the position.
The benefits are good, but the pay is below market and they do not give cost of living increases. They have grown by acquisitions and because they were primarily a hardware company they do NOT understand software development or how to sell niche software.
Buyer / Planner (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – May 4, 2016
Fast paced organization divided into many subdivisions or business areas. Some team environments can typically be stressful at times but overall managed to overcome hurdles. There is freedom to learn new things and techniques. With being such a large company there is a lot of exposure to different products and industries which kept the job interesting.

Sr. Release Engineer/DevOps (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – April 7, 2016
My typical day at work: Busy with the DEV and QA team daily for their requests Work on automation on Jenkins daily afterward at late hours. Handle official and patch releases and documentations as needed I work alone since I'm the only release engineer in US.
The hardest part of the job is to find my own time to work on automation since the daily requests are non-stop and very demanding. Also, work on DevOps role to do deployment as IT.
The most enjoyable part of my job is automation, because it'll cut down my work load afterward. Both DEV and QA team are very flexible and nice including my manager.
