Very Niche Market.
Systems Technician / Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Plainview, NYAugust 29, 2018
The biggest issue with Clever Devices is they choose to be a reactive company versus a proactive company. Unfortunately the transit industry is so mismanaged that they literally look to throw their vendors under the bus. Since the Clever Device integrates with nearly all of the bus systems it gets blamed whenever something goes wrong. There have been many times whereby we as the techs resolve the buses issue because it was blamed on the clever device thus doing transit maintenance job by proving the clever device was not the culprit. Management when I worked for them would release faulty products that caused issues with clever performance and instead of admitting to it they would fire PM or techs to place blame on them when it was actually a product issue that needed to be resolved but since they were now reacting they had to buy some time. to figure out the fix.
Pros
always something to work on
Cons
Reactive in an industry where proactive approach would be best served.

Fantastic Company
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) –  Woodbury, NYMay 9, 2018
As a consultant, I enjoyed the experience of working at CD. Although I cannot comment on compensation, advancement and benefits, I can tell you this is a great company. Personnel are great individuals - friendly, and helpful.

Not recommended
Project Manger - Contract (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 6, 2018
One of the things that made the Clever Device role difficult is the company itself is located in New York but the job I held was in Chicago. Thus, you were always an outsider and never a real part of the team. The client was difficult and dysfunctional, and the Clever provided no substantive support. The job was so stressful it was literally making me physically ill, interestingly, the symptoms cleared up with in a few days of leaving. When they called to cancel my position, in truth, the thing I felt most was relieved.

Poor Management and No Strategy
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Woodbury, NYJune 28, 2017
This company is very unorganized and is run by "senior" managers who do not have the skills nor professional background. Very difficult to get anything approved. Not a forward thinking environment. They run the company like a mom and pop shop- Day by day. No planning, no strategy, no roadmap. Office environment is loud and people are very clicky, immature and unmanaged. Would not recommend.

Challenging but worth working for
Strategic Accounts Manager (Current Employee) –  Woodbury, NYApril 21, 2014
Clever Devices is a growing organization in the Intelligent Transportation Solutions industry. They have outstanding solutions and have work very hard to make sure they provide excellent customer service. Their employees and executive staff are very dedicated to the success of their projects and solutions.

My only concern would be that their desire/drive for success does come at a price: family and personal time. I enjoyed my time with the company and wish them all the success in the future. Just remember that even success has a price and are you willing to sacrifice your family to obtain it.
Pros
Healthcare, 401K, smart people, good solutions
Cons
demanding of personal time
