A good start, not the best outcome
Order Fulfillment Specialist (Current Employee) –  Westminster, COOctober 9, 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.

Avoid the Finance roles
Finance Director (Current Employee) –  Westminster, COAugust 24, 2018
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!

Look elsewhere. Bad company environment
Tech engineer (Former Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNAugust 19, 2018
Trimble is a very very low tech company with terrible leadership that are cheap with every aspect of the business except for executive pay. Trimble is a joke with zero growth potential, low pay below market, and zero support from management. The worst company I’ve ever worked for with a toxic culture
Cons
Below market pay, benefits, and incentives

Depending on your department, just another software job
Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Westminster, COAugust 13, 2018
There is good work life balance. No one here is going you to challenge you to get out of your comfort zone and learn new things, you will have to develop your own continuing education plan and implement it on your own. There are silos, politics, and turf wars, poor communication between people, teams, and divisions. There is a lot of offshoring. Not much in terms of individual, team or management accountability. Limited career growth potential, unless you want to go from hands on software engineer to a paper pushing manager. They will tell you that you can cross transfer to other departments, but most of the time, other departments hire from outside of the company because of the shell games and bureaucracy involved with getting an open req. Once you get out of your team's bullpen, its a big corporate hedge fund. If your division doesn't do well for the street, there will be layoffs - like other large Delaware corporations.
Pros
Work life balance, paychecks always cash, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, Profit Sharing, On Site Gym, On Site 7-11, Annual 24 hour hackathon, Food Trucks
Cons
You wont make more for doing more, raises follow a fixed pay scale, no growth potential, redundant HR reviews every quarter, health insurance is expensive especially if you have dependents, you could get laid off, you could get bored, seems like a dead end job, 7-11 is over priced, the coffee is horrible

Pleasant place to work
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Wakarusa, INJuly 31, 2018
I spend a lot of the time in meetings, with more focus on that than actual hands on work.
The people I work for are very pleasant.
The life of the company is very corporate and there are a lot of loopholes to make things progress.

Not a great place to work
Project Management Technical Intern (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAApril 19, 2018
Trimble Inc. very rarely converts people to full-time easily. As intern, they make you work as much as 50 hours a week. You get very less chance to learn and grow. Nepotism prevails.

Relaxed and enjoyful to work at. Not having my boss breathing down my next was the best part - I was there for a while and they know how I work so they let me do my job with no supervision.

An average company
Global Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Milpitas, CA 95035March 13, 2018
Trimble is a well-established Silicon Valley company. Any employee will be OK if they show up for work and do a decent job. There is some room for career advancement.

Basically, Trimble is your typical mid-size company
Pros
Stable, good benefits, work-life balance
Cons
Slow to adopt new ideas

It is a okay workplace
QA Engineer (Former Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNFebruary 26, 2018
It is a good company to work. Management are not capable to provide resources to get job done. There is no good direction on how things should be done. Basically you have to figure out from the day one.
