I worked at Turning Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
It's not as bad as being stabbed with a broken bottle, which is entirely possible in the surrounding area. It also makes all other jobs seem much better than they may be.Cons
Pay, management, location, open floor plan, management, management, management, management. Also, management.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a more toxic environment. Contributions aren't recognized. Blame is always shifted. Somehow the same management team remains and the same mistakes are made. Somehow, none of it sticks to the C-level monkeys running the show.
Management is not only clueless, but they're arrogant. They never realized they were lucky to get into a niche market at the perfect time. They ignored their monumental flaws, rather than address them. When a surfer grabs an amazing wave, he rides it and then paddles to the next one. Management at TT rode that wave, took credit for the wave itself and when they made it back to shallow water, they had no clue where to paddle next. It's never dawned on them that they just happened to be in the right place at the right time and paddled. To look at it this way, the leader of the flea circus started seeing the fleas.
The idea of TurningPoint and clickers was copied from other companies. The idea was someone else's brain child, but Turning had a better logo and a sexier coat of paint on theirs. TT has never done anything original or innovative. Ever. It's both sad and amazing that a company had such a peak based on smoke and mirrors. Since then, it's been a myriad of bad products, both poorly thought through and broken.
If I haven't made it clear, you should NOT work here unless you're desperate. You should still take the 30-40% higher salaries in Pittsburgh and drive an hour, desperate or not. Everyone who's left has made the same comments: weight lifted off their chest, no more daily dread, feel free, making a lot more money, etc.
Last thing, look at the reviews. A lot of 1's that just happen to be offset by a lot of 5's. Sort them by date and notice a trend. A couple of bad reviews and within a couple of weeks, a couple of excellent reviews come in to balance them out. This trend occurs several times and a few of the excellent reviews talk about how great the communication is and they need to weed out the "few" negative people. Please, when you're going to post BS reviews, try to be less obvious. Then again, what else would I expect from that management team besides poor execution of an even poorer plan.Advice to ManagementAdvice
