    Former Employee - Software Engineer III in Morrisville, NC

    I worked at Tekelec full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Bonus structure helped encourage a team atmosphere. Good for new grads. Exposure to a large range of technologies and good coding practices. High quality requirements. Great time off policy and benefits. Good work-life balance and family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Opportunities are limited, salary reviews not happening. Some upper management have been around for a long time which is good and bad. Promotions are few and far between.
