    I have been working at TerpSys full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This place saved my life. You think I am kidding. I had been stuck in an industry that I hated for 9 years and couldn't get out no matter how much I tried, I kept falling back in. The CEO of Terpsys took a chance on me and Ill never look back. What a great company. Sure it has pitfalls but anyone who thinks any job wont is kidding themselves.

    Cons

    As many have pointed out the company lost a major contract held for 15 years and that caused chaos. Most got offered jobs with the new company and some jumped ship entirely. In the melee that followed some of the best benefits Terpsys once had took a nosedive. No more certification reimbursement, tuition assistance and some of the incentives. That said, I am optimistic they will return at some point as the company regains its footing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Wish there were more companies like this. Focus on bringing back the certification reimbursements, even if it is on a limited basis - say 1 paid cert per year - after that you're on your own. This was a major perk and it helped one stomach the slightly lower pay than the current market demands for this industry. It would really help. The culture is there - every day is another step forward!
