Frustrating, but it pays the bills.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Educational Testing Service

ProsGreat work/life balance mindset. Non-salary benefits are probably better than most. The pay is respectable for the locale and the industry in general seems to be doing well despite the economy.

ConsIneptitude is often overlooked and favoritism by management abounds. Senior management touts platitutes and ideals, but front-line managers rarely follow through. While pay is good for this location, positions are tied to pay bands/ranges. Unfortunately, some mid-level managers thought it a clever cost-saving practice to categorize "down" some roles into positions with lower pay bands. As a result, some workers who are performing the same tasks as their east coast counterparts may be paid significantly less at this location.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job of recognizing and developing talent, instead of promoting the "survivors." Requiring that entry- and mid-level management candidates have a legitimate sense of business acumen would do wonders for the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
