    I have been working at Tekelec full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    What it used to be, the memory of what it once was.

    Cons

    CEO regularly lies to the work force in all minds meetings. Nobody trusts or believes what comes out of our addict leader. Executive team bubble, needs to be trimmed down to reasonable levels. Middle and lower management disaster! With a few exceptions, most managers are not trained or have the skills to do their jobs. This has caused a mass exodus out of Tekelec into competing companies. There is no path for advancement, nor any sense of satisfaction for the job you do. Tekelec does not seem to mind or care about their talent and turn a blind eye to mediocre management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    And for the CEO... how are you enjoying those millions you made on our backs?
