    Pros

    Decent pay OK benefits OK work-life balance

    Cons

    Little to no training Managers are not interested in developing the skills of their direct-reports Lack of collaboration Lack of career advancement More focussed on financial and efficiency goals than product quality Heavyweight procedures in place to track problems that are somewhat pointless and mindless

    Advice to Management

    Short term goals are not everything. You need to have a long term strategy. Quit letting sales run the business strategy. Remember Fiorina at HP or Scully at Apple? Improve collaboration. You need to be willing to pay the big bucks to retain the top talent!

    Pros

    Pay is decent and the work never stops...lots of customers to provide services for. There are multiple disciplines to learn. They pay for your education and there are multiple locations to move to.

    Cons

    Upper management unfamiliar with industry. Too focused on financial goals and unachievable production goals in an industry where quality is king. Doesn't care about employee opinions, very authoritarian.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone in upper management from the calibration industry to give you some true vision and direction on how to make Tektronix a calibration powerhouse. Right now, your reputation in the calibration world is in the trash and the best talents are avoiding you like the plague!
