    I have been working at Tektronix

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

    I have been working at Tektronix full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
