RUN! This is NOT a good place to work if you intend to have any kind of life outside of the job

I worked at Tektronix

Pros

Good pay level, good location. Fairly modern technology. That is all I can think of at the moment, and that is thinking hard.

Cons

I had the worst time of my career working there. The Tektronix Communications group located in Texas is the result of a badly executed acquisition. Their product is poorly supported and way overpriced, so the few customers left are very unhappy. Management wants you to spend days, nights and weekends working, they call it a "high performing team". PM turover is huge. AVOID! If I had known what I know now I would have taken another job for a few dollars less easily and avoid the terrible experiece.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Notice how many valuable people you are loosing, how can that be good for the company?

    Pros

    good pay. Easy work, you were stereotyped into your job and there was no way out. If you did a job good there was no hope for moving up.

    Cons

    Too many primadonna's riding the shirt tail of their old manager protecting them for their ignorance.

    Be open to new ideas and keep a open mind. Business needs and challenges evolve over time. Listen to the people they are in the trenches eveyday
