I have been working at Terenine

Pros

1. Due to the nature of what the company does there is some of the latest and greatest technology on the market.
2. Free popcorn on Fridays!
3. Spacious parking lot, but it is gravel so forget about keeping your vehicle clean :(
4. Close to downtown so there are a lot of awesome restaurants and bars, heck there is a liquor store next door. You will need it working here.

Cons

Where do I start...
1. Senior management just doesn't get it, there has been almost 100% turnover and they still do the same old things. They lie to your face, they don't think twice about backstabbing, they offer no direction and leadership, they do nothing but collect a hefty pay check.
2. The benefits are pathetic, you are better off finding insurance elsewhere.
3. The salaries and raises are very unfair and center around favoritism.
4. This place doesn't care about your personal life, you are expected to have your phone by your side every second of the day, forget to answer it once and you be reprimanded. Prepare to work insanely long hours with no compensation or bonus.
5. This is the only company that you are congratulated when you turn your notice in.
6. Morale is non-existent.
7.Everyone is constantly monitored and management wants to control every aspect of your life.

Trust me I can write a lot more, but for the sake of sanity the above are the major points.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please just leave so that perhaps someone qualified can take over and turn this place around.

    I worked at Terenine

    Pros

    Great collegial staff, faith based organization. Decent technology, modest benefits, plenty of free parking, interesting business model. Flexible working hours, casual dress.

    Cons

    Struggling to gain market share in a niche marketplace, some members of management at director level are inexperienced. Significant attrition at senior technologist levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on selling what you can deliver, not a pie in the sky solution. Invest in training your remaining staff.

    I have been working at Terenine

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technical staff that likes to teach
    Access to good technology
    Immaculate data centers
    Friendly co-workers
    Free coffee
    Exposure to technology that is more high tech than most in the region and for the size

    Cons

    Horrible communication, especially from senior management down
    Out right and open dishonesty from some in management positions
    Not enough staffing in technologist positions (because turn over is too high)
    Management likes to take credit and shift blame

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shifting seats on a sinking ship and thinking that it will make it stay afloat

    There is over 30% turnover, at least acknowledge that there is a problem.

    Communicate, not talk, communicate. There is a difference. Talking is just making noise. Communication is doing it with actual thought and intent.

    Reign in the people that need to be reigned in...people should be able to disagree with someone that has the word "Director" in their title without being shouted down in a room full of their peers.

    Listen to your employees. Listening does not mean that you have to agree or make a change, but it does convey that you at least care
