I have been working at Terenine full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fantastic coworkers. Reasonable salary. Beautiful city and area to live. No shortage of interesting and varied work. Lots of room to advance. Nice hardware. Good immediate supervisor. Flexible environment.

Cons

Salary is not competitive within a 2-hr radius (Ok for Chattanooga though). Raises are puny. No bonuses. Can't retain top talent, turnover is impossibly high. A little uncomfortable with primary funding sources (can't discuss, either). Senior management has an attitude that they are doing employees a favor just to give them a job, and therefore employees owe them. Attempt to grab all employee's private IP (anything you do on your own time and equipment is owned by them unless you get an exemption in writing). Constant flux, management still hasn't figured out what they want the company's core competences to be. Hypocritical 'Christian' environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize and reward the value of your employees. Treat them like you want to be treated yourself. They aren't your slaves, that mentality needs to go.

    Pros

    Some fantastic co-workers. You will be challenged and have technical arguements that will sharpen you. Some of the best technology in this part of the country.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, none of the fantastic people are in management. We all wonder if they went on retreat and thought, "how can we be more evil?" Part of the answer is making employees sign ridiculous "company protection agreements" that basically keep any of us from getting a job if we were to leave. They have stabalized the workforce through fear of lawsuits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being evil. Treat your employees how you'd like to be treated. Apply some of your Christian charity to your own people instead of beating them up. Rebrand yourself already and provide some actual leadership and direction instead of creating fear.

    I have been working at Terenine

    Pros

    1. It used to have lots of great people - good for networking - but many have since left.
    2. The owner claims to support a fairly decent cause.
    3. Salary is best in the area - if you've been hired since the last management change.

    Cons

    The short story is that the management is completely incompetent. They have consistently been unable to provide direction; they do nothing meaningful to promote retention or raise morale; and titles are of no consequence.

    Benefits are pretty bad overall, morale is extremely low, and people who have been there 2 years+ probably haven't seen a raise during that time. Many of them are long overdue. The company instead burns them out and pays twice as much to relocate people and provide salaries to them. It's an interesting concept. And like everyone else has said, communication doesn't exist. At least meaningful communication doesn't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is on the wrong track and it is clearly a management issue. The best thing to do right now is listen to the suggestions being given from the people that still work at this place. There have been a number of things pointed out that could be fixed that continue to be broken. It may also help if you can see your own faults and stop pushing all of the blame on employees - specifically, ex-employees that can no longer defend themselves. It's childish and ridiculous.
