I worked at TestAmerica full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Insurance, benefits, full time work.

Cons

The company is in a bad way financially and is always sacking people. After I got sacked they offered me my job back, (thankfully I didn't take) then shortly they laid off even more people than before.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Um... good luck.

    I have been working at TestAmerica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedule
    lots of vacation time
    you can learn a lot about what not to do in the work place
    you can pick up lots of technical skills from trouble shooting and self training

    Cons

    no raises
    low pay
    too many office politics, micromanaging unimportant stuff
    VERY gossipy staff and office relations among married staff bring moral down
    VERY unprofessional environment
    poor training as managers tend to not know what they are doing
    management creates jobs for their friends, regardless of if they know the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to step in and see what's going on, stop trusting the location supervisors! Complaints get thrown away or you get targetted if you do make a complaint against your manager. Also raises are based on if you are one of the "cool kids" and not on your performance.

    I worked at TestAmerica full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not any these days other than fellow co-workes in the trenches.

    Cons

    This company started going down hill when they merged with STL Laboratories. The nail in the coffin was when they hired James Hyman as CEO. The guy is running the company into the ground and he does not care about the employees at all!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advise needs to go to the investment company that owns TestAmerica. James Hyman is the wrong guy for the job. He may fix your bottom line for now but this company is dying and the emplyees don't want to work there anymore.
