I worked at TestAmerica full-time (less than a 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.

    Good for starting your career, but not worth staying

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

    Pros

    Good entry level experience and friendly people. Pretty flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Raises don't exist, benefits have decreased drastically (cut our holidays in half, increased insurance prices, no more bonuses). Limited room for mobility. The CEO admits he doesn't care about the employees and "if you don't like it, there's the door."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show the employees some appreciation or they won't stay for much longer.

    I worked at TestAmerica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - large lab network with diverse capabilities
    - the company's past reputation looks good on your resume as you pursue getting out

    Cons

    - morale is in free fall and this is reflected in staff turnover, decreased client responsiveness, and less attention to quality, while at the same time asking more and more from the staff
    - a focus on decreasing costs through deferred raises and limiting benefits
    - the senior management group that has evolved has caused a culture change and a perceived lack of constructive leadership that the staff will trust and follow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ownership may wish to consider significant management restructuring before it is too late.
