Pros

TexelTek is a company focused on delivering innovative technical solutions to challenging problem sets. This company focuses on providing an employee friendly workplace environment that makes it a fun and exciting place to work. The people that make up the company represent the best in the industry. The capabilities that this company delivers are truly impressive.

Cons

TexelTek is a fast past company and is not for the faint at heart. If you are considering working here, be prepared to hit the ground running. The work is exciting but the learning curve can be steep. Slackers need not apply.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work!

    I worked at TexelTek full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, Great benefits, Company picnics in the summer and winter, spacious working area with many perks. For those who work there, the company works hard to make sure you're physically comfortable with new computers, office furniture, new kitchens filled with snacks, waffle-makers, and FREE bagels every Friday. Excellent place to work if you are a software developer.

    Cons

    The Cons far outweigh the Pros for TexelTek. The company is incredibly mismanaged. Those in management positions rarely have any experience being a manager or supervisor and so problems aren't handled fairly, those in leadership positions will often push disciplinary responsibilities on to those who should not be doing them. Problems and harassment-cases are ignored. Negative behavior is promoted. The company is unprofessional and strives to keep that reputation. In the community, TexelTek has a negative reputation and they counter it with an attitude that everyone who does not work for them is ignorant and incompetent.

    Even though TexelTek is supposed to work with an Agile Development process, they hardly do. Development usually consisted of people rushing to complete projects or just doing whatever they felt like. The team constantly shuffled around Product Owners due to the high-stress environment and the honoring of Software Developers over the Subject Matter Experts.

    The environment is generally stressful and hostile. Employees are on edge, always acting like someone is out to get them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if the management actually meant what they said when they say "We're a family." I would suggest that they also put more effort into creating a professional work environment if they actually want to get things done.

    Possibly a good oppourtunity

    I worked at TexelTek

    Pros

    Offers excellent benefits, comfortable workplace, work that is important in the industry. Very competitive salaries. They often promote from within as well as offering bonuses for employee referrals. Agreed that it is a place with high expectations, but might be a good oppourtunity for motivated individuals who really know their stuff!

    Cons

    Changes in structure and policies have changed the environment and vision of the company which made it a difficult transition for some employees. Not always very clear communication within the company. There has also been a fair bit of turnover.
