I have been working at Total Phase

Pros

It has a competitive salary for recent college graduates
You are able to speak with the executives very often
The job is really what you make of it
The other employees are really great

Cons

Everybody is very unhappy with the jobs
The management is very, very poor
While you can speak with the executives, it's very clear that they don't care
The products they make are very niche in the test and measurement category but there is insufficient training to understand them very well

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really think you need a better training program to begin new employees with. It is impossible to really understand what we are selling with the current program.

I would also reccomend increased organization. If someone is in charge of a region, they should focus on the region.

    Pros

    * Extremely talented engineering team
    * Co-workers are fun to be around -- both in and out of the office
    * Small team means lots of responsibilities, and plenty of opportunities to significantly contribute to products
    * Small company means you don't have to deal with layers upon layers of management
    * Management is responsive to concerns of its employees, and is always looking for better processes to make the team more efficient and productive
    * Great compensation and benefits

    Cons

    * Although plenty of snacks and drinks are available, most are not very healthy options
    * Can get into situations where there is a lot of task switching

    Former Employee - Sales, Marketing and Business Development Associate in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Total Phase full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -opportunity to wear a lot of different hats - I learned skills I didn't expect to learn, especially for marketing
    -work environment was flexible, easygoing, all employees were friendly and fun
    -team building times were always a blast
    -offers a lot of training opportunities

    Cons

    -there was a lot of talk about how the company is a 'family' and 'there for each other' - before two employees were laid off -- this practice is not atypical, but it contradicted the 'family' values management espoused so much
    -hard to talk to management about concerning issues

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO
