    Amazing longevity in a volatile industry.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsThe company has weathered numerous downturns in the economy over 25 years and emerged stable and positioned for growth every time. This is a testament to the great quality staff.....many with 10 - 15 years of tenure and more. Many employees who have left to pursue advancement with competitors have come back.

    ConsDue to the small size and constant adjustments to the changing economic conditions there seems to be a constant state of growing pains. There also seems to always be more work than available hands necessary to get everything done optimally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore and clearer communications from senior management on the direction of the company and more line level decision making authority would help many of the day to day challenges.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good at first then suffered at the hands of new managers

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNot much to say. Office culture at times was horrible due to a few individuals. Vacation and benefits are good.

    ConsMake sure your starting salary is good as you will not get much else after.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great opportunity, limited by legacy employee's.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI love the opportunity to grow, learn and be utilized in many different roles.

    ConsOffice politics, combative personalities, scared, uneducated, uninformed and overpaid VP's make a bad working environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean out the employees that aren't contributing. Many positions are redundant, while others are necessary and not being filled. Do not trust the "managers". Many times they are only interested in saving their own skin and increasing their bottom line. Promote from within and don't allow people from the outside to come in and command higher wages than the individuals who have been loyal to the company and have the companies best interest in mind.

    Poor Management

    Accounting (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsExperience with Timberline and government projects. Project management personnel were very cooperative. Had a good deal of government projects that assured stability

    ConsWhen problems were brought to managements attention they weren't even investigated. So you either play by there rules or you are let go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly can't think of anything to say that I hadn't already said. Maybe it has changed over the years but while I was there I felt a sense of dishonesty that made me very uncomfortable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Regretful

    Purchasing (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsThe owner is a kind man.

    ConsThe owner is generous to a fault. The executives will be his end.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire 95% of the upper management and the executive two faced bullies and the company will breath fresh air and while you are at it, clean out the complacent dead wood...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company with so much potential.

    Operations (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsTalented, skilled and certified employees in their respective fields. Plenty of room for advancement. Above average compensation. Training opportunities are limited but if you excel and commit to a training path most of management will support you. Very hands on type of owner that truly does care for his employees. Phenomenal benefits package for permanent employees eg; generous 401k, 12 paid holidays just to name a few. Definitely a merit based company.

    ConsSenior management is very protective of their positions, a select few will literally not acknowledge a "lower level" employee even in good morning type of pleasantries. Multiple VP's for same positions which makes chain of command a little complex. One particular VP has been responsible for their extremely high turn over rate of well qualified personnel.
    Sales and Operations seems to have a tick more separation and dissention than normal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust the privileged VP's mindset. Close the gap between grossly over paid and grossly underpaid for the same positions. Longevity should only hold a few perks. Flush out the legacy people that aren't earning their paychecks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
