Good environment for growth, for the right kind of person

Research Assistant (Current Employee)
College Station, TX

I have been working at TEES full-time for more than a year

ProsResearch budgets are NOT an issue
If you can dream it ( and talk a good game ) you can do it
with so little supervision, you can pursue whatever you like

ConsResearch topics are limited to commercial applicability
Projects tend to take longer than expected
Environment tends to become 'clique' among

Advice to Senior ManagementWe come to work with the worlds best minds, but they are never here!

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

Overally, I liked it!

Research Engineer (Current Employee)
College Station, TX

I have been working at TEES

ProsReputation helps to find the next job, good resources in terms of academia, friendly environment, I had a great boss

Consold management style, very-low interaction (social meeting) between employees and top managers

Advice to Senior ManagementTop managers: It is the time to change a bit to adjust to the current demand of the people. Traditional behaviors some times not working.
My direct adviser: I loved the way you tackle the problems and solve them. Good luck!

Senior management lacks ability to hire people using technical skill sets that match what the role is

Technical Manager (Former Employee)
College Station, TX

I worked at TEES

ProsCollege station is a great location (between Austin & Houston), A&M great university to be part of.

ConsTenure rules even in the technology realm. People that have no real work experience with technology and may be book smart are in leadership positions - but do not know how to apply this knowledge to people and technology roles.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo RFP's for custom software solutions. Somebody needs to be asking questions like is the solution really scalable? How much will this cost the University down the road to maintain? For technology, hire more vendors. Look in the local communities for local talent - don't hire people from outside the USA - and pay extra money for Visa process etc..or feel compelled to keep people because they are friends or have worked with a hiring manager for a long time. Doesn't mean that they are more qualified. More scrutiny in hiring process as well as better planning for technical projects.

Excellent place to develop skills as student researcher

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TEES

Prosworking in graduate research labs is same as everywhere else. it depends on your advisor. Lots of skills can be developed.

Conswork experience here depends on how guiding your advisor is and how motivated you are to work produce results. hence no special downsides.
