    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at TESSCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, room for growth, pretty good pay, and everyone is more than willing to help you. Great place to start your career.

    Cons

    Some managers have no idea what they are doing, they promote the wrong people, and they micro manage. Its a good place to start your career but most people leave within 1-3 years

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing things in certain departments. Upper management needs to stop changing the business structure all the time. Let employees know when someone is doing a good job.

    I worked at TESSCO full-time

    Pros

    Training for future jobs at other companies is great. Take what you learn here and get paid more for it elsewhere.

    Cons

    Upper management can't decide how to run company and is constantly readjusting company structure to previously failed methods. CEO refuses to retire and dismisses new ideas. Trust in company lost after sudden layoff of good employees in January 2015, causing many other employees to quit since then, and continuing. Low pay, no respect, cowardly business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    ISO certified so they have strict processes which can be good. Never get emails after work or on weekends. So good work/life balance

    Cons

    The strict processes are also bad though. This makes it hard to complete sales in a timely manner

    I worked at TESSCO full-time

    Pros

    Employees from middle management and below are bright, passionate and fully capable to increase productivity if not micro-managed

    Cons

    Upper Management / CEO is adverse to change and relies on historical data versus current market trends.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight and reach your decisions in a collaborative and not dictatorial fashion.
