Managers lack management skills

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TMW Systems full-time

ProsAdequate salary. Adequate PTO. Complimentary fruit.

ConsA lack of cohesiveness, teamwork and job satisfaction.

Some of the managers including directors have been there much too long and are incompetent as managers. They do not welcome change and sorely lack fundamental management skills. They do not know how to successfully manage and lead their staff. The incompetent managers create and foster a hostile working environment. As a result, the staff suffers emotionally and productively. Valuable employees leave out of frustration and resentment.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeniority does not make a good manager. Just because someone has several years of product knowledge, does not mean they have the ability to successfully manage and lead others. Incompetent management stifles productivity and growth. TMW needs good, competent leaders in order to continue growing.

Recognize the incompetent managers and remove them from the company for the sake of their staff and the company. Hire managers from outside of the company to bring in fresh, new, innovative ideas. Provide a required management training series of courses for all management staff. Provide required soft skills training for all employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Poor management.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TMW Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPay is fine, vacation time is generous.

ConsCompany keeps bad managers in place, even when they know they are problematic. Work environment is often hostile and extremely frustrating. Overall atmosphere is one of distrust.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis company chooses their managers by how long they have been there. It does not result in good management, it results in managers who hold on to old methods and are unable to innovate or improve processes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Senior Management is rude and uncaring. Its all about the money they can make

Implementer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

Conducive Environment to be productive and everyone is your friend

Software Development Intern (Former Employee)

Not a bad tech company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at TMW Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood medical benefits, good vacation benefits. Above average chances for advancement with time and hard work. Average flexibility in telecommuting. Many employees are genuinely happy to work there, and have enthusiasm for what they do.

Above average employee retention, and pretty low turnover.

They have an XBox 360 and a Foosball table at one Ohio location.

ConsSometimes a hands off management style leads to crisis management, lack of long term planning.Like any mid+ company, starting to become weighed down by internal processes and empire building. Some employees are allowed - due to lack of oversight - create processes and methods critical for success without documentation for other employees to be able to back up methods.

Advice to Senior ManagementClearly delineated goals, employee duties, and organizational charts would help employees find the right team to ask questions and to work with.

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

Very mismanaged company

Implementation Consultant (Current Employee)
Beachwood, OH

I have been working at TMW Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVacation time of 4 weeks...advancement opportunity

ConsPay is very low compared to the market, so I was surrounded by average to below average co workers. Nice enough, but incompetent in many aspects. Bit of a good old boy network and longer tenured employees were protected, even though they couldn't perform the job very well. When questioned, answer was "we can't afford to pay quality people, so let's continue to try to work with what we have."

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up the budget to get quality people. Some need to get a backbone and clean house with the lower quality staff.

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