    Former Employee - IT Intern in Chagrin Falls, OH

    I worked at TMW Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of high level software to work with. The company has a solid foundation in the market and I believe will continue to do so for some time. They are owned by Trimble.
    You also get to meet a lot of people in the company which will allow you to move horizontally.

    Cons

    The atmosphere was a typical office environment. Most of the people there were nice, but they weren't friendly. I can't say I'd like to go back and visit my old bosses.

    I have been working at TMW Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great PTO - 4 weeks starting in your first year.

    Cons

    terrible cubicles that are 4 foot high dividers. and only on three sides. too open for concentration not the working conditions a DEVELOPER NEEDS. MINIMAL QUICK n Dirty training. Better learn fast because people there dont like to repeat themselves. If you dont get it all in the first run through - tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    correct the cubicle issue. put it back to how it used to be in 2013 (when productivity was better). And start telling the senior and midlevel developers they are REQUIRED to teach the new people. and that teaching isnt just saying something once and you're done.

    Very revenue driven (to the point of less than ethical business practices with their clients and employees)

    Managers lack management skills

    I worked at TMW Systems full-time

    Pros

    Adequate salary. Adequate PTO. Complimentary fruit.

    Cons

    A 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 ManagementAdvice

    Seniority 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.

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

    Pros

    Pay is fine, vacation time is generous.

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    This 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.

    Pros

    Lots of growth happening, new product line is impressive.

    Cons

    Still defining some of their career advancement plans - it's not very clear what the next step is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start developing career advancement plans for everyone - gives people an idea of where they're going and what they need to do to move up.
