    Great people with an increasingly out of touch management.

    I have been working at Tapestry Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun projects, smart people, flexible work environment.

    Cons

    The old engineer-centric culture under FSG in the Midwest is being subverted into a Dilbertesque parody of itself. If you can keep HR and upper management off your back this can still be a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good people make a good company. You are driving away talent and inspiring the rest of us to insipid performance due to generally treating your "greatest resource" as just that: another resource to be exploited.

    Intriguing before the company was bought by Boeing.

    Pros

    Great group of people who try and comply with the wants of management.

    Cons

    The purchase of the company by Boeing turned it into a split entity. Not having the full support or access to much of what Boeing has as a company, Tapestry employees are left to suffer the whims of a big company and many people are working in fear of the loss of their livelihood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get control of your ship.

    Pros

    Employees are great, dedicated, and willing to help each other. The company is well run. It is growing and there are opportunities in many different locations worldwide.

    Cons

    Depending on the position and the contract that you support, the travel can be frequent. Some field support personnel will travel well over 50% of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing. Expand the customer base beyond the military.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules

    Half of the development side always has the lights off. It sometimes made me sleepier than I should have been.

    Keep up the great work. Continue to stay involved with the students.

    Company struggling to grow-up

    Pros

    The people are great at Tapestry.

    Cons

    The company is facing more complex challenges than what the current leadership is capable of handling. They need to hire business leaders vs. their former buddies from the service. When they do that, they only add to the problems vs. lead us to a better place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Sr. Leadership with past experience in performing the job vs. hiring your former buddy from the service.

    I worked at Tapestry Solutions

    Pros

    Great place for someone who loves challenging tasks in dynamic environment. Excellent VPN coupled with high performance Dell laptop enables you to work anywhere and anytime. They paid 100% of medical insurance. They had the end of year bonus as well as instance reward. Family like environment where everyone is helping each other. Wonderful year end party at a top hotel with unlimited drinks until 2:00am and a quest room, and so on.

    Cons

    They use their own proprietary kernel for software development which can kill your skill slowly over the time.
