    Current Employee - Engineer in Whitesboro, NY

    I have been working at Tect full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A handful of skilled workers that keep the place open.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Managers out for individual bonus and not team work.Too many old employees that are decision makers need to retire! I never worked for a company where the HR and comptroller were vocal in daily manufacturing decisions. No investment into facility. Rain from outside poors on to floors and machines inside. Dirty facility. Constantly lie to customers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your selfish managers. Hire staff. You operate WAY to lean. You can not fire third shift supervisor and ask salary staff to fill in for supervision duties. Very poor treatment of staff.

    I worked at Tect full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A handful of highly skilled workers keeping the place running. The rest are mediocre.

    Cons

    Total chaos in the management. High turnover, low talent & skill. Needs completely revamped. 12+ hours a day, sometimes 7 days a week. Excessive expectations from hourly & salaried employees. The pay is decent, but stress level is off the scale. Benefit package is poor from a cost perspective. As for corporate mgmt, well, you'll get what you deserve, eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Been there too long. Retire. Old & set in their ways. Make way for fresh ideas or die. Stop the chaos. You're killing everybody. The employees are your only asset. Make procedures/practices & live by them.

    Not Organized At All

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer in Thomasville, GA

    I worked at Tect

    Pros

    Company pays decent. Time off requests are usually no issue.

    Cons

    A company as large as this one should have more thorough procedures and policies, especially when it comes to IT. Management are litterally comprised of the old boys network as hardly anyone knows what it is like to work for another company since they all started there in 1980. Change is NOT in the vocabulary of most people there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either roll with the times and get updated or retire. Nothing wrong with moving slow, but business is like a shark: stop swimming and you die.

    I have been working at Tect

    Pros

    *A lot of room from improvement
    *Decent compensation relevant to competitors
    *Unlimited overtime if you want it
    *Results oriented workplace
    *Excellent school compensation package

    Cons

    *Very old-school "get it out of the door" mentality
    *Very long hours are expected, sometimes 12 hour days 7 days per week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on continuous improvement and getting to the root cause of the problems, not just fire-fighting.

    Positive Outlook
