    I worked at Tecta America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A number of locations ( referred internally as "Operating Units") have a good reputation in their respective markets. Corporate spends a lot of money on marketing & advertising.

    Cons

    Company has strayed far from its roots as it has significantly sacrificed field crew training (the actual roofers and supervisors), equipment upkeep, and continued professional education (code requirements, material science, safety regs, new technology). Biggest Con - They have lost most of their best people and have not been able to recoup.

    Pros

    your check wont bounce. benefits ok. leadership fair to ok at different times. senior management ok at different times. there are a few good people there that are honest.

    Cons

    senior management due to ages and no real field experience and they leave it up to old school experience to do what they should know. raises few and far between dealing with people that do not speak our language and have no pride in what and how they do it.

    Advice to Management

    senior management with any company should have field experience.

    I have been working at Tecta America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Like the people in our office a lot. They have taught me quite a bit about the industry and how to source new leads.

    Cons

    Commission structure is not defined well when coming in. Was promised a good commission structure if I kept on track with my sales goals. Have not received a dollar in commissions since I have come on board. Currently I am on track to reach my sales goal.

    Advice to Management

    There is a separation between Corporate and each individual operating unit.


  9. TectaAmerica corporation nationally is a well run business that results in a challenging but fun place to work.

    Pros

    TectaAmerica has good competent leadership at the corporate level nationally and there is a wealth of training opportunities for all positions including best practice studies and implementation.

    Cons

    Local unit management can and does vary widely in style and unity. Their are limited advancement opportunities and it can be a very high pressure place to work.


  10. It has been a great place to learn and grow professionally.

    Pros

    Tecta America is well respected within the roofing industry nationwide.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack in direction for the people in the sales function of this company. You tend to find yourself taking on many tasks that fall outside of the sales role.

    Advice to Management

    Streamlining communications needs to be a task that is taken very seriously. There seems to be a disconnect at times between the operating units and the corporate level.


  11. Tecta is a very interesting place to work based on how the company was formed.

    Pros

    Senior management is, overall, the most qualified group that I have seen in several companies where I have worked. The management at the operating unit level are a great bunch of people. The work environment is one where everyone respects each other and no one acts better than the others..

    Cons

    The recession has impacted the ability to get any kind of a substantial raise in the last couple of years and bonuses, for the most part, have been non-existent. Hopefully, this will change as the economy improves.

    Advice to Management

    An personal comment to people who are doing a great job would be appreciated - some people feel as they are never noticed while others are perceived at the "stars"
