    Pros

    Really nice co-workers and work atmosphere. Great place to start my design career. I had experienced designers in my team to spar ideas with. Fun times!

    Cons

    Things happen really slowly. There are too many manager level people in the company that you need to consult with, to get anything done or approved.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop the design by commitee approach. Nothing good ever gets done if too many people are allowed to interfere with planning and design. Just get two of the best you have to design a project and then let it be implemented. No one else should interfere.

    Pros

    If you are active, you can get to work in a team you are interested in, affecting the work you do. Benefits are average and projects are interesting, influential. People are nice, culture is good.

    Cons

    Openness/transparency is discussed much, but not acted on so much. All kinds of councils and workgroups exist but their decisions are not public. You need to really know people and spend effort to keep up on things.

    Advice to Management

    Open up everything, create less hierarchy which yields better decisions and actual work gets done.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment; global nature; interesting industry; great parent company; financially fit; small enough so that you can know most people; friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Nepotism runs high and deep; "Tekla way" must be understood to enjoy day-to-day work; many "lifers" make it tough for new people to have impact roles

    Pros

    Flex hours can be used to take complete days off. Free gym.

    Cons

    They don't pay enough to keep the good ones, which means the company loses some of their good ones every year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay enough to the ones that are valuable.

    Pros

    In Tekla there is really good work atmosphere and culture. People are nice and work well together. Truly international. Extra curricular activities are supported.

    Bureaucracy is on the rise. New american owners are bringing their own habits and work ethics more and more.

    More convergence between business and development. Innovation should be supported.
