    I have been working at Teknion

    Pros

    Not a stressful work environment. No negative consequences for bad performance. No overtime expected. Acceptable for projects to be delayed. You can “coast” here and it is tolerated

    Cons

    Very low employee morale. Jobs functions are divided in a way making them too narrow focused, repetitive, and unchallenging. Weak Management, no clear vision, decisions typically made emotionally rather than logically. Very disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire “dead wood” employees that have a negative attitude, poor work ethic and are underperformers. Reward and frequently-openly recognize your employees’ efforts, especially the good performers. Provide feedback on company goals and solicit feedback. (The last 2 sentences rarely take place here).

    I worked at Teknion

    Pros

    The employees but not upper management.

    Cons

    No recognition for going the extra mile. No written sick days policy. Three weeks vacation after 5 years and 4 weeks vacation after 12 years. Very low employee moral. No "socializing" allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet with employees before laying them off, specially those that have been with the company for a long time. Letting go of someone for non business reasons is absolutely wrong and demoralizing.
