    Pros

    Competetive salary, comfortable work environment, good leadership

    Cons

    Not very work from home friendly, long hours seem to be the norm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set the expectation that you go home after 8 hours so you don't feel overworked.

    I worked at Tektronix Texas full-time

    Pros

    At least in my department, people are generally good & knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Things were better under Rick Wills.
    Since the acquisition by Danaher, constant layoff, too focus on money at expense of long term vision and good people.
    Lack of advancement. Not innovative. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need long term vision

    Pros

    Fast Paced cutting edge technology. Job security a plus.

    Cons

    Extremely high expectations regarding workload and number of hours worked. Reluctant to hire hard working and loyal contractors to permanent full time positions. Some Senior Managers have little or no technical background and struggle to relate and understand the efforts put forth by front line System Engineers. "Raises" are laughable and hardly enough to cover the average cost of living increases such as fuel and energy costs (that doesn't seem to be an issue for the folks in sales however).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember people have lives outside of the work environment too. As the IT & Telecom industry begins to recover, employees will flock to their previous employers by the masses, it's already happening.

    Pros

    The company had very good benefits. Also, the people there were very friendly and easy to work with. Lots of knowledgeable people work there.

    Cons

    The company has cubicles now which I do not like. The environment is not very open anymore. They seem to micromanage everything you do
