    Pros

    Good pay, smidge above market.
    Nice offices.
    Good location downtown.
    Financially well managed.

    Cons

    High Tech Company Led by 5 Gray/white haired old men in 60's trapped in past.
    Management looks for who to blame.
    Senior Leadership rewards bullying by directors and managers.
    Leadership by fear and intimidation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owner needs to be more involved in day-to-day. Owner thinks company provides positive environment. Owner should use outside third party to do employee surveys and exit interviews and owner should personally review results. Management hides information from owner.

    Recognize that people need support to take care of personal issues that arise. For example single moms criticized and penalized when school calls and children need picked up.

    Replace president, VP/Directors . . .

    I worked at TelSpan

    Pros

    Great benefits...insurance paid for by company...great location in the heart of downtown.

    Cons

    Very closed minded company...nothing in place to grow or encourage employees. Most companies that have a sales staff also have ongoing contests and other tools in place to motivate the sales staff. This company acts as if it is satisfied with the status quota... The motivation is a meeting where they talk about not ways to improve but how great the competition is doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management staff that can serve as role models instead of people that just like to hang out with each other. The management staff is not capable of teaching any sales techniques because they don't know any...the outside training sessions are a joke.
