Engineer

Engineer (Current Employee)
Camarillo, CA

I have been working at Teledyne Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTeledyne has good benefits, nice coworkers, and it's close to home. Some real nice front line managers.

ConsCompany is contracting don't see much of a future. They layoff the worker bees and keep all the high paying managers or move them around to other positions. The reward failure (P162 project) to inept managers. Employees who have been contributing for years with tribal knowledge are the first out the door. Teledyne Scientific has been a frontrunner in technology is now contracting if not stagnating

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has been uninspiring and not moving the company forward. Technology is not about counting dollars and cents but an investment for the future.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
