    I worked at Teledyne Technologies

    Pros

    good company I thought, many people from other companies had merged a few years ago seems like. from the time I worked there as a contract employee in 2011.

    Cons

    Why when they have Quality positions available, why they keep rejecting me to work for them?
    I was told that I did well when I was working as a contract employee for a month. They keep rejecting me I think I being discriminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and accept people, no matter what the outer shell is, I have the experience and knowledge. for Quality Incoming, in process, and final inspection. My qualifications did match there positions that are now open.

    Pros

    Overall, I am pleased with work-life balance compare to other similar type of jobs. A friendly and professional environment. I had an understandable manager whom I enjoyed working with. Benefits are fair.

    Cons

    Compensation is bit on the low side. Limited growth and career mobility within the company. There is lack of transparency on direction with personnel and goal of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency

    I have been working at Teledyne Technologies

    Pros

    Monday through Friday. Decent pay. The people that are in different areas are more helpful than the people in your area!

    Cons

    Limited training. High school all over again. No real direction. Petty females that are very clickish. Either you are one of "the girls" or you are an outcast!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the new hires. Don't just throw the at someone who doesn't want to train them without treating them like they are s lesser human being!

    Depending on the department, there's not much possibility for advancement.

    Former Employee - Test and Measurement Technician in Camarillo, CA
    Former Employee - Test and Measurement Technician in Camarillo, CA

    I worked at Teledyne Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Relaxed atmosphere: Managers allow flexible schedules for employees that are attending school.
    - Friendly Co-Workers: Everyone is friendly with each other, jovial atmosphere.
    - Competitive pay scale: most likely based on the cost of living for Ventura County, but the wages are better for comparable positions offered in Los Angeles County.
    - Great benefits: Blue Shield PPO, flexible spending accounts, Healthcare savings accounts, lots of options are offered.

    Cons

    -Silo effect among the divisions. No communication or sharing of resources among work groups. Many problems could be solved if program managers simply talked to each other.
    -"Us versus them" mentality amongst the divisions: some divisions have a "were better than you" attitude.
    -Smaller divisions have limited operating budget and no possibility for advancement: in some divisions, don't count on getting promoted unless someone leaves, dies, or retires.
    -Limited possibilities for intra-divisional transfers. Qualified employees that wish to transfer to a new open position within Teledyne are ignored in favor of new-hires off the street.
    -Some divisions are vulnerable to government sequestration (layoffs): 80% of Teledyne's divisions are almost entirely dependent on government funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front with new hires about the possibilities for career advancement.
