    Pros

    Not pros many pretty much going down hill fast. Lots of mandatory time off. Then tons of overtime to meet end of month goals. Unprofessional co workers.

    Cons

    The most unhealthy work environment I have ever worked at

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your managers. Most are just scared to speak up for fear of losing their job. The others are just biding time until they can retire and don't really care about doing a good job.

    Pros

    some dedicated employees, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    poorly managed, favoritism, 20 year old products inferior to competitors, uses blame game as excuse, high turnover of experienced staff. Refuse to listen to employees suggestions for improvement, relying on old fashioned intimidation management by unqualified managers. No career growth potential, more concerned about meeting revenue targets than quality has put them behind competitors.

    Advice to Management

    innovate products, retain experienced staff, modernize the management, forget about culture training and focus on customer needs over sales quotas

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible schedule, and a family-like feel with friendly and competent coworkers. There are many people who work here for decades, and Teledyne is pretty good about moving people to other areas of the company if a group shuts down.

    Cons

    Old-style stuffy corporate culture in my part of the company. Teledyne tries to make global rules that govern all 50+components of the conglomerate but the rule actually stifle productivity in our area. Incredibly budget conscious, to the point that small purchases that would help productivity are nearly impossible to get. Has the attitude that as long as we are building hours to the customer, it doesn't matter how efficient we are. Many Teledyne policies are similarly short sighted.

    Advice to Management

    Try asking for input directly from lower level employees rather than dictating rules without understanding how they will be implemented. Make it easier for employees to suggest improvements to efficiency even if it means billing less hours, because long term our reputation is more valuable.

    decent company to work for

    Pros

    decent salary and benefits and gives you room to grow and move up in the company and has tuition assistance in the engineering department

    Cons

    salaries could be more competitive and they tend to have a very high turn over rate in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    needs to utilize six sigma processes to improve how they do things, and they need to be more accessible to their workers
