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

    Test and Measurement Technician (Former Employee) Camarillo, CA

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