    Pros

    Nice buildings and equipment. Most regular people are nice.

    Cons

    Ever since the new CEO tool over in about 2006, its been down hill ever since. Political struggles within the company, cronyism, I never seen so much great talent leave so quickly. Manegment refuses to listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign immediately!

    Pros

    CEO is a capable leader.

    Cons

    Teledyne only cares about profit and treats its BUs as stocks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teledyne should value its employee and also provide assistance for their career development.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Teledyne Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good location. Flexible hours for non-production employees.

    Cons

    Weak management. All departments are not cross functional - everybody's goal should be to ship product out the door but that is not the case. You really have to fight for your own projects to get worked on. Upper management does not resolve people's concerns, including respect in the work place. Many people quit because they don't like working with others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people's concerns and actually care about how people feel and do something about it. If your employees are not happy, do not be surprised if they quit for another job... which has already happened a few times in the short time I've been here.

    Pros

    Recognize hard work and provide a limited incentive for good work. Diverse product offerings. Interesting work and an opportunity to work with customers all over the work.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement. Within this specific division there is a considerable legacy that continues to hinder the growth and success of the company. You need to fight for what you want within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    Benefits, high tech products are interesting. Be careful about which biz unit and market segment you go for though.

    Cons

    Too much CYA. Upper level managers/corporate do not provide real guidance or accept they make decision errors, just state that lower level personnel should have made better presentations when the upper level managers make the wrong decisions. Procedures fit for a much larger company kill the efficiency needed for smaller projects.
    Mismatch in the company procedures and bureaucracy (alot) and money scale (too little) at the local market segment. Execs get promotions in the middle of a RIF.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find people who know commercial products, if you want commercial products, and place them in power. Every layer of management here is steeped in the DoD and govt contracts biz. No clue how to do anything else, so find the clue and bring it in. Take responsibility and lead.
