    Pros

    Had a good relationship with the staff and customers. Established the Contracts Department, using the skills that I had acquired in the field over the years and from former, current and military education. Started the Department as a one person operation and later acquired employees to assist with the common functions of the Department, while I handled the more complex functions of the Company. The larger more complex contracts, terms and conditions, negotiations with the buyers and their legal team. Negotiated price and type of contract firm-fixed, cost plus, etc. Made sure that All international contracts were in compliance with the ITAR, Department of State and Department of Commerce Regulations. Attended seminars, took certificate classed to make sure that I stayed up to date on current regulations and procedures. Did staff training to ensure compliance with government regulations and all internal ISO procedures.

    Cons

    Time-off policies were standard for an engineering/manufacturing company. The longer you were there the more time off you would accrue. Everybody received a combination of five personal and sick days. Generally I worked about a ten hour day, so my President & CEO occasionally gave me comp. time.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time listening to the employees.

    Pros

    Some of the work they do is really interesting and fairly advanced. There are also a number of talented employees there.

    Cons

    Upper management seems completely out of touch with the employees. The CEO rules with an iron fist, treating workers like children.

    Advice to Management

    For long term growth, I think the company would do well to bring in a new CEO with better leadership skills.


  3. Hostile work environment. I had worked at their company for 3 years.

    Pros

    Good products and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. They refuse to higher contract workers and forbid their full-time employees from seeking contract work. High turnover rate. I have also heard others describe it as a "Sweatshop" and that term really does apply.

    Advice to Management

    Engineers like what they do. Do not make their job more difficult by being addicted to power/control.

    Pros

    Impressive backgrounds of owners and many employees (engineers, advanced degrees from good schools), we were involved with high tech/military jets, held high hopes up to my 3rd day

    Cons

    a wealth of unprofessional behavior, high turnover rate, cheap, very low employee morale, employees being screamed at in front of peers

    Advice to Management

    revisit the professional standards of behavior you were taught at 3M and graduate school, cultivating senior employees requires treating them well, don't use harassment as a bullying tactic, take a leadership class

    Pros

    A great company to work for. Friendly work environment. Care about the employees.
    Plenty of Perks....paid days off during the Holidays and Hurricanes plus free food almost every month.

    Cons

    The company is growing, could use a few more parking spots.
    Otherwise, nothing bad to say about the company,

    Advice to Management

    The management goes out of their way to help employees. Open Door Policy.
    One of the Best.

    Pros

    There are some brilliant people working at TTC, and some of the projects are interesting. You do get the "small company" feel, with the activities planned by the secretaries. Everyone generally at least knows your name or recognizes you. There is a very diverse international culture that is great.

    Cons

    The benefits are terrible. The work/life balance is non-existent. Salaried engineers sometimes have to take unpaid days due to the lack of industry-standard time off. There is zero support for employee development (as in, no incentive to take career enrichment classes, etc.). Communication at TTC between departments (and even in some) is reprehensible. Trying to change anything works at the lowest levels of management, but hits a big brick wall once it percolates to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better! If you want to retain top talent, be more flexible with hours, give standard time off, or at least a better sick and personal time policy. Also, listen to your employees when suggestions are given as to how to improve efficiency.

    Pros

    Solid, stable company. Lot's of work, reasonable schedules, leading edge technology. Great people to work with. Good benefits such as time off (sometimes they give days off unexpectedly or allow you to leave early), bonuses(small), still give out raises every year, great Christmas party!

    Cons

    Basically all upper management are founders, very littte turnover so not a lot of career growyh opportunities. Company communication is very limited. Hardly ever know how our products are doing - good or bad - once they are shipped. Company could spend more on tools, software, equip, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with your employees, celebrate milestones such as product successes. Let the rank and file know when customers are happy (or even unhappy). Give employees better tools and equipment to do their jobs.
