entrepreneurism rules

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Teng full-time for more than 8 years

ProsTeng, previous to acquisition by exp, was the most entrepreneurial company I worked for. The organization, compensation, and mentality were focused on allowing each sector leader to build his/her own business unit. The firm grew dramatically over the years I was there.

ConsThe company had one authoritarian leader that was very good at his job but no succession plan, leading to Teng's eventual acquisition. The new management discarded the uniqueness that made Teng successful in order to create a more homogeneous international company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employees need a leader to follow. Uniqueness should be encouraged, not eliminated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Hopefully good changes are on the horizon

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Teng

ProsPurchased by exp US Services. Hopefully, more opportunities will become available. However, a lot of people leaving since business is down.

ConsBenefits are subpar. It is difficult to obtain training. Information is not readily available. One large project is a huge part of the business

Advice to Senior ManagementCome out of your offices and listen to the employees in all of the offices, not just Chicago. There is valuable talent in all locations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Opportunity to work with different departments

Electrical Designer (Former Employee)

I worked at Teng

ProsGreat work environment, nice office space and the ability to work within different departments

ConsEverything is project based; therefore the project managers want extensive hours of work without you billing the project

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. They do a good job securing projects in a downward economy
