I worked at Tensar full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – A fun company to work for with innovative technologies
Cons – Compensation plan did not make sense. The way it was structured, the more you sold year 1, meant the less you would be paid year 2. This is why I left.
Advice to Senior Management – Compensation plan did not make sense. If you had a very successful year. Your following years sales target was greatly increased so you would have a hard time meeting target the following year. So the more you sell year 1, the less you get paid year 2. This porpoise effect is why I left. In addition, if you did not make 80% of your goal you got nothing for your kicker. This is ridiculous. It means you are providing incentive to sandbag at the end of the year because you are worried they will raise your target so much you won’t be able to make 80% the following year.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Advice to Senior Management – None.

I have been working at Tensar
Pros – The benefits of Tensar are good and Senior Management does not micro manage. Depending upon your position you may receive exposure to a lot challenging situations.
Cons – The new location of Tensar is commuting challenge. The communication of Senior Management with the employees is extremely poor. Tensar has recognized that this is problem but has taken steps to resolve this issue.

I have been working at Tensar
Pros – Excellent products, engineering and customer service from a technology leader.
Cons – (1) Hard to get a promotion or transfer. (2) Salaries are below average imo. (3) Atlanta head office doesn't support the field. Heavy overhead. The rest of us are always the first to blame and the first to be let go while HQ protects their own and has its head in the clouds. (4) Seperate business lines adds overhead, beuracracy, friction and duplication of jobs. We're too small to have seperate sales, marketing, engineering, and so many VPs and Presidents, etc! Nobody wants to deal with it and each protects his own turf. Oh well, the legacy of the technology and good margins helps cover up the flaws, at least for now.
Advice to Senior Management – Be more pro-active and realistic about the situation we are in. MAke some hard decisions. Set an example and cut costs yourselves instead of pushing everything on the rest of the company. Admit that we don't need so many seperate organizations and bosses. Take the savings and pocket 3/4 and give 1/4 to the performers. Ask us for input now and then.
