Great company to work with

Friendly colleagues
Flexible working hours
Solid technology
Paid OT for staff
Company has a solid 50 year contract, which means the company will be there for a while

ConsLow rating on Work life balance (not for everyone though)

Overall good place to work

Title Certification Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Teranet

ProsTeranet offers tuition reimbursement for those employees who are interested in personal development. The company prided itself on delivering on its promises. Some managers make sure that you know what is expected of you and your deadline to deliver and then allow you to decide on how you will manage your time to be successful in the completion.

ConsSome managers insisted on micro managing. Instead of allowing the employees to work at their own pace and prioritize their work to their own style, management would insist on setting the rules. For example if an employee was most alert in the morning and wanted to do the work that required the most focus and concentration some managers would interfere and demand that the morning hours be used for other tasks.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall Teranet was a great place to work. Senior management was very approachable and went out of their way to assist employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
