    Pros

    Although things happen slowly, things do happen, and employees are generally empowered to initiate change and progress. It is fun to come to work. The people at TAIS are easy going. The company does many things to foster employee moral and a feeling of family.

    Cons

    Things happen slowly. There are lots of very hardened silos which are hard to break down to get collaboration. Raises are hard to come by. The MBO program is antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos. A cost of living raise is not a merit increase.

    A good place to work but not very loyal to hard working employees.

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with and are easy to get along with. Employees have yearly reviews. Most managers understand there is more to life than work. Most managers, including senior management, have an "open door" policy.

    Cons

    One VP has a habit of watching the parking lot to see who leaves before 5:00. It didn't matter what time you arrived to work - he felt anyone leaving before 5:00 was cheating the company. He was also known to send out "scouts", when he was not in town, to monitor when people arrived and left work. In all fairness, only one VP has this reputation. Company policy did not always match department policy.

    Advice to Management

    Some departments seem to be top-heavy with management - Senior VP, VP, Directors, Sr Managers, Managers. Departments appear to be under staffed / over-worked compared to number of managers.

    Pros

    LOTS of freedom. No one really watches the clock here. Need to go to Dr, kids performance or just about anything else. As long as your work is getting done no problem!

    Cons

    Upward mobility is EXTREMELY difficult. You can expect best case you will be promoted one level from where you came in - perhaps in 5-10 years. By far most people don't move up. Very much a silo organization. Not much synergy between groups and departments

    Advice to Management

    Need to get groups working together. Increase morale as well.

    Pros

    I worked for TAIS for almost three years. During my time there I enjoyed my job and the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to get things accomplished in a timely manner as many people are "afraid" to speak up.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the line of communications from all employees without fear they will be reprimanded.

    Pros

    Great People, dedicated, hard working and all have the desire to contribute and work to make the company shine and be profitable. Talented with commitment to the company.

    Cons

    Focused only on PC with all other product groups getting little support. Trapped in managing all areas thru Japan and their antiquated processes that move to slow for he CE industry. Low morale as the senior management does very little to improve the work environment. Willing to force employees to either take it as is or you can head out the door.

    Advice to Management

    With those that are remaining or choose to stay, do more to improve the work environment since it is all the employees have. They are working under extreme pressure while under resourced in a lot of areas. Restructuring the organization every 6 months is not helping the employees to better enjoy coming to work.
