I have been working at Tait Towers full-time (More than a year)
Everyone here is brilliant. You're never far from a subject expert who will blow your mind with their expertise, regardless of if you're internally or externally facing.
TAIT is cutting edge in almost every way. If you're interested in pushing boundaries or living of the precipice of innovation this is the place for you.
This is a place where your opinion can be valued and your ideas can be set into motion if you're brave enough to voice them. No one is going to do that for you, though. It's entirely dependent on your willingness to be a part of the conversation.
Things move fast here. If you're not ready to drop in at a full sprint you'll find yourself overwhelmed very quickly.
If you're looking for a cookie cutter, standard, safe corporate experience then you probably don't want to be at TAIT. This place pushes you to perform at your highest level from the get go, which is pretty intimidating at first, but it also means you experience more growth in the first six months than most people do in their first two years. It also means you have to be ready and willing to come up with answers and solutions yourself instead of relying on a guide book.
Advice to Management
Change is hard, but there have been a number of important changes in the last few months that have already made a noticeable difference in the atmosphere. Keep listening to what your people want and need and things will only keep getting better.
I applied online. I interviewed at Tait Towers (Lititz, PA) in June 2017.
Began with first a phone interview. This then proceeded to an onsite interview which lasted approximately 4 hours. These four hours were split up between five groups of people. The first being one of the design leads. During our conversation he talked down to me rather to me which was rather frustrating. The second was two of their department heads. They were really nice and asked questions about my design experience, what my dream job was, and just made you feel welcome. The Third Person was the head of their new department building onsite stages. His interview was short but he asked about my inventor experience and such. They fourth group was their two lead designers. They wanted to know my experience with AutoCAD and were overall very down to earth. Before the last person I took a personality test. The interview then ended with a quick HR interview. They promised to let you know either way but that did not happen.
