    I worked at Teledyne Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has a very competitive benefit program.
    It is a good learning experience, but don't stay there too long if you want to promote your career.
    They pay their administrative staff pretty decently.

    Cons

    My immediate Supervisor was too busy with day-to-day activities to thoroughly vent all the issues on my desktop and she did not provide me with the proper resources to do my job optimally.
    My immediate Supervisor did not have my back and did not buffer me from upper management requests at all.
    Many acquisitions required heavy workload influx on your desktop and you were not duly compensated for it.
    They run severely streamline in terms of their staffing and do not promote from within.
    Your home vs. work life balance is non-existent, it's all work and absolutely no play.
    You work more than 50 hours a week as a mainstay and rarely take a lunch.
    The corporate structure is extremely difficult to navigate and their systems are not integrated at all.
    The Corporate office is gross, they are old buildings that are falling apart at the seams.
    Their training is non-existent, you have to rebuild your position from the ground up.
    Request a job description and if management wants you to work on additional projects, make sure you work within the parameters of your job description and tell them "No!" for extra projects that don't pertain to your job description unless they agree to compensate you for it.
    There were numerous times when the right hand did not know what the left hand was doing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people!
    Get a different physical Corporate office space where staff members can more easily communicate with one another to build a more cohesive team and enjoyable working environment.
    Let staff members evaluate their immediate supervisor confidentially and base some of their annual merit increase on the staff member's evaluations of their performance.
    Train your supervisors on people skills.
    Listen to your staff members, many times we go unheard.
    Provide a decent Christmas party where everyone is invited so that corporate staff can meet one another.
