Old company that is still very driven by the old paradigms of corporate structure

Keep shielding your staff from the corporate bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Clearly advise on concerns, both negative and positive. It helps all individuals grow to contribute successfully. Conduct/ allow some peer training. Keep regions separated as outlined: territory building suffers if spread out to keep busy.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Teledyne Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you're an unemployed software engineer and you need a job immediately, they need you.

    Cons

    Company lacks any formal project development documentation guidlines or standards. When you start at Teledyne no one knows exactly what the current project is supposed to do, the project is conceptualized only in vagua terms with a rough concept of functionality. Instead of determining program specs, management will expect you to endlessly make program changes while they try each new version and decide what to change. No clear project concept, so no direct progression to completed project. All projects become late and frusterating. Zero job satisfaction.
    Of four software engineer positions at the Mason OH site, three have been vacated this year.

    Advice to Management

    At project start, you should sit down and determine the parameters of the final project, how it should function, what it should do and how it should look. Then let your people work to complete the job.
