Pros

Great collegial staff, faith based organization. Decent technology, modest benefits, plenty of free parking, interesting business model. Flexible working hours, casual dress.

Cons

Struggling to gain market share in a niche marketplace, some members of management at director level are inexperienced. Significant attrition at senior technologist levels.

Advice to Management

Focus on selling what you can deliver, not a pie in the sky solution. Invest in training your remaining staff.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technical staff that likes to teach
    Access to good technology
    Immaculate data centers
    Friendly co-workers
    Free coffee
    Exposure to technology that is more high tech than most in the region and for the size

    Cons

    Horrible communication, especially from senior management down
    Out right and open dishonesty from some in management positions
    Not enough staffing in technologist positions (because turn over is too high)
    Management likes to take credit and shift blame

    Advice to Management

    Stop shifting seats on a sinking ship and thinking that it will make it stay afloat

    There is over 30% turnover, at least acknowledge that there is a problem.

    Communicate, not talk, communicate. There is a difference. Talking is just making noise. Communication is doing it with actual thought and intent.

    Reign in the people that need to be reigned in...people should be able to disagree with someone that has the word "Director" in their title without being shouted down in a room full of their peers.

    Listen to your employees. Listening does not mean that you have to agree or make a change, but it does convey that you at least care

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Terenine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great community of middle and lower end employees
    Advanced technology

    Cons

    Use of Christian faith to entice employees to "feel good" about working for a payday loan company.
    Upper Management (at the time) basically ran everyone off who had a brain.
    Customer base was dwindling drastically.
