    I have been working at Radio Systems Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dogs at work, people, management seems to care, good support for engineering in terms of equipment and technicians. Founder is a good guy, running for Governor of TN

    Cons

    Travel to China (good and bad), technology is not leading edge, open office structure is hard to get used to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It’s time to build another building soon and more parking.

    Pros

    Quick hire turn around time

    Cons

    They fired me for being tardy to training even though I was doing well in class. Their reason was "sorry it's just business". I had to be late to take care of saving my car from getting repossessed.

    Advice to Management

    One of your values is having a win-win-win environment. Maybe try anyway practicing it instead of just putting up a front. I've worked at some of the worst call centers in Knoxville and they treated me better than this company.

    Pros

    RSC does a lot of philanthropy, lots of opportunities for fun and beer at work. Yearly bonuses. Better than other companies I've worked for. Dogs in the office is a benefit you get nearly nowhere else. Some departments allow some ability to work-at-home.

    Cons

    Open office environment doesn't fit everyone's needs. Interruptions reduce productivity drastically. Catastrophic health insurance isn't what you would expect a company of this size to offer its employees. If you are in a "support" department rather than a revenue-producing department you are bound to be shorthanded and under-funded. Like most companies of this size and larger, there are plenty of political games. Compensation for many areas is quite low.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want the company to be built to last then allow then don't understaff and underfund the support teams that enable them to do their jobs. Ditch the open office concept and let each department do what works for them. Take care of the employees with better compensation to reduce the growing turnover. Give people a reason to stay.

    Pros

    The attention provided to my on boarding and continuous follow up has been incredible. It is all about the employee, from unbelievable benefits, competitive pay and the team mentality that is more than a break room poster narrative! The company provides accessibility to all levels of management and truly values me as an employee. The pride and competence of the folks within the organization is displayed by performance and positive attitude. The ability to perform with excellent tools, systems products and support contribute to my personal success, promote our product and create a environment of success

    Cons

    That it took me so long to find this job!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great model and strategy that Have created a winning environment!

    Pros

    This place is a great company to work for there are a lot of perks as well as great people here. you can bring your dogs to work and everyone is Honest here, which is hard to find in any large company.

    Cons

    The lack of communication between managers is sad, but compared to my other job it is a lot better. When hired on, you get told one thing but your manager tells you another thing different. It makes it hard to follow with what is actually right or not.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on communication between departments. HR should say the same thing as the managers and vice versa.

    Pros

    Being a part of such a collaborative & positive team has been a great experience. There is so much knowledge to gain from any aspect of business. Radio Systems Corporation is made of up of some of the best out there.

    Cons

    To be honest, I've worked at several similar size companies and none compare to the vision and culture of Radio Systems. Where there are gaps, senior leadership takes a genuine interest in filling them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Continue to search for new ways to incentivize and motivate the team that is the driving force behind RSC!
