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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time with TAPE, they were kind and understanding, if you are a solid employee they do their best to take care of you and look at for you.

    Cons

    There is very, very little interaction between management and employees on a contract. On the contract I was on, there was no opportunity for raises even if you had a perfect annual review.

    Advice to Management

    I know contracting is all over the place but as much as possible, it may be valuable to attempt to retain quality employees through raises or other internal job opportunities.

    I have been working at TAPE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Light corporate structure and easy access to resources because it's a small company. Very military veteran friendly organization. Involved in the dynamic and expanding industry of training simulations.

    Cons

    The resources you have easy access to can be limited because it's a small company. As a service support focused company, new ideas have to be accepted by the customer and they can be stubborn.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering down.

    Pros

    TAPE's motto for employees is Each One: An Entrepreneur•. The environment is that each employee creates the company. Employees are pleasant, happy and seems to enjoy working at TAPE.

    Cons

    There will always be a moment that is not what you expect or desire. However, the management believes we need to take a moment to reframe. In fact, part of the new hire process includes a book that basically helps people change the view to create new perspective.
