    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.

    I worked at TAPE as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro I see is working from 7:00 AM- 3:30 PM.

    Cons

    The company does not acknowledge if you have a degree or not. I have a Masters degree and they offered to pay $12.79. That was crazy. There is no way a person can survive off that, fast food restaurants makes more.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the workers with more respect. Acknowledge the employees with degrees.

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

    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.
