    I worked at TCOM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Self directed. Small enough company that you make the decisions without justifying it to everyone.
    Hands on at every stage of the product.

    Cons

    On new contrqacts so company is down sizing

    Advice to Management

    Focus on new contracts.. Ron Benlin is the CEO (last 4 years)

    I have been working at TCOM full-time

    Pros

    Low-stress work environment; long-time employees who know their jobs very well; job autonomy; cooperative environment.

    Cons

    Very rare pay raises; no tele-commuting; declining business; many lay-offs; no advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Take action to keep the low and mid-level, good employees that you still have.

    Pros

    Excellent company with an international flavor but with a family ambience.

    Cons

    NONE for TCOM. It's the defense industry that is unpredictable - political winds?

    Advice to Management

    Given the instability of the defense industry develop an "umbrella" method to keep good employees during "down times."

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

    Pros

    There are some genuinely good people that work at TCOM and care about their employees. Excellent benefits and stability.

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement and limited lateral moves. Also there are quite a few cliques that have formed over the years but I think that is probably in most organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Find other markets to get into and keep growing the business.

    I have been working at TCOM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The men and women of the company at all levels are very devoted and conscientious. Those individuals assigned to the Field Operations Group get to travel the world in support of the various LTA systems the company produces and supports. The flight crews within the Field Operations group are the best in their fields and have been nothing but a pleasure to work with and travel with.

    Cons

    The only con I can honestly identify would be a lack of communication from the "Head Shed" to those assigned to the field. Moreover, those assigned to certain projects are pigeon holed on that one program and fail to be considered for other projects which may arise causing undue resentment and negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Expand your playing field to include others within the department when making assignments. In a few years, the "go-to" guys will be retiring and the bench is limited.


  9. "Program Manager"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at TCOM full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits; long-term managers provide stability; varied, challenging work; 9/80 schedule; supportive environment.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility; no telecommuting; raises are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Telecommuting would help QOL for many. Adopt annual performance and salary reviews versus every 15-18 months.


  10. "Interesting Work"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The company pays a fair wage and has good benefits. Pay period is a 9/80 with every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Reviews and raises are few and far between. Management is resistant to change when it pertains to improvement of processes.
