    I have been working at TEC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They do put out a good product. Some engineers are very good at their job.

    Cons

    No training. Project management can be very lacking at times.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more out of your employees and you will get more from them.

    I worked at TEC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Installing GPS units is fun.

    Cons

    They tell you what it pays, then changes it when it is time to pay. A lower amount.

    Advice to Management

    They have insurance and don't use it because of the deductible. Crazy.

    Pros

    Good People. management is open to input from associates. I feel like i am a respected member of the team here...

    Cons

    There just doesn't seem to be enough room to grow and move up to where i want to go in my career

    Advice to Management

    I think for the most part the managers are doing a good job. Sometimes i feel like there should be more in house promotions, rather than hiring from the outside...

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company
    Good pay and benefits
    Young company (most employees are 25-35 years old)
    interesting work
    great opportunities for someone looking to transition from the militayr to the private sector due to a large number of DoD projects

    Cons

    Company is an ESOP corporation yet is still managed like a sole proprietorship by the CEO
    No real job security (company is always having layoffs or "restructuring their workforce")
    Good old boy network is alive and well here.
    Company is currently under investigation by the Federal Government for discriminatory employment practices.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and go play golf because that is about all you do now anyway!

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    growing company
    work life balance can usually be managed
    coworkers are good people
    some interesting projects
    opportunity for travel in some positions

    Cons

    Cronyism
    Nepotism
    Below market pay
    lack of diversity
    Often behind the curve in technology because TEC management thinks it is a waste of money to replace anything that still works...even if there is something that works much better.
    No corporate credit cards at TEC, employees are expected to charge business expenses sometimes totalling tens of thousands of dollars on personal credit cards...then wait for TEC to get around to sending a reimbursement check.
    No company cell phones at TEC, employees are expected to use their personal cell phones for business calls and and foot the bill themselves.
    Historically too high reliance on public sector (mostly Department of Defense) work
    Some really incompetant management decisions (underbidding contracts)
    Employees live in constant fear of getting the axe in one of their MANY corporate downsizings.
    Few people survive long enough to become vested in this company unless they are one of the good ole boys.

    Advice to Management

    You guys built a solid company but it is time to retire and let someone else take it into the 21st century.
