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

    Pros

    I loved my co-workers, Chris Harrison, job duties and the company culture. I worked for years at TEOCO and always felt empowered and accountable.

    Cons

    I don't have many complaints other than the job was getting harder as the opportunities were harder to come by and that was making the stress level increase.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advise. Maybe analyze acquisitions more?

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

    Pros

    1. Good people / Work culture.. ( Extremely slow and easy going )
    2. Sick days are unlimited so not to worry about using PTO for sick days.

    Cons

    1. The work culture for me was extremely ( And i cant stress enough ) slow. Unless you are part of the ( few ) priority projects... you will find it to be really slow-going.
    2. The pay is bad. You live in one of the costliest neighborhoods in US and get paid the salary of comparable of a small town.
    3. Each task takes months to work and there is lack of project management
    4. You are sometimes monitored and judged / micro-managed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees at-least the comparable wage of the area. Simply flexible work conditions and good colleagues is not enough motivation.

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

    Pros

    If you are technically competent and want a last job before retirement this may be the place for you.

    Cons

    Below market pay. Worst management team I have been involved with. No career growth path.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in management training from outside consultants. Do what you say you are going to do. Don't present action plans to workers unless they are firm and definite.

    Pros

    Self-driven environment. TEOCO has a very good company culture. Employees are encouraged to take ownership and are rewarded for it.

    Cons

    TEOCO is not a great pay master. Benefits are average. The company is not at par with the latest technology developments.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to keep up with the trending technology and employ more outside world experienced people to maintain the edge.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, autonomy, great benefits. Many of the managers are decent enough though some are not. It's difficult to get fired (which is only beneficial to those who don't care to work hard, to those of us who do... it's a con!). Free snacks!

    Cons

    CEO is a disgusting person in every way--very arrogant and rude! It's hard to find good talent because the company is CHEAP ("they don't want people motivated by money"). They actually pay H1B Visa workers more than equally or better qualified US citizens (by ~$10k-$25k+) to do the exact same work. Everything is a negotiation but never in favor of the employee, they have to find a way to save money... even if it means buying double what you need just to get a discount. They wait until almost halfway through the year before announcing the bonus structure and add $250k onto the already absurd (nearly 20% growth year on year) revenue requirement--but refuse to hire adequate additional workers. Upper management is dishonest, and they do everything they can to dance around questions when you try to pull the truth out of them! Most stay because we have an excellent team and the people who've been around since the previous company get paid decently well (though substantially less than when TEOCO took over. Also, there is a great deal of flexibility and job security for many of the more senior testers. Directors have no say over anything, every decision is made by senior level management. Directors are like lobbyist, arguing for improvement and they are like counselors trying to help those under them the best they can. It's insane!

    Advice to Management

    Find new jobs because while you may be a "manager", you're really more of a team lead. There is no point in offering advice to upper management because they simply don't care and they will flat out tell you that.
