    Pros

    Good benefits, days off, 401k match. If you like to travel, there is a lot of it.

    Cons

    If you don't like to travel, there is a lot of it. Very "corporate america" environment.

    Advice to Management

    Times are changing and so is the American culture. Dress to impress doesn't always mean a button down suite, especially if the customer is wearing jeans and a polo. It really makes some of them uncomfortable.

    I have been working at TESSCO as an intern

    Pros

    Great environment, continually up to date with competitive software, your work is valued, fair hours and compensation, very modern and clean office

    Cons

    Tends to be the typical corporate office that does not have a ton of energy and is more serious. At times there seemed to be communication issues when working within departments.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clearer management structure to allow for better communication between departments. It is decent sized company and could benefit from harnessing the full communication of its employees.

    Pros

    The company, as a whole, is great to work for! Really enjoy my co-workers and the culture that the company stands for. Everyone is always willing to help when you need assistance.

    Cons

    Handling constant calls on top of webhelp emails, POs being sent to us, and setting up new accounts is a lot to handle. Should have separate teams to handle specifics. Also, the account managers tend to rarely answer their phones.

    Advice to Management

    Make a separate team to handle Ventev's warranty requests and a separate team to handle new accounts and/or webhelp queue. Handling constant calls on top of webhelp emails, POs being sent to us, and setting up new accounts is a lot to handle.
