    I have been working at TPC Group

    Pros

    Great culture; strong values; lots of flexibility initiatives; lots of opportunities to make an impact; exposure to many critical projects and easy access to senior management; focus on reliability; long term vision and strategy; supportive culture when in need (Harvey); serious about involvement in community; lots of communication and transparency

    Cons

    Lean organization; if learning new things and having an impact is important to you, this is a great company; if vertical career is important to you, you might be disappointed

    Advice to Management

    Continue investments in infrastructure and people

    I have been working at TPC Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible Work Schedule, Access to senior management, 9/80, Maternity Leave Policy

    Cons

    Too much too fast - slow down to do things effectively and longer lasting change and improvements. Lean Organization - not a place for vertical movement but definitely an opportunity for lateral growth and experience in other areas.

    I worked at TPC Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    9/80 schedule, health benefits, PTO

    Cons

    TPC does not promote from within. Upper management will overlook the qualified employees that they have that are already in the department and either go outside the organization or go outside the department to hire someone unqualified that must be trained. Ultimately, the overlooked people are the ones that have to train.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop overlooking the qualified people that you have. There's been so much turn-over and that should tell you that there are issues within the company and especially certain departments. Consider why you've lost a whole department within months and had to restaff the whole department.

    Pros

    Great potential to earn money.

    Cons

    There’s not much work-life balance, but that’s typical for shift work.

    Advice to Management

    HR plays it close to the vest. An unfortunate side effect of today’s litigious society.

    I have been working at TPC Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    TPC has/had a great group of mid line employees who worked well together to form a cohesive, well organized team

    Cons

    TPC randomly dismisses good employees which results in dissent of departments. The CS department received excellent reviews on a customer review but changes to department management resulted in the entire group leaving the department for other positions

    Advice to Management

    If it works, don't fix it. Let your good employees do their job to ensure customer satisfaction

    I worked at TPC Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Have a flexible work schedule that allows Work/Life Balance.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional management style-very foolish games, unfocused on getting work done and always focused on drama and other personal business

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people with little to no background. The meaning " you get what you pay for" does really stand for something.
