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

    Pros

    The people at Tacony are caring, hard-working and smart.

    Cons

    The only downside I experienced was their attitude toward flexible work schedules.

    I worked at Tacony full-time

    Pros

    95% small, warm, family-friendly atmosphere full of smart, genuine and caring employees. Many employees have been working there for 10+ years.

    Cons

    Poor PTO and sick days. A handful of middle managers were unqualified to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage continuing education and provide more mentorship

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

    Pros

    There's an atmosphere of teamwork, and the managers are generally easygoing about how/when you complete your work. If you dislike long hours, take heart in knowing that OT is discouraged. Company paid retirement is a big plus.

    Cons

    The vacation is abysmal in the first two years, and pay is below industry average. Expect to do the work of two or three people for that paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with industry trends: more PTO and higher salaries would be a great start.

    I worked at Tacony (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many fine benefits provided. Great co-workers . Stable and reliable place to work. Employee longevity is wanted and encouraged. Once you have a job you can stay in it.

    Cons

    For the most part you are stuck in your first job with few chances for promotions.

    I worked at Tacony (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great family owned company that lets the management team run their prospective business's

    Cons

    The floor care division (Fort Worth) is packed with cronyism-everyone is either related, or from the same church or both.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee, you have to separate family friends from business and run it objectively if your going to be a player in the future. Otherwise the future isn't going to be so bright that you need sunglasses.

    Working with current technologies, able to wear many different hats.

    Keep up to date with the current median pay for programmers to keep solid help coming in.

  11. "Nice People, Bad Middle Management"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The employees are very close, like a family. The HR representative is a Godsend.

    Cons

    Toxic middle management is not addressed in a productive manner. They boast about their work/life balance and positive environment, but do not address problem individuals, even after dozens of formal complaints. There is also very little room for growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees who complain. It is hard for them to speak up; they shouldn't be punished for it.
