    Pros

    Cool projects, great coworkers, OT after 45 hours

    Stability doesn't seem to be their thing. They're not afraid to move people around, let people go or overhaul processes without research

    I worked at Tait Towers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some amazing, talented, creative individuals who all really love what they do. Amazing to see what could be done when everyone was working together towards a goal.

    Cons

    Multiple projects from different PMs can be a bit stressful as everyone's project is the most important. Sometimes you simply can't win.

    I worked at Tait Towers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Outstandingly creative minds. They try, and pull off a lot of crazy things. It is a Rockstar Company. Great place to work, and work you will. Long hours with great pay.

    Cons

    Unless..... you work for a non-rock and roll MBA, You know the one, I went to Yale, I park my big truck in the handicapped spot in front of the building because I am so insecure and cannot manage my bald spot or Human interactions. Then my friend; Run, Run fast, Run Far, Run like Forrest trying to catch Jenny. Because this man is a dingleberry. Just stop before you get to Portland, Oregon, Because that is where he had to move, to get another job. You only want to work for the Long-term Rock Gods. If they are new; and have a bunch of letters after their name, they will be gone in 18 months.

    I worked at Tait Towers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekends off, fully benefited, small company.

    Cons

    Too little pay for the work they want if you. They have no real hr to deal with. They make comments like only the “strong survive” when really it’s only the dumb that survive because for that pay it’s a stupidity to stay. Even McDonald employees get paid more.

    Pros

    Highly motivated staff Amazing projects Compensates fairly for long hours A desire to stay innovative Some incredibly intelligent people working here

    Cons

    Stuck in their old ways at points. You can tell there’s like 4-5 people who make the call. They do the thing where they encourage you to speak up and try to improve things but the minute it clashes with what’s the norm you’re essentially told to drop it and move on. Some managers shouldn’t be in charge of people. But that’s typical for most big companies. Very weak vacation package. 14 days off total and only 6 holidays. You can do unpaid leave but it’s subject to approval by management and some managers “don’t believe in that.” It increases 5 days every 5 years, but when you spend 60 hours a week at times, it burns you out quickly.

    Pros

    Exciting projects with a young and diverse (by central PA standards) workforce. Lately, company leadership has taken an interest in employees which has shown huge results in both morale and quality of output.

    Cons

    Most employees in this industry would prefer to live near a major metropolitan area, but company headquarters is in Amish country Pennsylvania. Satellite offices in more desirable locations exist, but rarely hire or allow transfers. Until early 2017, every time a leadership position was open, someone external without experience in the company was brought in, and it was usually a disaster. Employees felt like they didn't have opportunity for growth and many of these external leaders were awful. Not true in the last year+, hopefully doesn't happen again.

    I have been working at Tait Towers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The projects are some of the coolest in the world. Building huge custom machines demands creative solutions and every project is different. Very laid back office style and cool job perks. The most passionate, smart, knowledgeable people I've met. I learn something new every day and am constantly challenged.

    Cons

    High pressure and high stress situations are unavoidable. Some clients are difficult to please.
