    Pros

    You can set your schedule to meet your needs. You get an alarm code and can work in the middle of the night or on weekends if you wanted to.

    Cons

    If you don't have any previous software testing experience, you will not get assigned to some of the cooler projects.

    Pros

    Okay to get your feet wet out of college or self-education. Some people are good to work with. Meaningful work on a system that saves lives every day.

    Cons

    Dead end for career if you want to move on eventually. Most skills aren't transferrable. No coding standards. No best practices.

    Advice to Management

    When morale issues are expressed, listen. Take care of your people, not just your customers.

    Pros

    The environment here is relaxed and friendly. Never had a bad experience approaching Developers or more senior staff. I also enjoy the complete freedom of setting my own schedule.

    Cons

    High turnover among the test group creates a knowledge gap, which makes it harder to bring new testers up to speed. Not much opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Try and retain your employees, (full time and part time)

    I have been working at Tapestry Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Tapestry Solutions has a small company feel, backed by an iconic industry leader - Boeing. People are friendly, very hard-working and proud to be part of Boeing. We have a brand new leadership team in place, including a new president who is committed to promoting a "One Tapestry" culture. The idea is to provide an environment where everyone feels engaged, empowered and aligned to help the business grow. It's working, because the orders keep coming in and we're doing better than ever!

    Cons

    Tapestry is the culmination of several companies that were acquired by Boeing, and has had several leadership changes over the years. This has caused confusion in terms of branding, product name changes, and general lack of understanding of what the company does (outside of your specific product/business area. But things are improving with the launch of the new website last November and new leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that "Rome wasn't built in a day," so it will take time for people to catch on to the new company culture. Many people may resist change, especially long-term employees.
