    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.

    I have been working at Tapestry Solutions part-time

    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 part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture. This is a good place for college (Cal Poly or Cuesta) students to start their career. Very flexible schedule and uplifting feel in the office.

    Cons

    The testers of the software are in a different building than the developers and some miscommunication can happen as a result of this divide.

    Advice to Management

    The management is great. They are very understanding and know, for students like me, that school is our number one priority and are willing to accommodate for that.

    Pros

    Pro comments are all in the past for this place. Nothing really positive going on here.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor from very top through all director level. CEO is empty suit from parent company Boeing. Out of touch. BD is broken. Main product i(SW)is bad.... doesn't work as advertised

    Advice to Management

    Reexamine strategy. Fix your products / spend the money necessary to do so... or be prepared for parent company to carve ypu up. May be too late

    Pros

    The people I work with are second to none. The ambiance is great and the teamwork is excellent. The ability to work alongside and support USA Troops and Allies is incredibly rewarding for me.

    Cons

    Upper Man, doesnt know what the Feet are doing. The feet control the brute force movement of the body.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice from the portion of the company actually making money. Stop trying to pay less make more, that's why all of our good people quit.
