    I worked at Tecplot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great technical product in an interesting niche. Original founders in place.. though nearing retirement.

    Cons

    Bit small and not a ton of growth. But overall hard to find many negatives. Is on the eastside too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Keep innovating and focus on the customer. Keep the culture focused on teamwork and a nice life work balance.

    Tecplot is a great company that cares about its employees and customers. Always striving to do the best and keeping our focus on doing what is right.

    Pros

    Everyone at Tecplot is smart, driven and helpful. There is a sense of community and common purpose as people collaborate on a task, chat in the hallway or lunch room or group together to go on an outing.
    The work-life balance allows everyone to work hard while they are at work and be able to recharge when they are not. There is a lot of flexibility.
    The work is challenging - you have to consider stability, performance and scalability across multiple platforms - but it is rewarding to see what customers in aerospace and other industries and academia are doing with the products.

    Cons

    The company is small and needs a few more developers who are motivated to make great products. There are so many cool things to do but not enough people to do them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen and respond to employees. Support new hires so they integrate well with the team.

    I have been working at Tecplot full-time

    Pros

    Great perks. Free lunch, espresso, snacks, sodas. Smart, smart people. Fun culture. All about science and engineering. Mostly individual offices, adjustable desks.

    Cons

    Small company, people tend to do a lot of different things. So your job isn't as focused.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within. I like that we are hiring fresh out of college.

    Small company, you can wear as many hats as you want!

    Cons

    Management is still figuring out who they want Tecplot to be. A lot of change happening in the past 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make promises you can't stand behind.

    I worked at Tecplot full-time

    Pros

    Owners are great to work for. Very intelligent group of Developers. Low attrition rate should speak volumes about it being a quality company to work for. Have demonstrated ability to make tough decisions (most of the time) with changes in staff.

    Cons

    Management attempts to be progressive, but can occasionally get in their own way, and completely forget they are not a big company. Different standards held for different employees based on department.
