    I have been working at Tect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Awesome talented employees working with state of the art machinery. Company has a huge investment in capital equipment, working with the latest and greatest technology.

    Cons

    Can't think of many, outside of they are a big company that has a small company mentality when it comes to running the operation lean. There focus on continuous improvement tends to initiate several projects and project teams which equals more work. Not an issue if we hire the right people.

    I have been working at Tect full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    TECT provides opportunities for their employees to grow The culture is good with a lot of tenured employees and a lot of knowledge. Good company with a strong future projected growth.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any. It is a very fast paced environment which sure makes the time pass quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more internal growth opportunities than we already do and be transparent about it so people know they are high potential employees.

    Lots of older experienced machinists, with tons knowledge. Huge facilities.

    Lots of older machinists ready to retire. No employee retention plan. Do not expect bonuses or company parties.

    Advice to Management

    Hire younger motivated machinists, appreciate the guys who do work 60 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    Pay is good but you need to work OT like every weekend.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless. General manager only knows how to belittle people. Not a very pleasant environment. Management lies to employees. Said there was a Christmas shutdown, then said NO. Take the time later. When asked about the time, was told no longer available.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the turnover rate. Cannot hold good employees. Maybe they should try to care about the employees even though they do not. Upper management must quit before you ruin the whole place.
    You're obviously incompetent and everyone knows. It's basically a joke on the shop floor, they have their meetings and as soon as they walk out, everyone is shaking their head and almost laughing at management. They wonder why things are not improving.

    Pros

    NONE. nothing at all

    Cons

    everything!!! , poor management, complete disorganization, they treat people like crap, they have no idea what they are doing, quote jobs completely under cost and then try to make employees feel guilty for not meeting the profit goals and cut their benefits and time off because of it. And forget about being a supplier (they will never pay you) the location manager is a bully, completely inappropriate and discriminatory behavior, he yells the F.. word every 5 sentences and HR doesn't care at all, the most inappropriate and hostile environment you'll ever work at.

    Advice to Management

    what's the point? they will never listen

    I worked at Tect full-time

    Pros

    The company experience differs by site, some are good, this one is bad.
    Pay is attracitve, at least on the surface. Some good people at the site working hard to fix issues dispite overwhelming interference from corporate.

    Cons

    This site has serious problems. Massive overtime requirements make salary pay not so attractive, and burns people out. If you value your professional or personal ethics, don't work here.
    Corporate management intimidates local managers to get them to do what they want - this has the negative side effect of managers not taking actions for fear of being criticized.

    Advice to Management

    Own up to your failures, stop trying to hide them.

    I have been working at Tect (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I started as an intern and in the past three years I have learned and grown significantly in my position. Management is open to new ideas and changes that will positively impact the business. Everyone is very friendly and easy to work with. TECT is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Occasionally you are required to work weekends and past regular scheduled work hours to address emergencies. Though that isn't uncommon for any place of work.

    Advice to Management

    There is a tendency to micro-manage from some of the managerial staff members. There is also a disconnect in the 'Team' concept on select issues.
