I worked at Tejon Ranch full-time (Less than a year)
- Good pay
- Good benefits
- Beautiful place
- Lots of challenges
- You are just a number
- No stability
- Bad business practices
Unfortunately, Tejon has a little bit of a history of laying people off due to losing money via bad business practices (not a failing economy or loss of customers). They, unfortunately, end up creating money-sinks instead of things that profit them. This isn't always laying off people 'low on the totem pole', and when the time comes anyone is fair game to get cut. There is no 'probationary' period and they use 'at-will employment' to cover most issues.
Advice to Management
When you look at needing to make cuts because you can't manage things wisely, maybe look at the CEO (who is not Bob Stien, it's Gregory S. Bielli) who makes $3.3 mil a year along with some of the board members, etc. Not the people who help your company function day-to-day, especially when you have just under 200 employees to start with.
I worked at Tejon Ranch as a contractor
They offer you a contract position that is temp to hire and upon going permanent, they offer a number of perks such as more days off at holidays, an on-site gym and a gas allowance if you live in the city and drive up the mountain every day to go to work.
The culture is frigid, employees take a long time to warm up to you and management only sees employees as a number, not a human being. They only care about numbers and seek to eliminate any positions possible to save money. They do not care about their employees at all, only the bottom line.
