    Pros

    Energetic and Intelligent Management team. The management created a team environment that allowed for input by all members.

    Cons

    Hours were sometimes long and difficult, especially during the economic downturn. It was difficult to keep staff motivated and on task at all times. All in all, the result was a stronger company.

    Advice to Management

    It is always best to take good care of your people and they will do the same for you. There is a place for kindness in the workplace.

    Move away from the "Sweat-Shop" management philosophy of your foreign managers. This is the USA, not India. Treat individuals as such, not just a number.

    I have been working at Tekelec full-time

    Pros

    They have a fairly decent cafeteria.

    Cons

    They often fiddle while Rome burns.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to drive projects with attainable goals. Setting unrealistic timelines can lead to poor execution as corners are cut. Learn not to demand the Cadillac solution on a Chevette budget. Remember to have a product pipeline so you don't end up with a revenue gap when your flagship product reaches market saturation.
