    I have been working at Tektronix Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best place if you are in in the DFW area and looking for a relaxing job with very few responsibilities. It has been acquired by Netscout, hopefully things will get better.

    Cons

    Very conservative and the average age in the company is at least 40

      I have been working at Tektronix Communications full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Initial salaries are usually not bad, but don't expect you income to grow faster than inflation. Great health insurance. Sometimes good bonuses (sometimes).

      Cons

      Tektronix Communications technically no longer exists; we recently merged with NetScout Systems. But I put this review here because the Plano office, which was originally Tektronix Communications, things haven't changed much for the better. NetScout Systems claims to be employee-centric; that doesn't seem to be taking effect in the Plano office. The biggest problem the company has is hanging on to top-talent. We seem...

      Advice to Management

      If you really want your internal survey results, which this year's management performance review objective, you need to stop being cheap. And if someone suggests adding perks like companies like Google and Amazon have, seriously consider it instead of just saying we're not Google/Amazon. Google and Amazon are immensely successful companies; by saying we can't have perks like they do, we're really just saying we don't...

      I worked at Tektronix Communications (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Nice parking lot. Air conditioned building. Bathrooms were clean. Night time security was visible. That's about it.

      Cons

      Virtually little to no on-board training (for the department I worked in) was provided to me. As to the "training" I did receive, it was not even provided until approximately two weeks PRIOR to the project's final due date. This despite several, several attempts and requests made to management weeks in advance. In my opinion it was far too little, and far too late. Even with 15+ years of Fortune 200 telecommunications...

      Pros

      They use cutting edge technology and the frameworks that are latest in the market. They try to innovate but it slacks down because of the management.

      Cons

      There is no training whatsoever. You are on your own. Many a times, the requirements are not clear.
