    Pros

    Tektronix is a very diverse company. From my experience, senior management was very respective and supportive of the employees. My co-workers, overall, were more than willing to participate in knowledge and resource sharing. Often going out of their way to help others be successful. Tektronix has a great name in the industry and that makes doing the job easier.

    Cons

    Tektronix could sometimes find itself playing catch up to bring needed technology to market. While they were always aware of what was needed, we sometimes were competing for business where we did not have the expected soultion (although, we could always make a solution happen - that is the fun of the job).

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more diveristy in upper management.

    Pros

    There's always super fun stuff going on! The company acutally puts a lot of resources into making sure their employees are happy. There's little parties, potlucks and tournaments going on all the time. Seems like there is always a treat around for us. My work scheduled is flexible.. I can arrive any time between 6 & 9 and leave after I put my 8 hrs in. Lunch can be a half hour or a whole hour. Time off requests are always considered. There's a Starbucks on campus, and a great cafeteria. Like, a GREAT cafeteria. There is also a track, a volley ball court, a soccer field and a discounted gym. Close to everything.

    Cons

    The cons of this company... well, it's been tough to get hired on within my field. Like others have said, the company is not doing as well as it used to and money is tighter.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the expensive agencies and hire more people on.

    The people are great. A very collaborative environment. The culture is inclusive and fair-minded.

    Some employees have a hard time with change, but it's understandable. It's a low-growth market, which can make it tough to get traction and grow.

    Keep refining the strategy. Continue to look for ways to make the employee experience better everyday. Continue to foster the spirit of innovation.
