    Pros

    Telect provides a high performing accountable culture where you are not afraid to make a mistake. The people are amazing and you are able to learn significantly.

    Private company requires you to work under resource constraints. You have to wear many hats.

    Keep doing what your doing. The shift in process and strategy was key to the successes of 2016 and beyond.

    Pros

    Great people here, focused on goals to reach month to month expectations.

    Cons

    no raises in 1 1/2 years, slow growth, no opportunities for growth, stuck can't advance. Not recognized enough to the right people.

    Advice to Management

    take care of the "seasoned" employees, raises would help motivation, just de-motivates everyone!!! Focus on diversity. Smart people here just can't advance in careers.

    I worked at Telect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great vision, a great model, and the new office layout has really enhanced communication and group efforts. Employees feel as if they are valued and they are working to be the top at customer service and deliverables. Co-workers are very warm and there seems to be real team work when it comes to getting the orders out the door. Work-Life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    When a new model was created, it was a slow go at first, but once the wheels started spinning progress was made. Downturns or declines in the customer environment can have a huge impact so you have to think differently when you work there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working toward,s the goals you have set and remembering the wheels on the bus keep it moving. Your doing great and I see a bigger and brighter future for all of Telect.

    Pros

    Worked with some good, knowledgeable, hardworking people.

    Cons

    It is almost pointless to try to list the Pros and Cons of working at a facility that no longer exists, due to a decision made by the CEO. Indeed, it may be pointless to say anything of a company that, on its current path, might not exist for much longer. But allow me to rant anyway.

    Little thought seems to be put into any decisions, be it moving the main production facility to a building half the size, not venting heat from the powder coat oven in the new building with summer looming or, five years later, abruptly deciding to close that facility with large contracts on the horizon.

    There were frivolous expenditures on such things as painting quotes on the walls, replacing the time clocks with half as many fancy new ones that never seemed to work as well as the old ones, the shiny new robot that, to my knowledge, is still not in use and, the mother of them all, the"30 Year Ride" in 2012, where the executives went for a month long motorcycle road trip on the company's dime under the guise of drumming up business. While those "in the trenches" MIGHT receive a pittance of a raise every 2-3 years and had to perform miracles with equipment on the verge of failure.

    Advice to Management

    Lose Wayne in favor of someone who has some idea of what they're doing and Telect MIGHT survive.
