    I worked at Telect full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have read the reviews about how horrible it was to work at Telect and we all have had our moments (good and bad) but when you really peel back all the layers of change, shift in business, and leadership, it comes down to this. Telect provided a great quality of life, a very good salary. I myself, had been employed for nearly 9 years and I will say that this is still "the best job I've had". I was able to go home and enjoy my family without a constant worry about the next day. Go on great vacations and always remember the great times on that get away and not dreading to go back to work after. Say what you want about the company but I had a blast!!! Thanks!

    Cons

    We moved buildings 3 times in 9 years. Stressful

    Advice to Management

    Wayne takes care of his people!

    I worked at Telect full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Telect has a great culture and people are friendly. Products are generally well managed.
    Overall it was a fun job.
     I really enjoyed the autonomy that was given to me during projects I worked on.
    Job was very flexible and allowed a lot of crossover between areas of interest, officially I was one type of engineer but I had the opportunity to solder, help with manufacturing and develop software in addition to my regular job.
    If you work for Telect; don't expect to be stuck in one area and stay there. Telect is very good about allowing anyone to do anything they want (within reason)

    Cons

    Telect isn't very good at giving raises. For two years of hard work I got a 2% raise. Speaking to other employees; this seemed to be pretty common. If you want to work for Telect; don't plan on your salary increasing much during your time there.

    Advice to Management

    I strongly recommend that Telect look more closely at their reward program. The trouble is; each year of experience an employee gains increases the value of that employee (and his potential salary). If you don't make an effort to try to pay the market value for that employee you will lose him to another company.

    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.

    I have been working at Telect full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
