    Pros

    Great Atmosphere
    Friendly co-workers
    Growing company
    Room for professional growth or lateral career paths
    CEO consistently re-enforces educational growth by telling us to take courses, get certificates and MS degrees.
    Company sponsors onsite and offsite training courses.
    We have Guckenheimer as our onsite cafeteria which is pretty awesome because they sell caged free eggs, hormone & antibiotic free poultry, hormone free dairy products, organic food.. basically, you have the option to eat as healthy as you want (REAL certified)

    Cons

    meetings to promote efficiency are 80% inefficient
    salary is lower than other companies

    Advice to Management

    a group can only be as effective as the leader: Having someone who is not experienced or incompetent, in charge of his/her subordinates, will cause frustration, stress, and burnout. If you notice a high turnout from your subordinates, it may not be them but you. Senior management should question why lower level employees are leaving a particular manager/group to prevent propagating the issue further.

    Great place to work. The company is growing quickly, so we will always have work to do. This makes you feel like you are contributing everyday. The people that work here are really nice and very helpful. Human resources personnel are the best. I would love to go back as a full time employee. Overall a great company.

    Cons

    There were no cons. I don't like being micromanaged. This was not the case. I was allowed to work at my on pace.

    No advice. Teledyne runs a pretty tight ship.
