    I have been working at Teledyne Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great team, not a lot of turn around in key positions, easy to learn from people that have had decades of experience, very steady job with management that makes it easy to do my job.

    Cons

    Turn around in factory support and a general lack of care from the staff at the factory can make working with and supporting customers absolutely painful - not sure if it's just because of new staff or inside management - but it's very difficult to have to constantly apologize for the speed at which the factory responds.

    Advice to Management

    Define upward mobility paths - there's no clear path for any kind of career advancement; work on morale at the factory - try to get the teams to have the same passion that a lot of the upper management actually has and demonstrates regulary.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Teledyne Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I learned a great deal from engineering veterans in the field. Unique industry with unique products.

    Cons

    There is a loss of vision going forward even 5 years from now. Failure on a part of management to build the next generation workforce for this facility (Teledyne Microwave Solutions, Mountain View, CA). At this rate, this facility cannot sustain itself 5-10 years down the line. Most of the workforce in the facility will retire within that timeframe.

    Advice to Management

    You need to decide whether you want to continue this business. The message you are sending to the workforce is that you do not believe there is a future here.

    Pros

    Teledyne always supports financials as a corporate goal, so remains viable over decades.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, other operational characteristics often do not follow suit, making sustained growth difficult. Hard work and vision are often unrewarded, replaced by short term financial considerations and blatant politics. Process considerations that support the financials, from the ground up, are mostly neglected and left to local managers who do not always monitor/control the processes. This leads to repeated... reorganizations and struggle, most recently several upper level firings and resignations, leaving the organization with new management that does not know the company, product, or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Remove politics as advancement qualification, in actual fact, not just in rhetoric. Provide better incentives and rewards for those that acutally are motivated AND know the business processes and technologies. Take a more comprehensive view of the whole processes, not just part (e.g.: consider more than just material costs in production; labour can easily outstrip material costs). Hire people who actually know how... to and are motivated to do these things.

    I worked at Teledyne Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Never a lack of work Different challenges each day Working for a BU is rewarding and enjoyable. Good BU management. Non- IT corporate management is very good

    Cons

    Enterprise IT positions (those not working for a BU) will all eventually end up in Huntsville, where most enterprise resources live. This will be done through attrition or re-org. Make no mistake. If you are not from Huntsville, your upward mobility in enterprise IT is severely limited. Those enterprise IT groups not based in Huntsville, ie enterprise applications, have very weak management and staff. ... Directors and managers are very short sighted, lack technical capability, and are more concerned with protecting their piece of the kingdom from moving to Huntsville. Using Enterprise Applications as an example, they have very few capable individuals that carry the rest of the group. Enterprise security is similar. Enterprise level IT is Game of thrones-ish ... IT management is very untrustworthy. If you are taking an IT position based in Huntsville, you are in good shape. If you are considering taking an enterprise position elsewhere, see the first bullet above. We used to call Huntsville the "old boys club", since most IT promotions and upper management candidates come through that location.... and they are mostly male.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate the enterprise groups to one location and be done with it. Stop the slow bleed. Get rid of the low performers (including upper IT management) and hire forward thinkers to take the organization into the 21st century.
