    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Business is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.

    Pros

    Good 401K match with great benefits. Time off usually isn't an issue.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with what really occurs at the local level. Company does not place high value on employees who have worked their way up in the ranks. Company places too high of a value on pedigrees rather than actual job experience and ability to do the job competently.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the hard working employees you already have and stop looking for a new widgets elsewhere. Develop the talent you have and give back to the employees.
