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

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Good benefits
    Good salary (competitive, at least for managers)

    Cons

    Management just started paying dividends...and then laid off employees. Communication is poor and they are out of touch with the people who do the real work of the company. They are only concerned about shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Layoffs every other year do not project a stable company to shareholders or anyone else. There is a lot of waste that could be cut to reduce expenses, but you need to ask the people that know - non-managerial employees. Go beyond the VPs to get more insight into your company.

    The salary was descent but not worth the harassment that was endured.

    Cons

    Poor management and hard work is not acknowledged.

    Advice to Management

    To hire with managerial experience.

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Some of the worst management I worked with; always having to fire someone to make an example where they deserved it or not. You feared if you would have a job or not each day you would go to work.

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

    Pros

    Good R&D, Lot's of great folks working for the company.

    Cons

    High level Management has lost touch with both reality and the boots on the ground. Lofty goals with little to no support to make goals realistic.

    Advice to Management

    Simply putting lofty goals on paper does not make them achievable, support and action does. I would Suggest high level management not only listen to the troops, but get out of your office and hit the field to see what the districts are really faced with. Drop the holier then thou mentality. Tesco has a good product, but so does your competition.

    ""Red Flag""

    Pros

    Great Pay for similiar jobs at other companies
    Benefits are good
    Lots of options to move around the company because of back filling all the people that leave, people move around all the time and never do the same job very long...this is also a con because no one really masters what they are doing.
    Good Social Responsibility, lots of options to volunteer
    Focus on healthy living, gym available, fitness classes, etc.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, it is hard to take any of the vacation they give you.

    TURNOVER: should have been a huge red flag to me. No one stays here more than 2-3 years, if that. Some new people are around from growth, but the large majority are from filling all the people that quit. So many people leave every week, most folks are numb to the news that someone left.

    Horrible communication. It is almost impossible to get help or information from anyone. Everyone is too busy. On a personal note, the social communication is next to nothing. No one knows anything about each other's personal lives/situation...they don't care, no one talks to each other at the office, not many people go to lunch together. It is a weird office dynamic in that regard.

    Advice to Management

    stop being so immune to bad managers that do not have any leadership capabilities. Need to focus on retaining employees, rather than a constant revolving door!

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive within oil and gas industry and benefits are good.

    It is very easy to get promoted within 2-3 years, sometimes even less.

    Company is very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Lots of processes to get anything done thus making one's work harder than it actually is.

    Turnover rate is relatively high within company, thus promotions are due to back-filling. This leads to people not being experienced with their job.

    Lack of communications between different departments.

    Lack of training within organization.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanaging and processes. Need to retain and develop current employees rather than constantly hiring new ones.
