    I worked at Tesco Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company generally is enjoyable to work in. Houston locations are outside the beltway so you don't have to fight the inbound traffic in most directions.

    Cons

    The turnover in some groups has made the focus of some of the business lines a moving target.

    Pros

    The company offers an immense amount of on the job training, which is in a lot of cases a baptism by fire. An employee who is easily adaptable to many unexpected and sometimes very complex issues will excel.

    Cons

    Company organization is forever changing. Growth is typically promoted from within and senior management rarely promotes or initiates employee training outside of "Tesco University" This leaves many upper management not formally trained for their positions which lacks the ability to apply newer or more efficient processes. Each and every organizational restructure would however initiate change to process which taxes the administration staff beyond what is achievable which generally leads towards a top heavy organization.

    Advice to Management

    Start with a business plan and develop from there. Investigate and utilize sustainable systems that allow employees to strengthen and build skills for the future without the threat of new system introductions. Promote employee development beyond what is available through internal training resources. Create champions not slaves. One of Tesco's cultural views is open discourse, Senior management needs to pass down company vision better and promote a strong positive direction which would lead to higher employee morale.

    I worked at Tesco Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay and great benefit package. Room to move up within the organization. Traveled to many interesting places.

    Cons

    Short notice to prep for overseas jobs.
    Unfair assessment on incident which lead to being terminated. Clean record for 17 years of service prior. Felt the company could have handled it better. Learned that trust in an employers fairness can be broken. Overall, I enjoyed my time with Tesco.

    Advice to Management

    Be more fair when evaluating reasons for termination. Consider ones past, clean track record.
