    Pros

    Higher than average salary. Easy to become perceived as high performer relative to the others in any given department.

    Low Low Low accountability.
    H.R. dominated!

    Mismanaged, poorly organized, extremely high turnover. Canadian company (clannish) disguised as U.S. based. Did'nt see many smiling faces from day to day.
    Soul sucking miserable existence.

    Advice to Management

    Great job locking yourselves in for when someone comes along to scoop up the shell of a company you've left behind.

    I worked at Tesco Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Base location management were great to work with, corporate, not so much. Took them to much time to make minor changes. Not close to industry standard pay.

    Cons

    Never knew till the last minute what state you were going to wake up in. Not much home time. Had to spend your own money and then wait on expense sheet to be processed, and then get your money.

    I have been working at Tesco Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good, knowledgeable people to work with. Decent benefits for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication across different departments. Even though they claim otherwise, management is unwilling to change and adapt to new ideas. Some processes can be simplified to help things get done quicker and more efficiently. Too many unrealistic promises made to customers by management and salesforce.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more engaged with their employees and better understand their needs. Communication needs to be better. Need stronger, transparent leadership that isn't afraid to admit their mistakes (hello ESI-1000, Catwalks).
