      Pros

      For most functions of the business, your job is very stable

      Cons

      Working at TS for the past year has been extremely disappointing. I really regret accepting the offer. They’ve handled the COVID situation about as bad as a company could. Whether is be through a lack of communication and clarity or refusal to adapt and allow employees to work remote, I’ve learned that TS is not an employee focused employer. The COVID situation put management’s incompetence under a microscope. It’s very clear that change needs to be made now. Additionally, salaries are about 5-10% lower than market standard. PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE (nearby Northrop, Lockheed, etc).

      Good company, cool products, 8.5/10

      Pros

      They are all about work and the work is very cool. You'll likely learn a lot, as a Co-op, they just throw everything at you that they would a normal employee so you get real work experience. Also, the company seems to make smart business decisions.

      Cons

      Some upper level management I wasn't too impressed with, but other managers and co-workers were impressive and great to work with. Also, if you come as a Co-op when work is at a low (Late fall/Holiday season) you might end up with little work.
