    I worked at Turning Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Folks in corporate office are great and willing to help out in any way. Strong group all working towards the same goal. RMs are strong and have a lot of experience. Strong product.

    Cons

    Recent restructuring will make for a strong fix, but will take time. Not an overnight fix.

    I have been working at Turning Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been here for 4 years and have been in several positions. I didn't get promoted because I was in the 'in crowd' as some of the reviews suggest is the requirement. Considering I don't smoke or go to bars with coworkers...I worked hard and showed what I could do. They changed CEOs within the last year, I worked under the old CEO for ~2 years and despite being nice, I don't think he even knew my name. Ethan cares about the employees and their well being, which I think has helped the entire company morale. They also let go of a lot of the upper management that was holding the company back.

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication is lacking, but over the last year they have made so many changes to try to help fix that. Admittedly I did feel like there was an 'in crowd' a couple of years ago, but I think that mentality has changed significantly. The laying off of the QA department has definitely resonated in the software, but over all the company is working hard to fix the problems quickly and are doing a better job of doing that than ever before.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in a positive direction. Happy employees are the best employees. Everyone is going to have something to complain about.

    Pros

    If you can make it into the popular crowd your drinks at the bars are on the company credit card.

    If you work in sales and management likes you, you can get your bonus even if you don't make your sales goal.

    Company pays for parking.... that's about it.

    Cons

    Company will be sold off soon so get out why you can.

    Poor leadership in executives, upper management and HR.

    HR department is completely unprofessional. Nothing is confidential.

    Company sets unrealistic goals for sales staff which means they never reach the revenue goal, but lets sales spend money on non-necessities.

    Poor pay rates unless you are an executive/management or have some kind of in with them. It is one big popularity contest. It doesn't matter how hard you work, how long you have been with the company, what your education is... promotions are not based on merit, but who you go out drinking with.

    Management will give you more and more work, well beyond any one single persons capacity, expect you to do it with no questions asked and without a raise or a promotion.

    It is a tech company with no QA department???

    IT department is under staffed and lacking experience. They use IT interns for everything and it takes at least 3 tries to get any computer issue fixed.

    Management caters to sales and R&D. The administration staff gets all the work dumped on them and they get paid the least.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect.

    Hire/Promote staff based on merit and experience.

    Pay a decent wage.

    Create a proper on-boarding process for new hires.

    Stop paying for school for employees who just up and leave when they graduate. Invest in training/education for employees who actually stick around and would add value to your company (never did see a return on investment for all those R&D conferences every year).

    Stop letting your staff go to bars in downtown Youngstown or on business trips and get drunk on your dime.

    TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH RESPECT

    The Christmas party is a no holds barred, all out eat fest and drink fest.
