Unproductive and disheartening place for employement
Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Irving, TexasMay 13, 2014
Pros: indoor office, with air conditioning. beats starvation from lack of employment. good people to work with
Cons: leadership is non existent, directors hire more managers to take the blame and separate themselves from the issues, no accountability, no ethics, clear favorites chosen among the "clicks"
TDS was easily one of the worst places to work in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
There was, and probably is still, an unwavering commitment by leadership and management to exercise unethical behavior.
There was no vision, and the shell game of floating losses over the books had taken it's toll on the company.
From what I saw this year before I left, TDS – more... averaged more people leaving and being laid off, than weeks that have passed in the year.
There was a complete and obvious favorites system among employees, and some members were considered "untouchable" and could not be fired no matter how many mistakes were made. There were too many groups and buddies in the company.
Entire staff of SE's seem to have been the director of engineering friends from GE, only those individuals were given raises or opportunities to advance.
There was no follow through on commitments or honesty from Leadership, everything was the fault of the resources, and the managers were the first ones to point blame.

There was a mismatched ratio of managers to resources and it seemed to have created more resource strain.

There was an IT security breach that allowed social security numbers, and personal information to be posted for over a week on the commons folder for access by anyone in the organization. When Management was approached about the issue, the people who reported it were fired, and the employees were told to "forget what they saw", or basically shut up and move on....
The reporters of the incident had nothing to do with why it happened.

Avoid TDS at all costs. – less

Productive workplace, good management
Paid Intern (Former Employee), Washington, DCMay 6, 2014
Typical day at work was scanning and inputing files. Management was helpful. Co-workers were friendly, but had lots of their own work to do. Hardest part of the job was the repetition. Most enjoyable part was learning how to input files.

Very fun place to work
Sequence operator (Former Employee), Detroit, MIMay 31, 2012
Pros: the company had an open door policy.
Cons: working with people who didn't want to work!
I really enjoyed working for TDS. It was a very physical job that kept you constantly moving around placing parts in order in the correct slot. So I got plenty of exercise while working there. The hardest part of the job was working with people who wasnt motivated or who didnt want to meet deadlines when instructed. The most enjoyabe part of the job – more... was learning alot of new things and being able to advance quickly. – less

Deposit Administrator (Former Employee), Hemel HempsteadMarch 28, 2013
Pros: benefits, good salary
Cons: re-orgainisation
A lot of fun people to work with. Learnt alot about the rental market.
Management style to push people to do their best to enhance the overall company reputation.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with difficult people over the telephone - resolving issues that I had no control over.

Enjoyable part of the job was working with fun co-workers.

Productive work place
thermal insulation installer/lagger (Former Employee), LondonJanuary 28, 2013
A typical day at work starts at 8 AM and lasts until 4 PM or later. It could require Metal finishing, PIB, venture clad, pipework and ductwork insulation to be done depending on the type of the job.
I am good with working in a team or by myself. The hardest part of the job would be represented by working in small areas with limited access. The most – more... enjoyable part of the job is when a difficult task is carried out successfully. – less
