Ideas Editor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 11, 2017
TED was a wonderful place to work — full of people who enjoy what they do and seem pushed to work hard for good results because that's what they actually want to happen rather than because of a personal agenda. More companies could learn from them.
Departmental Technician (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 16, 2016
Public sector with usual politics in place. Some departments leave much to be desired whereas others make up the difference. Co-workers are personable and competent. Working hours are adequate however more flexibility would be appreciated. Enjoyable aspect of job is the ability to work independently and ability to structure one's work day.
Client Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Delray Beach, FL – September 12, 2016
My co-workers are great and they are always there when I need help or have a question about something we have new. A typical day at The TED Center is I would go in my office answer any voicemail messages, call clients who have an appointment the net day to confirm, do my follow- up calls. File the client files, schedule any new clients an appointment.
Was yelled at every morning and was put down at morning meetings in front of other employee, pay was not that great, when I had questions I was told I was a bother and that I should worry about it my self. No communication or at least it was one way me to them. Towards the end I was miserable. Then only good thing was that I did learn my trade better.
