Test & Reliability Engineer (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CAAugust 15, 2014
The work was great and interesting. I gained a lot of skills at TCS.
The co-workers were the best and they were always willing to help and to execute in a team approach.

There was free coffee, juice, soda and water which was nice.

On the job, more resources would have been good.
Pros
good work

Not a Stable Employment Company
Test and Reliability Engineer (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CAJuly 19, 2014
A typical day at work was typically characterized by simultaneous, demanding work item requests and schedule with not time for training.Most of the work items were not made easier by the proper resources of technicians and test equipment

I learned an quite about about their SSD product line and the use of tools to characterize them.

Most of te co-workers were good but there was a sense of technical snobbery.

The hardest part of the job was having enough time and resources to do all the work items and with avoiding dumb mistakes caused by demands of others and schedule.

The management - they managed and control by fear and there was no job stability for the long term. There were penny raises or none.
There was not performance review the last year and I was not notified of this. There was not any bonus plans. Management squander hundreds of thousands of dollars on the wrong equipment and the wrong choices for product development.
Pros
free coffee juice
Cons
incredible pressure, management by fear (job loss by what ever method)

Avoid this company
Is personally identifiable information (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 9, 2012
If you care about delivering a product that the customer will be happy with and continue to use, choose another company.

If you want to work for a company that values its people and understands their skills, choose another company.
Pros
nice people - outside of management levels
Cons
commitment to very low quality, everything tribal knowledge only, keep things status quo, always crisis mode, continuous extreme level of turnover, no training, unrealistic expectations, managers need managerial training, teamwork minimal and discouraged, processes broken.
