Was a good place to work, but Instability offsets the good
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLDecember 2, 2016
While I was there, it was a pretty solid place to work. It was well balanced and permitted you to have a nice personal life. The compensation was average and the benefits fair but not spectacular. I enjoyed the job and the people I worked with. Advancement was achievable and the culture was good. All that though is offset by uncertainty. No matter how good a job is, uncertainty keeps it from being great. It can't be great when market instability keeps a cloud of doubt over the entire workforce. It's hard to relax when you never know if or when you are going to lose it all. Stability counts for a lot in employment and there isn't much here. Lives are affected each and every time reductions are made and these types of fluctuations in the market keep businesses like this from being truely great.
Pros
Good environment and balanced personal life
Cons
Instability and uncertainty

Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  North Falmouth, MAOctober 25, 2016
Almost choked when I read the other reviews...

This organization is run by a clique of incompetent, minority individuals who devote far more time to furthering their collective personal agenda than attempting to run the business efficiently. From the so-called President down, and throughout middle management, there is no talent.

Sincerely, speak with a handful of insiders before accepting a position with Teledyne Benthos. The truth is easy to uncover.

Poorly run organization devoid of morality and professionalism. Attrition and turnover is very high and morale is as low as it gets.
Pros
Reasonably competitive pay scale
Cons
"B Team" Management

Operations Administrator (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJanuary 9, 2017
At Teledyne, you decide how far you go by showing management you are willing to work hard and take on new responsibilities. Your career is more in your hands than at many corporations. I like that.
Pros
Change for advancement
Cons
May not have an office in your favorite city

Fiber Optics Technician (Current Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLMarch 3, 2016
A typical work days is you come to work and get straight to work no meetings required if your technician or on production floor. I wouldn't know about the higher management but I would say they conduct quite a few meetings through out the day. The co-workers are noisy and they are always out to point fingers at what you did wrong. Its almost as if they want to get you fired. Management seems to be too busy to take care of anyone. If you have a question or concern as to why things are not a certain way... they will quickly try to shut you down instead of giving you a straight answer. The most enjoyable part of the job is going home.
Pros
They are open to cross training and education
Cons
Horrible management, benefits are terrible.

Very exciting place to work
Product Designer (Former Employee) –  Pomona, CAOctober 31, 2016
I was able to advance quickly and loved the environment. The journeymen were world class pattern makers and always willing to teach us how to build pattern. The engineers were friendly and easy to work with.

The projects were cutting edge and amazing. I got to work on military projects that were state of the art and highly classified.

The management was supportive and very knowledgeable.
Pros
Working on highly classified projects
Cons
New technology took many jobs away.

Sales Analyst (Current Employee) –  El Segundo, CASeptember 6, 2016
Easy going company that doesn't over work, so work to life balance is pretty good. Not many Salary employees can say they work 40 hours week. All in all it's a pretty good company with fun free events like Disneyland tickets, or baseball games. Compensation is pretty low and below industry average.
