Was a nice place to work 5 years ago.
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Youngstown OhioJune 17, 2015
Pros: money can be good when sales are up and you get to see the country when traveling for work.

Cons: management has no clue what they are doing and will micro manage you to death. Employees are not all held to the same standard and they can care less about their employees. If you look at the turnover rate at the company it speaks volumes to these problems.

Software Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZFebruary 25, 2015
Upper management needs to learn how to manage, the only great thing about the work was the people. The co-workers make the time go by fast but the management somehow manage to screw everything up by not having any idea how to actually manage a company. They buy a company and then lay everyone off then try to recover by not knowing what to do with the products they purchased from the company they bought. Basically, they grew too big, too fast.

Rewarding experience with room for creativity
Intern (Former Employee) –  Youngstown, OHMay 23, 2014
Turning Technologies works with you as the intern to make sure you are very knowledgeable on the hardware and software products so you are very prepared to help faculty use their clickers correctly.

You have the freedom to start your own projects and speak your own mind about what should be worked on. You should be a self-motivated person to hold this position as you will spend time working on your own to meet deadlines, but at the same time, must provide quality work.
Pros
flexible hours, friendly supervisors, rewarding work
Cons
may have long hours working solo

Company grown from a small 50 employee operation to over 200 since 2006. Financial growth has been significant, but growing pains for employees.
West Regional Sales Manager - Higher Education (Former Employee) –  Youngstown, OHFebruary 12, 2014
Working at Turning Technologies provided wonderful opportunities for a young professional, particularly in sales. In order to be successful, work would need to be primary; however, this was not a problem for a young professional.

The culture prior to 2012 was the primary reason to work at Turning Technologies; however, this culture has completely changed since the most recent investment company has taken over.

Co-workers were motivated and passionate about the product and how it could help solve problems in the classroom. This passion and motivation declined as significant problems were had with failing products and loss of customers. Pay structures and territory alignments were also changed every year since 2009, which negatively affected sales representatives.

Travel was out-of-state well over 50% of the year, which may be excessive for many.
Pros
travel, co-workers
Cons
poor upper management
