Engineer (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 24 May 2017
Its difficult to explain the cultural norm, as managers have been been at the company less than the minions who do the work. They continue to hire from outside the company, trying to poatch the competition, which usually is less than ideal. Then GMs and VPs are in and out before you know whats going on. In my current roll I've had 7 managers in the last 4 years.
Summer hours (half day Friday's), free gym, great people to work with
management mucking in the processes, campus is falling apart
Get to work early and get coffee and review assignments for Day/Week Just in time supplies, Programming, Hardware and software engineering Very supportive and family oriented Family oriented and rewarded for a job well done.

Manager (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 5 May 2017
This is a decent company doing it's best to pivot from an aging/retiring work force into a lean and fun/vibrant workplace. Still struggling to keep talent as budget constraints and less with more mindset still plague the management.
One of the BEST Companies that cares about employees
Worldwide Service Logistics and Parts Manager (Former Employee) – Wilsonville, OR – 22 March 2017
One of the best companies I have worked for in my career. Every level of management cares about the employees. In return, the employees stay with the company and give the company their very best. Great training, advancement, benefits, rewards... the best.
Senior Design Project (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – 21 January 2017
Tektronix seems like a strange and inviting place to work. A lot to do, but always a calm environment. If you're a good grindstone worker than you'll love it. However if you're more a loose cannon when it comes to goals and work projects you may want something a little more open.
Intern/CSR/retail (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 21 April 2016
A typical work day would be logging into the computer and checking emails and voicemails. Customers that contacted me needed quotes for calibration on any unit or product they had. Beaverton is the headquarter for tektronix. with that being said any calls made from around the US for tektronix where placed to my location. I would have to find the unit they had and see what location around the US that could calibrate that unit and give the customer a quote for shipping and the price of the calibration. This job is more of an office job. You dont really talk to your co-workers but everyone is always willing to help if someone is stuck. everyone i worked with were nice people.
