Calibration Technician (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – 10 April 2018
Co-workers were amazing, but was "managed" from Baltimore, which led to micro-managing. We were responsible for on-site calibrations of a wide range of tooling. Utilizing toolmakers microscopes, along with NIST calibrated standards, we maintained on-site standards for all local TE Connectivity labs.
Don't work here unless you want to stagnate in your career.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 16 April 2018
This place offers absolutely ZERO opportunities to grow personally or professionally. Well... unless you count "additional mundane tasks to do" as professional growth - in which case this place is THE PLACE TO BE!
People are cool
No advancement or enrichment - just management whipping backs in attempts to "hit the numbers"
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 3 April 2018
Workplace is fine and has lots of support. New management is problematic. Many of the people I have worked with here for 5+ years have been fired, quit or transferred since the change. They increased the amount of CRM reporting and oversight to add several hours to each days work. Its just not fun anymore.
Logistics Coordinator/Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Timonium, MD – 7 March 2018
Excellent benefits and pay, I feel as though the customer service team (which is comprised of mostly women) is not given the recognition that is deserved. It seemed as though when the men requested something, they got it. When the Women requested something 9/10, they were told that it wasn't needed or it wasn't in the budget. Very sexist! Other than that, it's not a bad place to work.
Pretty laid back, as long as you do your job, no one bothers you.
When it's layoff time, they inform you the same day, No warning!
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – 24 January 2018
When I worked at Tektronix more than 10 years ago, it was a company that shrunken from having been a bigger player in the tech space. It felt like I'd warped back in time when I worked there. I'd been at a larger high tech company, but this felt like a dated, has-been, washed up, minor league player. The computers and software was all old and needed to be updated and sometimes this impacted being able to work. The management was hit and miss. I didn't stay long. It was a struggle to work there.
Some managers were terrible, odd corporate culture, very outdated computers and software
If there is more revenue grow will be very good company to work for
Senior Financial Analyst - Central Planning (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 9 January 2018
Most people at Tek are super nice, very helpful and easy to work to work with. However, the company sales not grow for awhile, and high pressure from parent company for cutting expense, which drive lots of negative impact.
Slower paced technology company layoff cycles every 3 years or so
Software Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 9 January 2018
Let me start out by saying Tektronix is not a bad company to work for, but it is not one I would recommend.
On the plus side: comparable salary, educational opportunities, good work/life balance, friendly environment
On the con side: Tektronix is a slower pace technology company that is losing market share on their product lines. Not as innovative as they use to be and prone to layoffs every 2 to 3 years.
Upward mobility is limited as company seems to be shrinking instead of growing which is main reason for not recommending.
If looking for a job to pay the bills, work normal hours and not necessarily be challenged intellectually at work this is a good place to work. Caveat is not saying job is easy. Most product lines are sustaining and streamlining, so innovation is limited and work becomes routine after initial learning curve.

CENTRAL UTILITIES OPERATOR/MECHANIC (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 20 October 2017
I enjoyed working at tektronix, generally speaking they had good managers who started at the bottom and worked their way up. We were paid decent shift differentials and were cross trained as mechanics when we started as operators. We got decent raises, great profit share pay,and cost of living raises.
FIELD SUPPORT TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – CONUS – 6 October 2017
I worked here for over 8 years, and was laid off when a federal contract was given to another firm. I was paid fairly, treated like I was an important member of the team, and generally enjoyed my job. My manager allowed us to work independently, but would call to check in regularly. We were allowed and even encouraged to work overtime to get back on schedule if we needed to. The health benefits were great, as was the paid vacation policy. All in all, a great place to work.
Process Engineer (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – 4 September 2017
Tektronix is a great place to work. Opportunities to advance and move to other jobs abound, and there is a lot of extremely interesting projects and technical challenges to work on. Most of all, the people at Tektronix are great to work with.
