Think long and hard before you work here - rebranding to Cloud-swell.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chattanooga, TN (US)

ProsChattanooga is a great town. The pay was OK since they are forced to bring in out of towners who don't know better yet.

ConsStrangest place I have ever worked. A culture built up of keeping your mouth shut and your head down, since things change so quickly you stay with a constant level of stress wondering what the hell is going on and what will I get yelled at for today that I had NO inkling about. LITERALLY had direction change between the time you received it and the time you got back upstairs to your desk. A VERY small handful of competent folks pick up the slack for a large group of very mediocre talent. Meetings are run very haphazardly, rarely are agenda's or meeting notes distributed, and many times so many ppl will be invited nothing will get done and no action items are assigned resulting in hours of much wasted time.

Executive level management lacks vision and strategy with enough thought for lower level people to attempt to execute. When presented with scenarios that will be encountered in their ultra high level "strategy" you will get yelled at and dismissed summarily for trying to quantify and qualify said "strategy", not sure why there is a culture like this, other than Sr. Mgt will not push back against executive mgt in their monthly "Ops Review" meetings, and the two people in the Executive Mgt really do not have a technology background, but think they do.

The place has very few real external customers, it only stays afloat because its primarily funded by the pay day loan empire, which a great deal of the structure and organization is designed around making it seem like all the "collaborative" companies are independent, but in fact are all one. In a normal industry these "collaboratives" would be depts within the same company, but in trying to mitigate regulatory and tax liability it's setup like nothing you ever seen elsewhere - makes for very difficult circumstances - the "collaborative" will want solutions around which T9/Cloudswell has NO expertise whatsoever, yet be expected to provide them and support them. This obviously doesn't work very well.

They are upfront about the uber-Christian environment. Can't say you weren't told, but it's still embarrassing when you have visitors and they see the creationism non-sense. I'm not sure justifying your preying on low income American's with pay day loans by giving way a small percentage to foreign christian charities will pay your karma debt, but it's a private company and the owner can spend his money any way he wants.

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing I or anyone says will change this.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Thank God It's over!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chattanooga, TN (US)

    I have been working at Terenine full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Fantastic coworkers. Reasonable salary. Beautiful city and area to live. No shortage of interesting… Cons: Salary is not competitive within a 2-hr radius (Ok for Chattanooga though). Raises are puny. No bonuses. Can't retain top talent, turnover is impossibly high.… Advice to Senior Management: Recognize and reward the value of your employees. Treat them like you want… More
