    I have been working at TTI Texas

    Pros

    Stability and a lot of good people and good line card for a wide customer base. Opportunity to have a good stable career without much formal college education.

    Cons

    Management could definitely do a better job recognizing talent and provide opportunities for their best people. For a 3000 employee company, there are too many silos and not enough people looking at the big picture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pigeon hole talent. Doing a good job overall, but empower talent and creativity to be best in class.

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

    Pros

    TTI, Inc. is a 2.2 billion dollar global company, with locations throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. There are some really great people that work at TTI. Very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch and do not trust their employees, benefits are practically non-existent, growth potential is very limited. Unless you are a sales person there is no bonus structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you wish to compete for the most talented people, you need to pay better, provide better benefits, and a bonus would be the icing on the cake.

    Pros

    TTI is a great place to work for the time being and maybe even for long term. The people are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    The pay is low and micromanaging is a big problem. People aren't recognized enough for the great job that they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and have faith in them! They'll get the job done. Treating your employees like kids will just make them ignore you more. Respect goes both ways.

    I have been working at TTI Texas full-time

    Pros

    The company has many people who have worked there for ten years on up so lots of experienced, tenured folks. The company is open to requests for relocation, position changes, etc. It's a good company to work for if you're focused on a steady paycheck.

    Cons

    It's not a very progressive, innovative company. I found that most co-workers and managers were content to do things "the way it has always been done". Also, the paths for growth and promotion were limited. There were only a few main functional areas (operations, sales or product management) from which to move around and sometimes tenure speaks louder than abilities.

    You have to proactively establish and push your own career path. While some managers were better than others at mentoring and providing performance reviews, there lacked a cohesive, consistent corporate process for employee growth and development. I only received two formal performance reviews in five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management seems to be consumed with short term goals and fire fighting. Prioritize time each day to the long term success and development of your employees and organization. Also, I was often talked to - communication was one way. I'd suggest more two way communication (i.e. 360 performance review). Lastly, challenge yourself and your staff to cultivate an environment of continuous learning and improvement. The status quo is not the only way to do things.

    Work is not hard.
    Company is secure financially.
    Very little mandatory overtime.

    Profit sharing is very modest in light of profits.
    Information systems are out-dated.
    Wage increases are generally infrequent, unpredictable and modest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to let the management team "rock the boat".
    Several members of senior management need to retire.
