I worked at Thomas & Betts full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I can not think of many Pros. The insurance is ok. The products are well known in the market place.

Cons

This company doesn't know what direction it's going in. They were recently purchased by ABB so maybe their is hope for T&B. Extremely high pressure job. Never had enough employees in our department to cover the work load. No help or direction from management. Some of the managers have nothing to do so they will watch the people that are actually doing the work and try to nit pick and tattle to there managers if they take to long at lunch or on a break. The managers need to pitch in and help with the work loads. And stop staring out the window to see what others are doing.

    Pros

    Not many other than it's a job to get experience for your next job.

    Cons

    Make you set goals, but even if you reach them, they only provide raises between 2-3.5%. Managers are not very proactive. They never offer any support during the year, but at review time, they let you know everything you did wrong to give you the lowest raise. They beat you down so much, you lose your incentive to go that extra mile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Waste of breath to give them advise.
