    Pros

    TR is definitely a leader in the industry, though the company doesn't seem to know what to do with its market power. The products are top-notch and the people are talented. The work is engaging and employees really care about their work. The company provides flexible work/life balance polices, for the most part.

    Cons

    Leadership and vision are lacking. Focus is on cuts, cuts, cuts. There is no real strategy for growth. Leadership lacks the guts to take chances, the wisdom build things the right way and the patience to allow projects to grow. In addition, workers are not valued. They are considered interchangeable "chairs." The company has spent the last several years nickel-and-diming employees in every way possible (i.e. wages, timing of raises, bonuses, benefits, work expenses), while the highest executives see raises. Morale is down, turnover is rising and too many good people are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop gouging its employees and start focusing on growing the business, again. Starving something is never a way to grow it. Also, the constant reorganization must stop! Pick a strategy and stick with it! Every six months, another major leadership change is made just for the sake of making a change. The company spends the next year implementing "changes," only to blow it up and start all over again. Not a good strategy to attract investors.
