    I worked at TRUMPF full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a technology driven company, innovation and new ideas are welcome. Management is supportive of new initiatives developed by junior employees. They provide the resources needed to be successful.

    Cons

    Job security became an issue after 1 year. TRUMPF needed to cut costs and laid off employees in large numbers.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency in general would benefit the company. Make individuals aware of what's going on at the leadership level and foster better communication between groups.

    Pros

    Depending on position, lower ranks get training and certification on TRUMPF"s specialized equipment, 3 weeks vacation, health insurance. Probably managers feel more optimistic.

    Cons

    Design and production keep moving far one from the other, craftsmanship is dead, is you have perspectives of moving up is good, otherwise, you will be replaced by a machine that will be 100 faster with no intelligent design incorporated. Salaries at lower than standards across the industry. It doesn't take a genius to realize that the benefits come from the difference of wages.

    Advice to Management

    Good ideas come from everywhere. Also from people at the bottom of your organization. Don't try be great just using only charts and metrics.

    I worked at TRUMPF full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -15 days PTO -Decent amount of vacation days -Small size - everyone matters

    Cons

    -Management shoots from the hip and constantly changes plans of action. - pay is very low, especially for living in charleston, sc. -You will be told that the sales team is more important than everyone else. -Germany is almost always on vacation and PTO while you are required to work at least 45 hours a week (and expected to work more). -It's a boys club. All of the sales force and most of upper level management are men. 1 man sexually harassed a worker and received a promotion a few months later. Most of the females are required to answer the phones in addition to their regular jobs ( it's a "team effort"). They finally added 1 man to this duty.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan of action instead of winging everything.

    I worked at TRUMPF full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of training, Lots of travel,nice benefit package. Nice shiny facility. Phone, Laptop, all the required trinkets. Connecticut is beautiful in Autumn.

    Cons

    The high cost of their product is necessary to cover warranty claims and the cost of training the constant turnover of personnel. Below industry wages, Too much training (brainwashing-loss of identity), 100% travel with no regard for family needs, poorly developed products meaning the majority of service calls are to very angry threatening customers, lack of support for engineers in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't it be cheaper in the long run to treat people with respect, value their families, and pay them a fair wage? It would also behoove you to produce a product that wasn't an overpriced pile of rubbish.
