    A Great & Stable Company

    Lead Web UI/User Experience Designer (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsI have had the pleasure of working at TTI for the past two years in the eBusiness department. My experience has been very positive overall. Management and leadership are capable and supportive, coworkers are skilled and professional, and everyone seems to be relaxed, friendly, and ready to work.

    ConsWith any large, stable company, it can take time to change. While this is not necessarily a con, it is the nature of the size and age of the company - and it is getting noticeably better. In eBusiness, there is a growing ambition now to innovate, create change, and generally improve upon things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have no qualms whatsoever with the way TTI is being run, much less any complaints about how the department I was a part of was run. From my perspective, TTI has found some great advocates and leaders for their departments and teams, and I hope they can keep that up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent place to work and some decent people but extremely slow moving company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStability 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrific experience

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsCo-workers, great inventory, expansive product line

    ConsBranch managers useless, an HR nightmare. Abusive, environment. A lawsuit waiting to happen

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people making the sales, they want you to profitable. Managers are ripping you off.

    Warehouse Operator II

    Warehouse Operator II (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    Proscreate great friendships with people, opportunity to advance to a limit. pay is reasonable, and offer discounts on ranger tickets, boots, various things as a perk.

    Consgossip within the workplace, not a lot of great "management". supervisors don't talk to you unless they are told to or chewed out. can be stressful at times, and shift times aren't that great.

    Advice to Senior Managementbe more involved with your employees, it will get you further in your career. also, maybe make a few more leadership positions for certain areas. consolidation, shipping, picking. (not just supervisors, but area "leaders".

    Above Average People - Below Average Benefits

    Web (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsThe people are extremely friendly and tend to be very qualified for their positions.

    ConsThe only cons would be the slightly old-hat upper/mid management styles, as well as slightly below-average benefits. However, I must say that I am a big fan of our CEO/Founder, and a few others in upper management that really know what they are doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdd rewards systems based on performance for folks in every department, even IT/IS. Raise benefits.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Time is Money, the Only way you'll make $ is working Overtime then only make less than 3/4 what your talents are worth

    Customer Support Specialist (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsLocation, Reputation, Stable company, the cowrokers are friendly

    ConsLow Compensation, Very Weak Management ,inability to recognize and develop employees strengths, skills & abilities.No Leadership, Service years, And Strongly built friendshiips with supervisors & managers equals = PROMOTION for those who otherwise lack the skill set and experience to achieve such positions within any company Huge lack of planning on management's part when it comes to most business decisions, tti seems to place morbefore e emphasis on employee's amount of years worked instead of placing it where it belongs on the employee's talent's, skills , abilities, not on if they were adventurous enough to get out in the elements of an ice storm risking their life & countless others to come into work that day. Enablers of favortism and neputism within the work place, managers lack leadership skills, way too much micromanagement on people that don't need it and not any management of those people & departments who do need it they run wild , working when they want too and visiting and gossiping the remainder of the work day leaving their co workers to work overtime to carry the workload, alot of deparrment heads dump their responsibilities & duties off onto other areas and departments within the company that arent trained or qualified to be performing the work dumped on them. All Warehouse workers and superrvisor/ coordinators share a nasty attitude towrds customer service caring more about the comfort and ease of the warehouse than the satisfaction of the customer,meaning no one will go that extra step or mile to provide exceptional or outstanding service for the customer more times than not time is spent providing reasons for WHY the employees cant do something instead of finding ways to make it happen energy is very negative at both warehouse locations.Lack of confidentiality,even with the HR department and supervisors etc. if you have an issue or problem you might as well face it head on yourself or make it publicly known as this is what will happen after it'sdiscussed with a supervisor or hr personnel.The maturity level at this place of business is practically non-exsistent, jr. high level mentality is widely used thru out this company.Most all of the people there are firendly , caring and nice and ALL Just wasting their time with tti,they will never be paid what they are worth while employed here, the only ones that are paid decent are all of the longtime employees or very agressive bossy employess that dump their work off on others and they shouldnt even be allowed on the payroll as they drag the rest of the team down because they don;t carry their workload and management is too weak to address the issues and problems with this. Management lacks leadership skills and experience so much that their lack of action has lead to a hostile work environment for many departments due to allowing them being taken over and lead by the more aggressive, assertive and overbearing employees in the department, that aren't coordinators, supervisors or management. Clickish behavior and ideas , with little or no emphasis on Team work or Team focus. Perfection is not built by time alone, it's built on energy, abilty and Team efforts that in time lead to patience ,skills, experience and knowledge equalling perfection...

    Advice to Senior ManagementRE EVALUATE Management's emphasis on Customer Service and the focus or goals tti professes to live by. Educate all tti managers, supervisors, & coordinators thru seminars, classes and training to make sure they are the right candidate for the job and not just being chosen for any other reason. otherwise your doing all empoloyees a huge disservice placing these unqualified individuals in postions they are not qualified or skilled to be in. IT's Time to put your foot down and stand up for the rights and privacy of others and stop condoning and participating in the employee grapevine or gossip circles. You have had many very talented professionals come thru the door only to leave with their talents and skills never having been noticed or used by tti, leaving these people to become a great asset to other well known companies which are competitors of tii.
    This is a Red Flag warning that tti doesn;t recognize employees by their job related experience, knowledge or skills and their pay level is reflective of this.

    TTI could be so much better

    Information Systems (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsTTI, 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.

    ConsUpper 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

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