    Pros

    Facility is nice, safe, comfortable.
    Technology is current and close to leading edge.
    OS software is current, but applications software is behind and "in house" is problematic.
    Pay is decent, but a little below market.
    Work life balance is generally good, but can be a challenge at times.

    Cons

    No formal performance review policy.
    Bonus is tenure based and so low, it's an insult.
    No regular raise schedule (see performance review)
    Upper management lacks understanding of current technology.
    ITIL methodology is shunned in favor of a reactive, "everything's on fire" mentality.
    Cuts costs everywhere possible, starting with employee benefits.
    Benefits? Not even close to being competitive.
    High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your pool of knowledgeable, talented employees. They want you to succeed, but you are holding them back and running them off.

    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.

    Pros

    The people throughout the company are nice, the offer medical insurance and denatl and vision, 401k plan

    Cons

    It's too clickish, the raises that are given are very minute, they don't base a performance raise on your performance it's based on length of service and who you know not what you know, the maturity level of the senior management and staff is very low on a high school or junior high level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to the people and know exactly what their job details are before you decide to offer them a tiny rasise base it on on knowledge, skills and expertise, and just because your job isn't a physical one DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOUR NOT BUSY WORKING TO HELP BENEFIT THE COMPANY MORE than you would know! You try dealing with salespeople ALL DAY LONG

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, and good health benefits.

    Cons

    Pay level is below industry average. Management shows no respect to it's employees. Employees are treated like "circus animals" not human beings. High turnover rate in Business Development Group, due to management. The company's focus is on finding ways to cut costs, not rewarding employees that produce at a high level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Catch up with the competition.

    Split commision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a connector engineer in each territory to travel with Field Sales
    Pay raises to keep up with cost of living

    Pros

    TTI is the most stable of electronic component distributors. If you are looking for a good home, where you can have long term job security, this is a good place. And in today's climate, that's a big plus for most.

    Cons

    Compensation plan for performers is lacking. Average performers paid the same as performers. I was able to almost double my salary in a career move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the people truly driving revenue, reward them.

    The stability in TTI is amazing. They do their best to keep their emloyees.

    Cons

    A lot of management is part of the "Good Old Boys" club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Think about cost of living increases.
