    I have been working at Thomas & Betts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company car, Company Card, company cellphone.

    Cons

    Deteriorating management, understaffed, inter office managerial power plays, poor scheduling, little regard to personal life, Training budget is constantly cut, the field is understaffed but management says there is no justification to add more personnel, cross country travel can be scheduled at the drop of a hat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either spend the money or reduce the commitments. Dispite haven been purchased by ABB, Thomas & Betts constantly bickers and finger points. Not to mention constantly undermines the other parts of the organization by constantly shifting expenses and losses around on the books to try and look as if they are doing better than they actually are. There are successful parts of the organization. However the Thomas & Betts core has become so used to the idea that they are successful that the concept of actually maintaining a well run business if foreign to them. Which results in them hacking away at anything golden they touch until it looks like the mangled and miss managed core that is Thomas & Betts.

    I worked at Thomas & Betts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Full company match on first 3% of 401k .

    Cons

    Their is very poor sense of employee engagement in the office, distrust of management, and few local development opportunities. Due to many buyouts and mergers, their is a high turnover rate and most office employees have a tenure of 5 years or less.
    Harassment tolerating atmosphere.

    Pros

    Good hours and benefits, the people I worked with were great. I love my job in the bolt house.

    Cons

    I was harassed by the company buyer on a daily basis from the day I started til the day I left. I went to upper management, called HR in Tennessee and no one would do anything. The new company should really look at the whole picture and get rid of the head honchos and bring their own. I truly hope there are some major changes made for the sake of the hourly employees that are left there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and listen for a change and really see what is going on right in front of you.

    Pros

    None that I can think of. I'll have to get back with you on that.

    Cons

    This place is a total wreck. Nothing at all like advertised. Nobody knows what's going on and its a miracle this place is still in business. I haven't been here that long but it doesn't take a genius to realize they're going backwards. I even heard they "let go" another drafter that worked here because he wrote a "not very positive" review on here. Really doesn't say much for them as a company. They'll probably come for me to now. I don't even care anymore. They'll find another drafter, they seem to burn through them pretty quick anyway.

    Pros

    This company does offer decent opportunity for growth, but that does not mean you will see a large jump in pay.

    Cons

    Management! They have no clue what goes on. I have never been so micro managed in my life. These people sit in there offices but have no idea what really happens.
