    Pros

    Work life balance is good, Operators on the shop floor are great to work with. Great place to get get additional outside training.

    Cons

    Top management is not on the same page, most of them have the attitude "How will this advance me in my career" Although they will send you to get additional outside training they do not support it or use what you learn so it is a waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    Developers a strategy plan and stick to it. Develope your people and let them do their jobs.

    Pros

    Nice building; on-site cafe. Decent pay + benefits.

    Cons

    Major Management issues. Greatly depends on the department. "clicks" and favorites were the NORM. Worked there over a year and never could get a proper employee ID from Manager. Manager would speak to some employees and ignore others. Office equipment and cubicles were very outdated. Difficult to schedule and use avail PTO. T & B is known for excessive turnover and layoffs. Z E R O job security. Miserable and hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management should be more involved in what middle Management is doing. Increase employee morale. Conducting unannounced layoffs on Christmas Eve... bad business.

    Pros

    8-5 working schedule
    not much to think of for pros...

    Cons

    -no career advancement opportunity, you need to be there 10 years to be Sr and 15 year to be lead... existing managers works for 20+ yrs, no matter what you are before join, what you were promised before join
    -1-3% increase annually... period. no matter how good you finished a year
    -no engineering, no technical, just politics... the one who plays politics got promoted.. not wonder as they been there for over 20 years. Their contributions? a joke
    - low salary...
    - overall a resume destroyer...wish i did not waste my time there... cut your lose asap
    - young people are leaving .... so they continues hire new... don't get trapped

    Pros

    The pay is decent for entry level, and for those who have an associate degree level of education. It's a good place to build skills and experience.

    Cons

    High turn over rate. Serious lack of leadership and training. This is the most unprofessional environment I've ever been in. Very low morale here. Little to no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Become leaders and take responsibility. I've seen too many political charades and blame games going on. It's obvious to everyone. Stand up for your subordinates, and provide them with the tools and training they need to make you and the business successful.
