    I have been working at Tronex Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lunch is 1 hour. They start at 9am and the people in charge are always late. You can wear pajamas on Fridays. Bathroom breaks are encouraged. If you are soulless, you will be rewarded. You will succeed if you forfeit all self respect and dignity. There are an excessive amount of pointless, counterproductive meetings, which leads to very little actual work being done.

    Cons

    This small company is family owned and they do not even try to hide their nepotistic behavior. No matter what they tell you during an interview (the interviews are really ridiculous and just lies), there is little to no room for promotions because it is such a small company. If you do happen to get a "promotion", they will slap some silly new title on your business card and then you will probably get fired. All of the top positions are held by the family or "significant others" of the family. They will expect you to be available at all times. Their "business" hours are from 9am to 5:30pm, but there is an unwritten rule that you should be there from 8:30am to at least 6:30pm/7:00pm. Unfortunately, most people that have been working there for a while and know these unwritten rules will not even tell a new employee because they know that it is probably better for that new employee to just get fired instead of suffering the torture that is Tronex. All of this companies' actions are completely reactionary and they have absolutely no foresight to plan properly, which leads to a lot of finger pointing and senior "management" putting the blame on some poor sap, usually resulting in a firing. There is literally a revolving door on the front of their building with new and old employees spinning in and out. Tronex does not have a Human Resource department because any person that works in that position gets fired for advising the owners about their unethical and horrible behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every employee in that building has an exceptional fear of you and an exceptional lack of respect for you. You should be happy that people are willing to come in every day and put up with your psychological abuse. Perception is not reality because your version of reality is something out of a horror movie. "Micromanagement" is a negative term. Nobody trusts you or your decisions. Do not expect people to do things that you would never do yourself.

    Pros

    . . . if you ever hoped for taking 20 years off your life. A slow, tortuous death is easier than dealing with these narcissists!! The boorish, bullying, arrogant, blame-laying, credit-grabbing monsters will haunt your days and nights.

    Cons

    Some employees are good - but happen to be stuck in a horrible place. It's difficult to watch others suffer if you happen to be off the radar at the moment. Do not trust anyone!!! DOL should investigate unethical business practices on many levels, shut them down and save human lives!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do random drug-testing!! The only way to survive is to be heavily medicated - more than you're aware!! YOU are "dangers to the company!"

    Pros

    An air of respect and candid discussions of goals, obstacles. Opportunity to think strategically and self-direct. Family company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really smart people work here. Let them shine. Give them a bit more slack on time off.

    Pros

    You can feel smarter than most if you took a basic English Language course in school.

    If you are wearing something that is thought to be "cheap" you will get a chance to be taken on a shopping spree!

    Cons

    You can be told that you can't speak proper English by somebody who uses "........" after every 2 words in a "professional" email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry about your own work rather than finding the faults in others. You waste so much of your time trying to beat down your own staff that nothing gets accomplished.

    I have been working at Tronex Company

    Pros

    Jeans day once a month & the keurig machine

    Cons

    This is the craziest environment I have ever found myself in. You are punished if you use your vacation time, you are punished if you say the wrong word...you basically walk around like a scared puppy dog hoping that you don't get fired. However, usually, if you are getting fired, the whole office will know before you do. Most likely you will get a call the night beforehand. That is how unethical this company is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an actual management team who are able and willing to manage properly and provide advise and direction to their employees. Right now it is "a sea of people running from Tsunami's!" If you work here....you understand what we deal with... Also, the function of the BCC should be removed from Outlook. If you want to tell somebody something, then tell them. Don't try to email one individual and BCC the other 50....they will find out...doesn't make sense.

    Pros

    Office Culture is Asian with respect the main concern. Employees are respectful to each other thru the guidance of leadership. Small company mentality with big ideas, but no vision on how to execute.

    Cons

    Office Culture is Asian with respect the main concern, but little to no respect for Employees. Great coworkers, but everyone is fearful. No trust in the employees or their abilities. Warehouse is disorganized and has questionable safety issues. No break room or area to eat lunch. Vacation is discouraged and non flex time makes it difficult for working parents. Human Resources is nonexistent only grievances are to Senior Management which are the problem.
    Small niche company feeling the growing pains. In order to achieve next level need to make aggressive changes are stay small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire an consulting firm to reorganize the structure and to investigate warehouse safety. As the company expands they need to invest in better systems and infrastructure. They have small problems, but if they decide to grow these problems with become explosive. Management lack of communication about future plans and direction leave employees confused and uncertain about Tronex.

    I worked at Tronex Company full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't know that there are any Pros.

    Cons

    Expectations from management are vague at best. There is next to zero direction with high expectations. There is a certain element of fear the employees have of management. This is by design. The culture is very negative and driven by how the company is perceived by the world outside. The company has very high turnover and is not concerned by it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some classes on effective leadership.

    Pros

    Very intelligent senior management whom have a strong knowledge base on the various industries we deal with. Compensation is competitive. Good work/life balance. Excellent opportunities for growth if you're committed and put in the work.

    Cons

    Senior Management sometimes gives mixed message sometimes. Undermanned in certain areas which poses excess stress on the rest of the team.

    Pros

    Jeans day on Friday and gets lunch break.
    Once a while everybody gets the chance to stand in the line to applause and praise the great leader. Ridiculous. Eye open experience.

    Cons

    They are so proud of being minority owned American company. But it's actually Chinese owned company. I have no words to this company simply run by fear in less than 6 months. Please read all the review above except the first one, they had marketing people to write the first review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management were made by default through growth of company, lack leadership skills at all. President is indecisive and a bossy lady runs the company that leads the fail.
