    I worked at Thomas & Betts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for training and learning experience, some hard working people, some good leaders/mentors, opportunities for those that want to work hard and are self motivated. Great place to start a career and build experience. Much like the saying, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger", you will either sink or swim at T&B.

    Cons

    In the years leading up to the sell off to ABB, decisions were often penny wise and dollar foolish . There was a lack of long term vision and long term investments to do what was right for the business. Some of us were work horses who pulled the wagon, while others were show horses who asked why the wagon wasn't being pulled faster. Sadly those who were show horses were not dealt with, and brought down others who pulled the wagon relentlessly.

    Advice to Management

    The book "Good to Great" should be given to all upper management, as T&B is at best a "Good" company. Management should follow the steps in the book, the first of which is to get the wrong people off the bus, and get the right people on the bus. The work/life balance could use some improvement, which is linked directly to the people(management) who need to be taken off the bus. If the problems in management could be addressed, the company could have potential.
