    I worked at Tripp Lite full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I am thankful for my time at Tripp Lite. I learned from a great leader and was recognized and promoted for hard work. VP of Channel Sales recognized top sales people and hard workers through positive recognition, sales contests, and quarterly awards. He worked closely with me on my professional development and to build a progression plan for internal promotion. The channel sales team was provided the technical resources,...

    Cons

    Overall company culture was "old school" in many ways. When I worked there, there were paper signature approval processes, approval required at highest level for low dollar amounts, and benefits need improvement (parental leave, vacation time, richer 401K match). Like most smaller companies, there is a greater opportunity to be recognized, but as you move closer to the top, you're limited in long-term career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I encourage Tripp Lite to embrace technology to provide a more modern and efficient work environment internally.

    I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time

    Pros

    Privately owned - family atmosphere with great and knowledgeable co-workers. Open to new ideas. A positive culture change is going on with upper leadership which is trickling down. The company is agile and thinks outside the box.

    Cons

    Sales incentive/commission program could use some improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward.

    I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Like most things in life, you only get out what you put in. Tripp Lite gives you all the on-the-job training, support, and direction needed to start or continue a successful career for one of Chicago's largest privately held companies. One of the best ways to know employee satisfaction with a company is tenure. Tripp Lite has multiple employees who have been there 30, 35, 45+ years (there is a running joke that anyone...

    Cons

    *401K match (or lack thereof) could be improved * Too much red tape for approvals on internal processes which can negatively affect business * Still a high reliance on paper-based processes. We need to move fully forward into the digital landscape

    Advice to Management

    Keep continuing the focus on improving collaboration between departments; the more we work together as a team, the more successful we will be.
