    I worked at Tripp Lite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance Lots of perks for corporate based employees Great Health Benefits Strong customer following

    Cons

    Private company that is way to conservative when it comes to investing to grow business Archaic processes for travel, everything is still done via printed memos that require layers of signatures Hire smart people and then tell them what to do instead of allowing the employees to run their business as needed Sales Departments are silo'd and compete against one another.

    Advice to Management

    Same as what others have said before, needless process and paperwork will bury any chance of real exponential growth unless you really invest in the channel. Open up the lines of communication between departments, promote collaboration and stop putting up road blocks in sales who's only purpose are to ensure you do not pay out more than absolutely needed on sales revenue.

      Cons

      401k match should be improved, and there are a lot of processes that are paper-based that should be converted to be done electronically (although this is happening slowly). Remote employees can sometimes feel they are on an island.

      Advice to Management

      The company is full of good people. Continue to encourage their professional growth and it will keep morale high.

      Pros

      Great product set to sell, excellent presales support.
