    I have been working at TPI Composites full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good hardworking staff
    The Xmas party

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible
    No loyalty to employees
    Treated like a number
    Too much emphasis on upper management making money
    Safety is a joke too many people getting injured
    Production floor bathrooms and kitchen are disgustingly filthy

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people like numbers so you can line your own pockets. Senior management does not understand the contributions of good employees and only rewards those who drink the corporate koolaid. CEO has lost interest in loyal employees and has purposely been blinded to a majority of issues and problems at local sites. Used to be a great place to work but no longer. If you want to live at your job and work 60+ hours with no recognition go ahead and apply.

    Pros

    Hard working staff and small department team building gatherings and the Christmas Party.

    Cons

    Discrminate against people with disabilities.
    More focused on the bottom line and less on employee welfare.
    Salaried employees expected to work more hours then there salary compensates for. Upwards of 80 hours a week at times.
    Required to climb ladders to unsafe heights while carrying heavy equipment.
    No assistance from upper management on real problems, but nit pick at non company issues.
    No bathroom facilities for female employees in the prodution areas. Only female bathrooms in office areas.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and stop discriminating!
    Provide a safer cleaner work environment.

    Pros

    Coworkers are amazing. Work can be easy but there is alot to learn. Pay is great, there are incentives too.

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible. Too much micromanagement. Also you can clearly tell who they play favorites with.

    Advice to Management

    Get out there and work like the rest of the team, quit trying to reinvent the wheel!

    Pros

    A growing company with lots of opportunities to learn and develop. Strong leadership, and a progressive attitude toward current and developing markets.

    Cons

    Rate of growth is a challenge. Finding and developing current team members, and finding new folks with the right skills is difficult

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that they don't over reach on objectives and growth, without the resources to support.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, great team and always new challenges as the company grows. The company has produced year over year results. There is a global manufacturing foot print and more sites being evaluated. From start of new factory construction to when the lines go live, it's all hands on deck.

    Cons

    There are obstacles to overcome but nothing that we can't work through. It's an interesting time to be in renewable energy in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic about the timing and resources projects actually take. Lean teams so teammates wear many hats yet sometimes people get burnt out.
