    I worked at TPI Composites full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    I have been working at TPI Composites full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at TPI Composites full-time

    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.

    I have been working at TPI Composites full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked with TPI for 1 year and I truly love the opportunities that I have had with the company in such a short amount of time. I am able to assist the associates with their career goals, recognition and community contacts. I am also able to be out in the community helping to provide TPI with a positive outlook in the development of local projects such as fundraising, housing and transportation. I am very excited for what the future holds for wind energy and TPI Composites. TPI become a public company in July of 2016 and I am very excited to see what that will bring to Newton, IA.

    Cons

    I am not sure that I have any items that are negative with TPI. The associates and community have been welcoming and friendly with all of our events and activities. I also hope that TPI can move towards a more work/ life flexible platform so we have more opportunity to work from home when needed.

    Advice to Management

    TPI Iowa is growing and continues to be very busy and we feel very crowded in the office and in the plant. I wish that we could have more room to entertain community members, visitors and to provide more opportunities for onsite training. TPI Corporate is located in AZ and they are extremely accommodating and very receptive to any and all our needs.

    Pros

    location near home is less then one hour

    Cons

    No department communications in safety meeting-all hands; no respect to employees from management and corporate office, corporate office expects employees in Rhode Island office staff, to spoon feed information to executives and other employees in corporate that make more money when they do not know the software themselves. Employees in Rhode Island speak as if their in a trailer park. If your not with management or corporate your not included. Only executive can work from home access, their is no employee career advancement. If your interested in leaving departments they will not help you and expand in other avenues with in the same company.

    Advice to Management

    Company Re-organization starting with CEO (needs to go).

    Pros

    TPI is a great company to work for. Recently went public and there is excitement everywhere. Leaders care about their associates and the management team takes time to speak with associates when they make site visits.

    Cons

    With growth comes some growing pains but newly hired leaders are more focused on communication and engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with all levels of associates.

    Pros

    Other companies are hiring so you don't have to work here

    Cons

    The new leadership is lost and their philosophy has changed such that only the numbers matter. They do not care about anyone - just get the numbers so they can go public with their pending IPO, get paid, move on, and who cares about the anyone else
