    I worked at TRUMPF full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime opportunity, Interesting job with great travel opportunity. Generally amicable workplace. Good employee loyalty

    Cons

    Hourly rate was low compared to amount of stress. Advancement in local office was limited. Fast turnover because of hours worked. Nebulous management (several new directors in a few years). Inconsistent work schedule, office hours were a significant pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    Do not take employees for granted; Do not reward bad behavior with field work, and punish good behavior with office time. Recognize the pay cut the workers take if they are a week in the office.

    I worked at TRUMPF (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Service Department is very supportive. Facility is great. Excellent training.

    Cons

    Newly designed machines are released into the market too early. The attitude seems to be one of letting the customer experience software "bugs" for Trumpf to fix. Income is sub-standard for the work effort.

    Advice to Management

    You won't be able to sell anything if you don't have Service personnel.
