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

    Pros

    Some people are nice, bathrooms cleaned daily, trees to park under in parking lot, kind of comical to watch management hit on the young college girls they hired

    Cons

    Aging workforce with no desire to fix it. Salary was subpar and I was repeatedly told to make more money at TTI was to leave and work somewhere else then come back. Managers told me this multiple times along with ones that have done it themselves. This makes no sense to me at all! Why not invest to keep them if your willing to hire them later? The 401k sucks! They contribute .25 for every $1 up to 6%. Fully vested in 3years. End of 2016 they told employees their raises would be capped at like 1.5% because sales were down and they were building a new facility. The company makes plenty of money and it's not the employees fault you chose to put up a new building. Healthcare blows too. High costs on all fronts from paycheck deductions to when you actually do visit the doctor $100+. Some of this is curbed by the $250 they give you semi annually directly to your health savings account but it goes quick god forbid you get sick. There are way to many VP's at this company. Carpet is old and dated. All the old people get sick and start coughing causing the sickness to spread. The vents haven't been cleaned in what seems 20years and dust is visible in grates. Smoking is allowed outside and it seems half the people smoke, so if your a person cautious about their health I would avoid. They allowing smoking in "designated areas" but people don't follow the rules and you can smell it. I am surprised the city hasn't fined them yet. I wouldn't be surprised if this company tanks within 10years. Warehouse workers started to flee to Amazon and other jobs coming to the area because they paid more with better benefits. Buyers and product managers flee to other jobs or competitors because of better pay.
    ****Lastly they have been begging/forcing people to post good reviews here on Glassdoor because they were getting slammed so take some reviews on here with a grain of salt****

    I worked at TTI Texas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some flexibility in your schedule as long as you're friends with management.
    2 weeks vacation
    1 week PTO
    Nothing other than that.

    Cons

    Pay sucks
    Hard to move up or move laterally
    Say they promote from inside between 6-9 months- LIES
    Don't give raises
    Interview you for one thing and then switch it to a lesser paid version of same job. I.e. Sales/ customer service.
    Expensive benefits
    Threat tactics type of management style. They want you to be scared of them.
    They think of you as expendable.
    Beware. Do not work here!

    As long as you have your head up managements butt and agree with EVERYTHING THEY SAY AND DO. Then you'll do fine.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. They don't listen to their employees so we've stopped talking. No use in fighting a losing battle.

    Pros

    Great collaboration from team members and team leads within BDG. Management is sure to reward great performances in terms of portfolio/ account growth. Very professional environment and approachable upper management

    Cons

    Training is good but it doesn't really prepare you as much to be able to use their quotation system. Computers are old and are in need of upgrades

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to find other ways to properly reward employees for their performance.

    Very relaxed environment, and pride themselves on a culture of hard work and continuous growth

    I do not have any negatives about this company. Had an exceptional experience but was unable to be close to family

    The culture you preach to future employees is very true and is a huge plus for those relocating to work for TTI Inc.

    I have been working at TTI Texas full-time

    Pros

    TTI is a really great company with a lot job stability. It's a place you can start a career, grow within the company, and retire.

    My favorite part is the culture. There are always events and fun things going on during the holidays. Also, the people are amazing! Very friendly and always helpful.

    Cons

    TTI is very traditional. No casual Fridays and hours are a set 8-5, rather than a flex time schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible and open-minded to change.

    I have been working at TTI Texas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to schedule time off when you want/need it. Good family-value oriented company with 42+ years of solid, stable business. Sales has some flexibility to manage portfolios; good education benefit (but watch fine print).

    Cons

    Few opportunities to advance, low pay for the industry, difficult to get reviewed/get a raise, not even a small cost of living increase. Years between reviews. Inconsistent management methods and no way for employees to provide critical feedback without backlash. Many long term employees do not feel valued because there is no incentive to stay. "Lucky to have a job" only goes so far, even in this economy. Sales staff can't see true cost of parts or 'back of house' discounts or deals being made at the corporate level, so at the end of the month, there isn't any way to tell exactly what the profit margin is (this figures into monthly bonus). Difficult to know what bonus will be month-to-month because of an overly-complicated pay plan. There is a maze of managers to go through to get pricing or special deals to quote customers, so quoting can take longer than the customer wants to wait. Salespeople not supported enough by support staff - sales does collections/accounting work, all order entry and management. Loads of time is spent performing administrative duties instead of selling. Sales staff are pressed to make deals to help management make their numbers and get their bonuses, but every point of profit given up means less money for the sales guy. Managers are paid on different dollar numbers, so a bad deal can still mean a good payday for a manager. Benefits are not anything special, and have been reduced significantly over the past 10 years. Very poor car allowance for outside sales. Yes, they have a 401k, but matching is minimal; insurance is really pretty lame, considering it's a Berkshire Hathaway company/ total #s of employees company-wide, not just at the corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to pay your sales staff better, increase transparency in the costs of things so commissioned employees know what they're earning. Give employees a way to talk about issues without fearing being fired for doing so.
