    Pros

    Good work environment where most people are friendly and polite.

    Cons

    Lots of tenure here so your chance of moving up is limited until people retire. Management can block you from applying to another position within the company if they don't want you moving

    Pros

    Loved the leadership in the Orange County, CA office. My manager Zairreus was the best
    Mentor I've ever had! They are good people. Loved all of it.

    Cons

    Can't think of much... I just thought electronic components were boring!

    Advice to Management

    Keep being honest and fair!

    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****

    Pros

    Great bosses and your first year you get a 50 cent raise every 3 months for hitting your quotas

    1,500 deductible then they pay 80%. Highest raise per year is 50 cents after your initial 12mo

    Advice to Management

    Higher raises.

    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.

    I have been working at TTI Texas full-time

    Pros

    Stable Company, owned by Berkshire Hathaway.
    People are number 1 importance
    Electronics is never going away
    Invest in inventory and people
    Excellent Training

    Cons

    Because it is stable and they make good business decision they also pay the least of its competitors.
    You must work in a branch to move up and grow with the company. No very many growth opportunities at Corporate office or other corporate building.

    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.

    Good Co workers and nice bonuses around the holiday season. Good food at lunch. Updated computers

    Cons

    Bad management , smelly bathrooms and lunchrooms, no parking spaces for senior management. No company cars or apartments

    Advice to Management

    Stop making your employees pay for their lunch and reissue the cards that have been taken away. Some of us like to eat at night

    We are certainly confused by this review, and as you can see from other reviews on TTI (the electronics distributor) and from what you describe, we are not sure you are reviewing the same company.
