    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Higher raises.

    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.

    Pros

    Great people
    Ok benefits
    Opportunity to learn and grow

    Cons

    Not as much work-life balance
    "remove" work not counted!
    Inflexible hours - no matter what department!

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your employees can still be productive, even when working remotely. You should count those hours of work towards their overall work-week and not force them to "make-up" those hours in the office. Be more flexible with hours, especially office employees. For the plant and warehouse employees, it makes sense to punch in and have everyone take the same exact lunch hour, but not the office employees. Also - be more open to modern technology and ways of doing things (i.e. progressive thinking). Doing business "old school" but trying to be innovative in marketing isn't going to gel or be cohesive. Be open to new things!

    I have been working at TTI Texas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TTI, Inc. is a 2.2 billion dollar global company, with locations throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. There are some really great people that work at TTI. Very good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch and do not trust their employees, benefits are practically non-existent, growth potential is very limited. Unless you are a sales person there is no bonus structure.

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to compete for the most talented people, you need to pay better, provide better benefits, and a bonus would be the icing on the cake.

    Pros

    TTI is a great place to work for the time being and maybe even for long term. The people are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    The pay is low and micromanaging is a big problem. People aren't recognized enough for the great job that they do.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and have faith in them! They'll get the job done. Treating your employees like kids will just make them ignore you more. Respect goes both ways.

    Pros

    Easy work in the warehouse, relaxed environment, nice co workers, air conditioned warehouse, overtime is plenty, management is fair, overall nice environment to work

    Advice to Management

    be less micromanaging, workers will get job done either way
