    Pros

    The employees you work with.

    Cons

    Mandatory work days, they tell you that you have every other Friday off, then make it mandatory. No room for growth unless your are related to, married to, or friends with upper management. Men make more then the women in the same areas. Intimidation seems to be the normal. Very cliche among upper management. Special trips , secret benefits .

    Advice to Management

    Try treating the normal employees the way you treat upper management. Use to be benefits were worth the grief, but they suck now. And stop blaming the merger for your problems, you use that to justify taking away benefits and we should be seeing a reduction because we have more employees now.

    Pros

    There is work, alot. Not really anything positive to da about this place
    .

    Cons

    Work 6 days a week or more. No pay raises which they promised. Health benefits suck. Bad management of time. Engineers don't know what their doing. Supervisors don't want to help out when ur short staff. They give females special schedules so they don't have to work weekends. They call their selves owners of departments because they work you like a slave and treat you as they own you. The supervisors and management don't really know or do their jobs correctly. They care more about the floors being clean and the shop looking good rather than caring about employees or the product they make.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or quit cause you all are idiots and will bankrupt this company. Start caring more about your employees than your customers first. Give people weekends off to be with their families or you come work late at night 7 days a week. The Youngstown plant management sucks! Give a fricken raise to people you cheap bastards, or were gonna form a union and demand ur resignation.

    Pros

    Located close to home. Good charitable contributions during the holidays. Sometimes nice things are done for employee recognition in the form if a gift card.

    Cons

    Poor communication skills within departments and between management and its production associates. Last minute "mandatory overtime " and if you don't go in you get written up.

    Advice to Management

    Management shows favoritism boldly and blatantly. Recognize that we're all human and not perfect. Plant manager doesn't acknowledge you unless you are a member of his inner circle.

    Pros

    It was tyco electronics when i started working. With lots of overtime and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Nothing but cons… we the employes refer it as a nazi camp. They treat their employee worst than a hunter would treat its prey. They would publicly humiliate their employee, lie to them and slowly taking away everything they could. Once the upper management of the company called every one present in the quarterly meeting, and i quote "you all suck" another time the whole team was told "you guys are selfish". You the readers should get the idea now.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop being abusive to your employees and give them the respect they deserve.

    I worked at TTM Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There were many great people working at the facility.The paycheck did not bounce. At the time the work was steady if you were thick skinned enough to stick through it.

    Cons

    Very poor upper management. Poor middle management. Poor communication between facilities. Employees were treated as a necessary inconvenience.

    Advice to Management

    Start by treating ALL employees who have shown proven dedication with the same level of respect you would expect to be extended to you. TTM was rife with a penny wise pound foolish mentality. The lip service extended to employees was transparent and insulting.

    Pros

    There is nothing good about working for this company

    Cons

    This company expected us to work 30+ hours overtime, then laid people off because we made too much money. They also drove my plant into the ground. They sent 100+ jobs to China. They took any order worth any money and gave it to Santa Ana. We were then given all the junk Santa Ana did not want to build. One Santa Ana employee was allowed to make changes to computers which took down 5+ other departments and that was ok with management.

    Advice to Management

    Entire board should be replaced for mismanagement.

    Pros

    Expect 8-5 hours. Good learning experience if you have an interest in that electronics. The santa ana division was always safe from layoff fevers.

    Cons

    Was very underworked, you can only browse the web for so much. The company is extremely corporate, meaning unless you're a manager, you're a 2nd class citizen. No room for growth. Come here for a job, go somewhere else for a career.

    Advice to Management

    stop allowing people who have no business making big IT decisions make them. Just because they're a buddy from the company that was acquired, or you thought your secretary had a great idea doesn't make it acceptable.
