    I worked at Thomas & Betts (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not many pro's -
    You can get some wiggle room before you sign paperwork about pay & other things
    Thats all for now - not room for much

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't really lead or manage - expectations are to be understood almost by magic and mind reading tricks for what they want you to do (at all positions it seems) seemed like this across company
    No encouragement of bettering self outside company offered courses
    bit of a good old boys club

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive salary, can't think of anything else. A very kindergartenesque work environment. Everybody is more interested in keeping an eye on everybody rather than doing their own work.

    Cons

    No awareness of industry standard design practices. Engineers are hired to do drafting work. Everything is legacy based, haven't seen actual engineering work being done.

    Advice to Management

    Hire drafters and techs instead of engineers, your wage bill will be lower and everybody will be happy with what they are doing. If proper engineering methods are followed the trial and error approach and the I think that's why it's failing can be taken out.

    Cons

    Don't have one to offer.
