    I have been working at Thomas & Betts full-time

    Pros

    Job stability - obviously
    Decent pay

    Cons

    As a field engineer you are on call 24/7, which should be a trade off for great pay or great scheduling, or most weekends off; not at T&B, if you try to have any kind of work ethic they will take advantage until they have completely driven you into the ground. They are one of the greediest companies I've seen in my 30+ years of working in this industry. As people get sick o fit and quit, they just make the regions even bigger and expect you to absorb the workload. Weekends are non existent! The managers say whatever is necessary to pacify the employees with no intentions of improving working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance- look it up!

    Pros

    Well, I enjoy coming to work here, and the week seems to go by quickly. The corporate environment is professional, the engineering group is lean, cross functional, and team members are competent. You're given much latitude in the performance of your work, and the T&B people are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful.

    Cons

    Not since I've been here.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

    Pros

    Love my co-workers, my team leads and supervisors are great, and the machines can even sometimes be fun to run.

    Cons

    The pay. The hourly rate seems too low for the amount of effort they expect from you. There is also a constant stream of new employees; seemingly every week is a new batch because hardly any temps ever stay

    Advice to Management

    The high turnover and struggles to keep quality up (which is our customer's safety, as we say!) could be solved by giving your employees a better hourly pay rate. It is hard for the temps you bring in to feel motivated to stay and do good work when they feel they're not being properly compensated. With the amount of money the ABQ branch makes (and the other branches all over the world for that matter,) it's a little unfair to keep your employees just barely above the poverty line. "Just work overtime every day of the week!" isn't a proper solution to this problem either. It must also be taken into consideration how dangerous many of the machines can be, and how physically taxing it can get reaching the standard numbers.

    I love my job and my team, and I would really like to stay for many, many years, but I do worry about getting my bills paid. Please consider this!
