    There is nothing I can say that will help management do their job any better!

    Pros

    Thomas & Betts is a great company to work for in Memphis. One reason is for their exceptional competitive benefits. Another strong reason is the ability to grow in your position.

    Cons

    Since ABB acquired Thomas & Betts there has been a small shake up in the management as well as the individual departments. The majority of the "shake up" has caused positive reactions, however it does make other employees nervous.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build up employees through "hands-on" experience.

    I have been working at Thomas & Betts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The amount of real-world problem solving experiences are countless. All of the people who work here are a great resource for one another, and there is an increasingly large amount of people with "open-door" policies. Safety is of the utmost importance, and there is a culture at T&B Albuquerque that should be adopted by all manufacturing plants across the U.S.A. Production and ownership of the market are also very alluring facets of this particular company and manufacturing plant.

    Cons

    There are a lot fewer cons than there are pros for Thomas & Betts. One of its cons would most likely have to involve an established mentorship program for incoming employees and RCGs. Another facet that could use work would be the resources that are given to employees.

    Advice to Management

    The slight change in meeting with manufacturing plants has become a very good culture for Thomas & Betts. Many times, senior management tends to come out of touch with the production at the ground-level. And, in order to help create long-lasting, meaningful solutions for the company, whether you're a hands-on or theoretical learner, you need to see and experience production for yourself.

    Pros

    Great Products, well financed and excellent leadership team with vision and direction.

    Cons

    They require a non-compete to be signed before employment. The car plan requires you to purchase your own vehicle and maintain it for reimbursement later.

    Advice to Management

    More communication with the field.

    Pros

    The pros of this company are that they are a Fortune 500 Company, employee over 10,000 employees, and have a very strong stock. They have been a company since 1898, and have the infrastructure, engineering, human resources, and all other important departments very well organized.

    Cons

    Although it was founded 116 years ago, it is still not a very well known company. Hopefully, its employee base can grow now that they are a subsidiary of the ABB Group.

    Advice to Management

    There need to be more connections through social media, as it is the future of all companies. Without social media, the company will cease to compete in the age of information.
