    I have been working at Thomas & Betts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products with brand recognition. Some great people have worked here in the past.

    Cons

    High-turnover and employees are not replaced. Your manager can make or break you. There are more bad incompetent managers than good ones. The territories changes, your job changes and your boss changes every 6-12 months. The company does not address issues. It is the company culture to not answers emails or phone calls. HR plays favorites and can kill your career with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to all the people that have left in 2016! They all had very good reasons to leave and no one seems to care or acknowledge that they are gone!

    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.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere with nice people.

    Cons

    Constant change, zero leadership and direction. They don't replace people who leave so they spread job responsibilities all over the place. People are spread way too thin.

    People are constantly being let go without warning. Its like being on a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to employees about their job security. You are creating an atmosphere of distrust.

    I worked at Thomas & Betts full-time

    Pros

    The job has potential with good floor employees that care about their workmanship on the senior shifts. There is a large breath of value streams that will allow the expansion of skill set and problem solving. . The intensity of the pace in manufacturing utilities and the liability makes ownership a must; driving continuous improvement.

    Cons

    The leadership team is dysfunctional without substantial break through in process improvement that translates into impacting safety issues, poor morale of floor line operators, and poor performance. The HR team is hot bed of gossip and backstabbing that promotes mistrust and inconsistent policy enforcement. Tenor management tends to camouflage their lack of ability by creating fires in other departments.They sell 100% electrically tested equipment with a potentially flawed testing methods. This is a place that tends to lean to shorten one's interest or ability to want to be part of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to clear them out and start over or move the plant
