    Pros

    At the overall level, TR is a great company to work for with wonderful values, great initiatives and benefits.

    Cons

    TR is a global company with stark differences in work life balance, pay and mgmt support based on the region and division/area in which you work. There are large inconsistencies even within the same team based on the region in which you are employed. There are also some managers who are too afraid to lose employees that they hold them back from moving on in their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing the number of face to face visitations with team members in other regions. You cannot really understand the impact on employees over a conference call. Don't lose sight of where you came from and of the people you have working for you. If you mentor and encourage your employees, they become better and you should encourage them and give them a push and chance to move on and better their career. Never smother or hold back a good employee because you think they make you look better. It really makes you look bad that you are not encouraging them to move forward.
