    I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company likes feeding it's employees. There are a few company outings, beer Fridays and we're off for all major holidays. They have health screenings, occasional tickets to the symphony and discounted pricing for sports events.

    Cons

    Not enough money and PTO. Management has an old method of doing business. The chain of command is redundant and managers communicate poorly. Sales reps are rude and pushy.

    Pros

    Some great people. Some upper management leaders are interested in the growth of the company and it’s people.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Almost 90 % of the company is elderly LOTS of paper Unnecessary systems and drama You have to make it in with certain people, or else any work you do is ignored.

    I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time

    Pros

    Privately owned - family atmosphere with great and knowledgeable co-workers. Open to new ideas. A positive culture change is going on with upper leadership which is trickling down. The company is agile and thinks outside the box.

    Cons

    Sales incentive/commission program could use some improvement.

    I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Like most things in life, you only get out what you put in. Tripp Lite gives you all the on-the-job training, support, and direction needed to start or continue a successful career for one of Chicago's largest privately held companies. One of the best ways to know employee satisfaction with a company is tenure. Tripp Lite has multiple employees who have been there 30, 35, 45+ years (there is a running joke that anyone under 10 years tenure is still considered a 'newbie'). <br> When I first started at Tripp Lite I was immediately treated like a member of my team. My manager has given me all the tools necessary to tackle the steep learning curve required to be an SME in over 4500 different products while also giving me the leeway to discover my own unique voice. I have a great relationship with many of my coworkers who have become friends outside of work. <br> In the relatively short time I've been at Tripp Lite, I have been trusted with more & more responsibilities which has led to opportunities for career development and growth. Work life balance is amazing; when you are there you will be expected to work your tail off (we have consistent year-over-year growth for a reason) but as soon as you walk out those doors you aren't expected to even think about work until the next business day. <br> Tripp Lite has some issues like every company does, but if you are willing to put in the work and genuinely care about your role at the company there is no limit to how far you can go.

    Cons

    *401K match (or lack thereof) could be improved * Too much red tape for approvals on internal processes which can negatively affect business * Still a high reliance on paper-based processes. We need to move fully forward into the digital landscape
