      Tunnel vision sales focus means customer service and product quality is an afterthought

      May 10, 2021 - Technical Product Support Specialist in Chicago, IL

      Pros

      Weekly paycheck deposits at 1 am without failure, had some decent parties prior to Covid, never saw anyone fired for incompetence in 13 years, Product Support is likely desperate and will hire you regardless of whether you have qualifications or not.

      Cons

      The only way to get ahead is by getting hired with a nepotistic advantage of some kind as the company is rife with execs and managers being married or otherwise related to each other in ways I often found shockingly unprofessional. This makes it easy to burn your career there by stepping on the wrong toes but no one will tell you this until it’s too late. Product Support itself is a directionless, shambolic disaster with management being far more concerned with serving the sales org and not the users of the products you are expected to placate when the product has failed. Aggressively invasive, condescending micromanagement takes the place of actual leadership because none is provided. Environment is physically and emotionally toxic and low morale. Compensation is pathetic for the level of sophistication. You will endlessly be told that you are the one who sucks for advocating for change.

      401K match is terrible Low pay Minimum holiday pay and low vacation time Workload can be unfairly divided. Some employees work overtime every single week and some employees barely have enough work to keep them busy.

      Pros

      Product engineering, product managers, and sales engineers are the spirit of the company. They are the best in their field and truly care about the company and their customers.

      Cons

      Several layers of middle management limit career advancement and independent thinking. Micromanagement is harmful to culture and morale.

      Pros

      The only good thing about tripplite that I have not seen in other companies is that they give you the chance to move around frequently to try and learn new things only if you a good worker.

      Cons

      A lot of favoritism to temps. Supervisor don’t know how to talk , they talk how ever they want to anyone bathrooms are dirty. Only, one person comes to clean per day. Warehouse very dusty.
