      I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Over the years that I have worked for Tripp Lite I have been provided numerous opportunities and recognized for my hard work. The company has a tried-and-true product line and a good reputation with customers and partners. It rewards employees with bonuses (annually and for record months) as well as holiday and summer company parties. The people I work with are great and I can sincerely say I enjoy coming to work every...

      Cons

      401k match should be improved, and there are a lot of processes that are paper-based that should be converted to be done electronically (although this is happening slowly). Remote employees can sometimes feel they are on an island.

      Advice to Management

      The company is full of good people. Continue to encourage their professional growth and it will keep morale high.

      Pros

      Great Work Life Balance! Tripp Lite recognizes that people make the organization and keeping employees happy and healthy helps to improve the bottom line, keeps you motivated and makes it easy to come to work. Even when you have to work a few extra hours the fun activities throughout the year sponsored by the wellness committee help to keep your stress at a minimum and your outlook positive. I’m sure this has helped...

      I worked at Tripp Lite full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Tripp Lite is a great company for people who are self starters and inherently motivated. Management rarely discounts a bad idea and promotes creativity and work ethic. If you find an area you could improve or a new market with potential you are encouraged to go after it and rewarded if the results are positive. The entire time I was there Tripp showed double digit growth and gave out enormous cash bonuses every year...

      Cons

      If you're looking to be babysat this place isn't for you. The freedom they give to self starters can drive people expecting structure and daily direction crazy. For every successful person there are 5 who left because they couldn't take it. Tripp isn't for everyone but for those who can operate in this environment its a place to maximize your potential and be recognized for it.

      Pros

      I am thankful for my time at Tripp Lite. I learned from a great leader and was recognized and promoted for hard work. VP of Channel Sales recognized top sales people and hard workers through positive recognition, sales contests, and quarterly awards. He worked closely with me on my professional development and to build a progression plan for internal promotion. The channel sales team was provided the technical resources,...

      Cons

      Overall company culture was "old school" in many ways. When I worked there, there were paper signature approval processes, approval required at highest level for low dollar amounts, and benefits need improvement (parental leave, vacation time, richer 401K match). Like most smaller companies, there is a greater opportunity to be recognized, but as you move closer to the top, you're limited in long-term career advancement.

      Advice to Management

      I encourage Tripp Lite to embrace technology to provide a more modern and efficient work environment internally.

      I have been working at Tripp Lite

      Pros

      Tripp Lite is a big company, but the employees are treated as if it's a 'mom and pop' shop. I believe the president knows everyone by name, or at least that seems to be a goal of his. The personal touch makes a big difference in morale. There are lots of opportunities to grow, and I have taken good advantage of that. The work environment is casual, but make no mistake - the work requirements are not casual at all....

      Cons

      Overall, the benefits are quite good. Health insurance is really good, compared to some of my peers in other companies, but the 401K match could be improved. Still, overall, very good benefits.

      I worked at Tripp Lite full-time

      Pros

      Cares about employees Lots of employee incentives Not the kind of job you take home with you Mostly laid back atmosphere Owner and President take care of employees

      Cons

      Not a lot of growth opportunities Old school mentality across the board Inter-office communications - there are too many obstacles to overcome in order to complete some pretty basic tasks - mainly expenses and anything trade show related

      Advice to Management

      First, be open to change. Then, actually implement change. There is some great talent at the company and including some young blood in decision-making processes could be quite beneficial.
