    I worked at Tripp Lite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance Lots of perks for corporate based employees Great Health Benefits Strong customer following

    Cons

    Private company that is way to conservative when it comes to investing to grow business Archaic processes for travel, everything is still done via printed memos that require layers of signatures Hire smart people and then tell them what to do instead of allowing the employees to run their business as needed Sales Departments are silo'd and compete against one another. Not uncommon for someone from another sales department...

    Advice to Management

    Same as what others have said before, needless process and paperwork will bury any chance of real exponential growth unless you really invest in the channel. Open up the lines of communication between departments, promote collaboration and stop putting up road blocks in sales who's only purpose are to ensure you do not pay out more than absolutely needed on sales revenue.

    I have been working at Tripp Lite full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Tripp Lite has a casual environment yet is full of people who are serious about their jobs. Many employees stick around their whole career- talent is generally recognized and rewarded. Work-life balance is as good as it gets. Room for advancement or movement within the company. Company has grown every year since employed.

    Cons

    Lack of 401k match. Can be behind on embracing technology at times.

    Advice to Management

    Work on becoming less paper-dependent in certain areas.

    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 have been working at Tripp Lite

    Pros

    A good work life balance culture. Open door policy on communication where everyone is approachable and decisions can be made quickly. Credible products and reputation in the marketplace. Very tenured employee base which is a favorable reflection of the company. Strong feeling of community in the workplace.

    Cons

    The sales commission plan needs and overhaul. It penalizes as well as rewards. Business units are siloes which creates negative competition internally. Archaic thinking toward flex schedules, "work at home" policies.

    Advice to Management

    Couple of tweaks internally and this would be a 5 star employer
