    Pros

    A family owned company that is partially owned by a private equity company. You will get the small company feel and have access to interact with senior leadership. Trojan also allows you to have a good work life balance. I left the company only because I was presented with a unique career opportunity that I couldn't pass up. However, I enjoyed my time working there and would highly recommend.

    Cons

    PPO insurance option is expensive but HMO is also available

    I worked at Trojan Battery Company (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people. The upper management has an open door policy which is great.

    Cons

    Need to work a little on company culture with regards to making it more fun. Exciting. Although the people are nice, the environment does get boring.

    Advice to Management

    Implement activities during the week to increase employee camaraderie. Make the work environment more lively. Liven it up.

    I worked at Trojan Battery Company full-time

    Pros

    Salary is in line with industry standards, there were annual bonuses and raises for employees.

    Cons

    Environment is one where "he who yells the loudest wins" this behavior is tolerated and respected. I attended meetings where managers did not communicate professionally, I was surprised to see such behavior when outside the meeting room a sign was posted with "meeting etiquette" which included "no yelling". Know what you are getting into if you go to this place, management does not hesitate to disrespect one another.

    Advice to Management

    Those in charge need better "people" skills.

    "Short Term Project Consultant"

    Pros

    Contracted for a short project for their lead acid batteries. Very friendly staff and very accommodating with follow up emails and questions.

    Cons

    Fellow contractors only met with engineering team and not upper management but the engineering team was still very friendly.

    Advice to Management

    I was not on board long enough to see how management was but from what it seemed, the employees I talked to were happy with their jobs.
