What is health insurance like at TTP?

Pros

Employee ownership and general culture of wanting to share the business success Great benefits (especially bonus, health insurance) Generally bright and intelligent staff Culture of self starters

Cons

Opaque pay and career structure. Your manager decides what he thinks you are worth and there is no opportunity for discussion. Flat structure allows a few managers to wield great power without any oversight or much accountability. This can lead to limited scope for individuals to grow and develop. Group leaders become single point failures in that they are responsible for driving the group's sales, technical quality, staff development/progression, project delivery and recruitment. This is too much for one person and one aspect will be neglected. Commercial success and 'talking the talk' is generally valued more highly than delivering technically valuable work. Desire to avoid any process often requires reinventing the wheel for each new project. High fee rates fit better with paper research and prototyping tasks reducing the number of opportunities to work on larger scale engineering projects.

Advice to Management

Encourage more dialogue across the business and reconsider the flat structure. Improve transparency in the pay process and encourage feedback at all levels. Encourage internal projects and strategic investments outside of the overview of group leaders.

Great benefits (especially bonus, health insurance)

Does TTP offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

Very intelligent and experienced colleagues Your professional development is taken seriously and people are very willing to help you develop Lots of opportunities to expand your skills and get involved in new things Exposed to a range of different and interesting projects from the get go People are generally very kind and friendly Freedom to explore things that spark your interest There are good benefits: good pension, yearly bonus, awarded extra time off sometimes, and free lunches, etc.

Cons

Diversity is not great, most of the company are white oxbridge men. It would be good to see more diversity but the company do acknowledge this. Regular working from home is not allowed. This is not a company where you can expect to be allowed to work from home once a week or so. It seems quite a political topic. If you want this flexibility, this is not the company for you.
