Service Manager (Current Employee) – International Businees Park – May 5, 2018
Find challenging in managing people around myself. It requires patience, competency, able to lead, and listening ear in order to get things done. First and foremost I must like to deal with people. The workplace should be promoted as amicable and non-hostile environment. Keep things in short and sharp (KISS method). The hardest part of the job is about human relationship when comes to managerial role. As long as one believes in sincerity and integrity, people tends to work closer with him or her. The most enjoyable part of the job is to achieve the work done either a small step and or a big step. I am proud in serving people around me and the company.
They offer you one job buy the end of the month you will have 3 with no compensation in pay there hiring a lot of temps when things get slow they let them all go or they let you go before they need to hire temp dead end job with no advancement
Job description didn't tell the full picture of actual work that would be done. It forgot to include that this is a 90% phone role. This is not a "computer programming" role, but a "trutops programming" which is nowhere near the same thing.
Only technical support you do, is data migrations or software setup. Only way to get ahead is to become proficient in their proprietary software "boost" which companies use to cut their mateirals on Trumpf machines.
If you're looking for a job and think this is computer support, stay away. There is nothing "software engineer" related for this position.

Manufacturing subset based in Central Jersey. A fast growing segment of the business in US. Creates powerful tools for manufacturing metal products but beseeched with disorganization and employee morale issues. German business mindset is, at times, incompatible with American know-how and expectations. Management style leans towards the ridiculous, emphasizing on office politics. Staff does not have confidence in leadership. Would not recommend a long term stay, just enough to gain experience and make a better salary elsewhere.
Plant shutdown between Christmas and New Year's (i.e., company vacation)
Paid 1 a month. Probationary wait for benefits (vacation, 401k) which are basic not great. Pay is ok at best. Some managers are abysmal.
my job experience was fair. i felt that after working for the company for just under five years, i became more familiar with the knowledge that the more social you are with your co workers and mangers outside of work, the farther you will get within the company. i think that is just not fair to those who like to keep their personal life and work life completely separate. Which is very much how i operate.
good benefits / good PTO
poor management is some departments, not enough money for harder working departments

I've loved working for TRUMPF. If you work hard, get along well with your coworkers, and work to make yourself an asset to the company, there are opportunities for you to advance. I've had very positive experiences here for the 10 years I've been with the company. This is a company where the senior staff is humble, down-to-earth. That alone sets them apart.
This is a great place to work, I have grown professionally in the two years that I have been with Trumpf. I would highly recommend working here. The work environment is stimulating and challenging, as well as rewarding.

Workplace environment is ever changing and the travel is awesome, however the travel can be upwards of 95% not leaving very much time for family and friends. While the benefits are great and the people you work both with and for are outstanding, the only real drawback is the time you have to devote to the job. Everyone is very friendly and super helpful and the most enjoyable part of the job is really dependent upon your own personal preference. I love working with others but as this is a predominantly solo position (you will be out on your own majority of the time) that leaves little time for socializing. As a family man, being away from mine was honestly the toughest aspect of the job.
Excellent benefits; awesome coworkers and management team
Alone majority of the time; very little time with family and friends

The best at training the people to do their job. But be aware... you will travel 100% of the time. Good pay and benefits. Everyone willing to provide their expertise to ensure you get the job done right.

Face paced working environment with continuous exposure to leading edge technology. Supportive co-workers intent upon providing exceptional customer support. Assisting companies find solutions to thier manufacturing and production requirements was the most satisfying aspect of my job.
Laser Production Technician (Current Employee) – Cranbury, NJ – August 28, 2016
Trumpf is a multicultural work place with a great work environment very laid back and comfortable place to work. A typical day at work is very productive , fun , and very challenging when it comes to troubleshooting the product. I've learned many different things about laser manufacturing testing and troubleshooting and also repair. Management and coworkers work together to produce product. the hardest part of the job is the commute. The most enjoyable part of the job is being productive reaching the goals and looking forward to bonuses.

Trumpf is not a bad place to work out of high school. there are no placement. you do the same thing every single day. no way to move up even if your doing your best. they pick who they want in different positions.
