Great People to work with
Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHFebruary 15, 2018
I really enjoyed all of the people who worked at TSS. It was a relaxing and low stress environment, despite the fast pace we needed to work at. The work was varied enough to be challenging and building medical devices makes you feel like you accomplished something good at the end of the day.
Pros
Great People
Cons
Low Pay

Neat products
Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHFebruary 1, 2018
There were multiple divisions, so there were lots of different products that were machined with TSS. Standard production meetings occurred to keep the Job Shop schedule flexible for hot jobs, the schedule changed often to keep up with customer demand. Lots of production challenges but great atmosphere to learn and collaborate in.
Pros
Diverse product based
Cons

Stagnant workplace with seemingly careless operation
Assembler (Former Employee) –  OhioJanuary 25, 2018
On and off work load. Most days are hindered by constant lack of parts, which nobody ever knows where they are or when they'll arrive. Project leads seem careless, never have a straight answer for anything. Hiring just about anyone, regardless of experience and placing them in places ill suited for their skillset. Overall confusing a poor coordination and structure. Reluctant to give proper compensation, even when promised. Above and beyond work is gladly accepted but rarely rewarded. Some employees can get away with anything they want while others seem to be witch-hunted. Laid off good workers last summer, but kept very shady, lazy ones.

Overall, a poorly managed, stingy, stagnant job with an abrasive work environment. You're not likely to really get anywhere or learn anything interesting here.
Pros
Comfortable temperature, breaks, and lunch rooms
Cons
Mismanaged, employee favorites, lay-offs, stingy with wages, likely dead end job, unengaging and unfulfilling.

Chief Financial Officer (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHNovember 7, 2017
Most of these folks have been here forever. They are a good group. Everyone gets along and is a very good place. They are working to make their name in the Industrial Automation world. They are fair, well organized and family backed.

Dangerous work environment
Facilities Manager (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJune 2, 2015
I was the Facilities Maintenance Manager for Plant #4.

We (The Subordinate Managers) found that the Managing Director was "Cooking the Books" to make his annual Bonus for shipments.
He would intentionally ship KNOWN bad Aerospace Parts out to the customer under the Plant's Shipment Schedules and when they were returned as defective, the loss was applied to the General Operating Fund.
EVERY MANAGER from the Operations Manager to the line supervisors was "Laid Off" when it came out.
They also liked to move machines from one side of the building to the other.
OK.
I brought in Machine Riggers to do the work because they are professionals at this specialized type of work.
I was questioned on the costs and made a valid argument for them.
They were approved.
After I left, one of the Contract technicians, that we brought in from time to time, informed me that they were moving machines with "In House" labor and they dropped one of them and killed one of their employees.
I'd stay away from that company.
Pros
Lot's of Machine Rigging Experience
Cons
The work could kill you. Literally.

Dead end job
Assembler (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHMay 15, 2013
Climate controlled facility provides comfortable working environment. Typical small company which is top heavy with management. No opportunity for advancement. The more you do here, the more they'll let you do with no reward. Some work has been withdrawn from TSS by big name companies causing recent layoffs.
Pros
Comfortable environment.
Cons
Dead end job.

Office Personnel (Current Employee) –  Woodlawn, OhioJanuary 23, 2013
The company's working atmosphere is great. The people are knowlegable and easy to get along with. The work load has its peaks and valleys and there are times when it seems a little unbalanced.

Pros
employee profit sharing and bonus program
Cons
workload can be unbalanced at times.
