Very disorganized!!!!!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sidney, NY

I have been working at Amphenol

ProsThe pay is one of the best around.

ConsConstantly moving bosses to different dept., very unorganized on how they get the work out on the floor, they are constantly changing how things are done

Advice to Senior ManagementIf they want more people to work the week end they should not make them do 8hrs at a time. We have lives out and would like to spend it with our family. They should ask the workers how they can improve things, instead of coming up with ideas of there own. The workers know whats going on, on the floor.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not a bad place, Typical ethnocentric German company

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Canton, MI

I worked at Amphenol

ProsFlexible work schedule
Little to no supervision on day-to-day activities, determine your own priorities ++++
Close knit local office
Good benefits

ConsNo opportunities for advancement
Division is being dissected
No career paths
Almost no staff, and little to no support
Competitive with sister divisions
Hard to work with a company that doesn't respect the work of others
Priorities shift with the wind with no real advancement in anything, just spinning the wheels

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to work with employees instead of against them, too many times navigation through the company was impeded by internal politics at Germany.

A series of unfortunate missed opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amphenol

ProsCasual Dress, Not a lot of hierarchy, Intelligent co-workers

ConsSenior Managment makes a lot of unilateral decisions. Makes promises it doesn't keep. Has trouble listening or hearing what employees can contribute. More of a closed minded vs. open minded approach to doing business.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more open to new ideas and new approaches to managing people. Company would benefit from opening up its inner circle, and having more of a give and take with its employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
