    I have been working at Amphenol full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging fast pace environment. Never a dull moment always something different to take on. Work with a mix of passionate individuals.

    Cons

    Employee incentives lacking throughout. A you are lucky to have a job mantra is common. Lead by example or follow through an ongoing challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Business is more than a month to month activity. Big picture future planning needs more action.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amphenol (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Endless travel opportunities and advancement. Also very good with personal issues.

    Cons

    bonus structure is not great, they can change any bonus structure as they see fit. High pressure sales, not good at strategy planning or execution. Pay the employees at least 20 to 30% below market value and they do not realize it or they do not care. They have high turn over due to the fact that they have poor training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what the market suggests and try to not just recruit from universities in order to get a lower salary rate.

    Pros

    The pay is one of the best around.

    Cons

    Constantly 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 Management

    If 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 Management

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Senior 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 Management

    Need 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.
