    Pros

    Great people to work with- employees are great. They have great attitudes and really help each other out.

    Cons

    Management has terrible values and is very very unprofessional. They speak down on other employees when they are not around, and also do not conduct themselves in a unprofessional manner. There is no respect for individuals and their ideas. If you challenge any direction given to you, then you are on the (GET RID of LIST). During the interview they lied about my compensation, they do not show you the incentive plan until after you start, and it's impossible to make money here. They are extremely micromanaging in that SR level managers have to approve everything you give/say to the customer. there is ZERO autonomy at this company or trust in their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees with out respect. Give them the tools and training to be better leaders and also trust your employees more. It will make them work harder for you. Compensate them for the work they do and stop taking advantage of younger people out of college by hiring them at EXTREMELY low low salaries.

    Pros

    401k match is decent considering all of the cons.

    Cons

    No employee appreciation = high turnover naturally, no surprise there. No resources put into employee training of any kind, very old outdated computer programs and management techniques. Very lean operation that leaves the employees to lose. Very low employee moale.

    Advice to Management

    Stock price does not reflect a high employee morale. Get over yourself and put more resources into the most important asset in the whole corporation.

    Pros

    A few really great people to work with that seem to hold the company together.

    Cons

    When you make it 5 years and you are considered a "survivor," you know there is a problem. High employee turnover rate. Low salary with a great deal of overtime. Constant lay offs (3 rounds in 5 years). Lack of employee appreciation. No training. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Get over your pride. It's just about the numbers. Your employees are your greatest asset. Value them! Put resources into training. Learn about every aspect of the company, not just the front end. Create a realistic budget and don't be so quick to lay people off just because your sales team was a bit over optimistic.


  7. The people are nice, the work is fun but you'd have to work there for many years to really move up.

    A lot of responsibility, Great employees, Work expectation is high but can be managed without too much overtime, are able to work on a global scale and work in teams toward meeting customer goals.

    Pros

    High energy workplace Very dedicated employees Leading edge technology work

    Cons

    Rather than make a comment, I'll let the facts speak for themselves. Since 2009, Amphenol RF has lost (out of a total of roughly 120 employees) 5 Regional Sales Managers, 3 National Sales Managers (1 about every year, they are now looking to fill number 4), 2 Distribution Sales Manager, 2 Marketing Managers, 1 National Marketing Manager, 3 Customer Service Representatives, 2 Senior Quality Managers, 1 Purchasing Manager and roughly 13 manufacturing employees. Most of the manufacturing jobs were layoffs, the rest were voluntary.

    Advice to Management

    Greater focus on valuing employee contribution and improve morale.

    Pros

    Lots of intelligent people, and interesting work. Products have limitess growth potential.

    Cons

    salaries are below average. Company doesn't invest in training and supporting new ideas hours you have to work are rigid. You feel like you have to punch a clock all the time. Lots of miscommunication between managers and subordinates, poor communication between diferent divisions. Low morale and problems with attrition. Cafeteria is gross

    Advice to Management

    upgrade salaries, spend more money on improving people's skills make the work environment more attractive Allow employees to participate in more seminars, trade shows, and industry events

    Pros

    Ruthlessly efficient multi-national corporation. Incompetence is not permitted and is quickly excised. High performance work environment. Co-workers are pleasant, competent and love what they do for the most part. Sales enjoyed good management support to make higher level contacts at key customers. Management not afraid to shake things up to obtain better results. Management invests in training for Sales and Marketing staff.

    Cons

    Ruthlessly efficient multi-national corporation. Base salary OK, but bonus plan was not fully disclosed until after employment began, and it was structured so as to make any reasonable commission bonus nearly impossible. The company is set up to maximize shareholder value. People who loath fiscal quarter-to-quarter fire-drill shenanigans need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    No advice - this company is great for people who thrive in a fast-paced environment. Stock performance says it all. It's simple - if you don't like it, leave. That's what I did. No malice.
