    Pros

    best paying job in the area

    Cons

    it is a union job so a con would be if you were just hired or low on senority list then you get laid off first

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most upper management used to be average everyday workers like the rest of us and they need to remember what it was like to be an average worker and not let a management job go to their heads

    It pays well but is very sad that the corporation is out of touch with the working people on the floor.

    I have been working at Amphenol

    Pros

    The pay is very good , benefits are ok , most of the people there want to do a good job and want to make a good product.

    Cons

    The management is out of touch , the new managers have no clue how to run the factory and i fear in the long run we will see the rest of our jobs go overseas. The older managers are afraid to stand up to management for fear of losing their jobs ! a very sad situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the people that know how to make good parts , take away the fear factor in management they do know what they are doing.

    I have been working at Amphenol

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Not a bad place, Typical ethnocentric German company

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Canton, MI
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Canton, MI

    I worked at Amphenol

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Amphenol

    Pros

    Balance of work and life is possible depending on what position you are at. The people and culture is very nice and laid back. Dress code is business causal.

    Cons

    Managment is under heavy stress due to the lack of staffing and the large amount of growth within the company. People tend to get spread way to0 thin. Heavy work load at the top due to size of managment force. Salaries can vary depending on location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look for high level canidates for positions, look to expand staffing.
