Pros

Work life balance is pretty good. There is a high degree of flexibility for those who work in different ways. Telecommuting is allowed, and one of the saving graces of the company. Good for those who know what they are expected to do.

Cons

Cubicles, lack of professionalism and inability to get rid of non-professional attitudes. SafeTEy should be a priority. Monetary compensation is lower than similar companies. Very traditional upper management style which results in sub par adaptability to markets. The environment does not suit itself to innovation, does not allow the company to be fasTEr, smarTEr, or connecTEd. Bad place for inexperienced engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The likelihood of losing high performers is dependent on compensation for their work. You can be as negative as you would like in reviews, but people need to know what they did wrong before hand. Training is too low of a priority. Unsafe people need to be removed from the organization, or be properly trained. No capital is spent to ensure that people are productive as soon as they start. Rhetoric is heavy for somewhere that doesn't build a professional culture.

    Pros

    Most of the people are very friendly and helpful. The company shows well to customers as it is clean and high tech.

    Cons

    Upper management rules by fear. No excuses. Do as I say, or else. They have stated I want someone to run through the wall if I want them to without question. Hiring of military personnel, especially with special forces background has become the norm making it unbearable for a friendly cohesive team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the military atmosphere. Trust people, even if you didn't hire them yourself. Listen to what Tom Lynch suggests is the right way to run a company, but unfortunately hitting short term numbers successfully is driving the medical division into the ground. Change the TE-Medical division management ASAP.

    Pros

    Good opporrtunities for cutting edge technology, fast paced environment, great market share for many of their products. Last several quarters have shown financial improvement and outlook looks positive for growth.

    Cons

    Recognition for job well done is sometimes lacking. It is possible to be pulled in multiple directions on a variety of projects to the point where your basic job could be neglected. There is a lack of communication regarding changes/upgrades of systems and HR seems to lack strong leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on hiring top notch talent, get rid of the "old boy" network and bring in fresher ideas from tech savvy companies like HP, Google etc.
