Current Employee - Product Manager in Oceanside, CA
Current Employee - Product Manager in Oceanside, CA

I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

$15B dollar company with diversified products and technologies, extensive reach into a variety of markets ranging from automotive to military. Career opportunities abound as well as locations to work.

Cons

Big company can also mean being "reduced" if deemed necessary. HR is slow to respond to applications and has no followup mechanism acknowledging receipt of interest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create incentive programs for EVERY employee to succeed. Make sure that people feel valued as contributors to TE's success, by offering bonuses for going above and beyond. Finally, make sure that people are treated with care, not as a number.

    Pros

    Lots of good people to work with

    Cons

    E-Team is trying to shift as many jobs to low cost countries as possible without regard to the customer or products. I have had several heated discussions to prove that the implied savings is not there when you move to either china or mexico.
    TE has been transfering jobs and production to china at an alarming rate but still have a tremendous problem with quality control and maintaining the equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your current personnel and their skill set- You can not just teach somebody in a few days what it took decades to learn.

    Pros

    Hope is that TE can do no worse than what current Deutsch management has done with Oceanside. Hard to say what TE is really like since management withholds all information and participation with TE for regular employees.

    Cons

    Two words: people issues. Deutsch has long suffered due to poor morale and low pay across the board. There are even supervisors and managers who work multiple jobs to make ends meet. Failure to attract and retain good employees and high turnover even in recent years. Future is bleak when good young talent come and leave once they get better job offers. Only those who can't find jobs elsewhere are left running the place.
    Most of the management are very underqualified and don't show any traits of being a leader. Current management is living off the reputation and legacy of the old Deutsch company. Management just does enough to get by with their new TE masters and are waiting to hit retirement age. This gives no opportunity for anybody to move up at Oceanside. All these people issues lead to zero motivation, poor product quality, angry customers, no new products, and a poisonous work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For TE mgmt: There is room for growth but opportunities are hampered by the crippling people issues at Deutsch. Send your brightest leadership to run Deutsch to straighten things out or send somebody to see beyond the Deutsch management shell game.
