    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    TE provides decent compensation and benefits. Work life balance is good. Pockets of great innovation, depending on the location.

    Cons

    Basically an ivory tower approach, and a highly political organization. Different groups that need to cooperate have conflicting incentive goals, which ultimately lessens the company's effectiveness in gaining and holding market share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider treating employees less like commodities.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The flexible hours were great, but highly dependent upon whom your boss is. The projects are technically challenging.

    Cons

    The low compensation for the area results in financially squeezed employees competing with tech startups for housing within the SF bay area. Cost of living in the bay area is significantly higher than the national average.

     Self induced bureaucracy adds layers of effort to an already complex engineering tasks. Out of touch management oblivious to the impact of their actions and words have on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on enabling employees rather inundating them with low value tasks.

    Old raychem and AMP feuds are pointless and dissolve any sort of hope in new employees. The amount of motorola nepotism is sufficient to believe meritocracy does not exist within the company.

    Communication is a two way street. Having zero rapport with your direct reports does not lead to effective teams. I know that I will not get your support to do my job effectively, especially if it cost money to do so. If I do succeed that success will be immediately marginalized. Don't promise carrots that you can deliver when the only thing you can offer is sticks.
