Pros

Great technology, hands down. If you get at the "upswing" of your career you'll stand to learn a lot; however, once you're past that point it may become rather boring and repetitive. The opportunities to work on some good technology are a plus and training is paid for.

Cons

You will have to navigate the "it wasn't invented here" syndrome with co-workers who have little desire to advance their skills. Lots of intra-office talking behind backs too. Last, but not least, you'll find management who have great intentions but lack any diversity in their career portfolio making off the cuff decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Position the less motivated to advance long time employees to support based roles and allow the outside talent to come in and grow your technology to scales never imagined. Finally, allowing more work-from-home would be an overall "plus" considering the pay isn't commensurate with the time one needs to put in.

Remove all the management layers, it didn't work for a lot of other companies, it only causes a grave disconnect from upper layers to the worker bees. Finally, provide a path for people to blossom into more advanced career roles, stop outsourcing everything to Mexico.

    I worked at Teleflex

    Pros

    Easiest $100k job you'll ever have. You will be able to work about 15-20 hours a week and make $100k in your sleep. But, if you work a regular 40-50 hour week, you can expect to max out at $120k.

    Cons

    No direction from upper management, and no job satisfaction. Selling commodities was not what I wanted to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a vision, communicate this vision, and execute.

    I worked at Teleflex full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    the team work, 100% customer satisfaction, structured enviroment, 100% cross training, 100% safety, management always had an open door policy.i really hate that the Distributtion Center closed and moved to Mississippi.

    Cons

    some people would be on a probation period with temp agencies and have worked longer than the time before becoming hired permanently.
