    I worked at Molex full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you are a young design engineer or product manager. A lot of cutting edge designs and development.

    Cons

    Feels like the company lacks direction in US. Much of the operations are now at their off-shore plants. The work remaining in US is only to debug, before shipping off-shore. Many global initiatives have been started, only to be stuck in development in corporate so some of those people can justify their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what to do with US manufacturing. Off-shore plants manage to the metrics making it very frustrating for people in operations in the US.

    Pros

    Global / Opportunities / Travel / 401K / Onsite staffed cafe & fitness center as a benefit

    Reward high performers better than current and give some incentives like high potentials - they're pivotal to the companies growth and success

    I worked at Molex (More than a year)

    Pros

    All the over time you can want in the lab, nice company functions

    Cons

    Very weak, or uncaring management. Engineers with no leadership abilities; bullying contractors

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair. When you let your engineers berate employees in front of everyone and do nothing, it invalidates your reason for being on the payroll.
