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

    Pros

    Good infrastructure with excellent employees.

    Cons

    Leadership stopped listening to their core management and technical resources; following the latest industry management practices, technologies, and trends is great but only work successfully and long term when integrated to core values and knowledge already established to make a great company.
    No good IT Leadership tracks for technical expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start leading and train those you are leading to follow with candor and respect. Listen to those who have company's best interests and resources in mind while pursuing the newest shiny, red wagon.

    Pros

    Talented but aging staff. Good product groups.

    Cons

    Trying to expand to quickly via acquisitions and never ending reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change company philosophy from top down; company is aging; prime development location (Harrisburg, PA) is not attractive to new hires.

    I worked at TE Connectivity as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great environment, great engineers. People are very friendly. There is no micromanagement, you do what what you're supposed to do and show your work before deadlines.

    Cons

    Most of the people at TE have other projects, so it is a very multitasking environment where if you need something from someone it may take a while before they get back to you. I could almost say that they are understaffed too, they need more engineers to help quickening the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was there only for a few months, so I do not have much to comment here.

    I have been working at TE Connectivity as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Having the opportunity to work in an environment to learn and having ability to apply for jobs. Being able have experience though recruiters.

    Cons

    Some people seam to be not that friendly when you are respectful to them as if they walk around in a hateful attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the employee's having a better attitude (example) Question How are you doing ? or Good morning just a simple gesture of hello.

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

    Pros

    People below management level are fantastic

    Cons

    leadership is brutal. no recognition for a job well done. looking for opportunities to get rid of older workers. Start looking for another job while you can. You can work a million hours and it doesn't matter.And you will need to since it is common to be pulled in on a vareity of projects to the point that your main job is neglected. That will need to be done on your own time since not getting it done is not tolerated. HR is poor and policies are vague. Basic information is not available and open for managements interpretation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Most Employees are very helpful, they don't micromanage

    Cons

    Upper management is completely disconnected, unavailable, uninterested and removed from the day to day business, the culture is very stagnant - no one seems happy there, employees that have been there for a long time talk only about getting out... yikes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do annual "confidential" employee surveys, and take action on the areas that need improvement; change the company culture; create a stimulating environment and greater opportunities for professional development, take an interest the work employees are doing, acknowledge everyone's efforts, most people I talked with at TE feel very devalued, to them it's just a job. It's unfortunate that TE doesn't see the value in improving company morale...
