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

    Pros

    -Manager is invested in your growth
    -Collaboration is encouraged

    Cons

    -Nothing revolutionary
    -It was challenging because it was going through an acquisition
    -Very process oriented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Mentorship program would be a great addition to the process
    - Continure the leadership series where different managers spoke to the interns and that was beneficial

    Pros

    Large company, good Benefits, mostly good people

    Cons

    We were a acquired by TE snf then slowly dismantled. Could have been a good place to work if they would have kept all of the talent where it was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer at the value of the employees and a little less at the bottom line.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable Benefits, Advancement opportunities, Customer focus

    Cons

    As with many companies the relentless drive to please the market / share holders drives short term decisions that are not always the best for the business long term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue effort toward customer and employee focus that drives results vs. driving results at the cost of customer and employee satisfaction

    Pros

    Results driven and compensation is based on performance. Global company with diverse opportunities.

    Very business unit central with little personnel moves between business units until upper management levels

    Your people have more to contribute to the company than they feel they can. Especially at the engineering and lower levels of management.

    Current Employee - SAP Systems Analyst in Harrisburg, PA

    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time

    Pros

    Global company, large global IT staff, plenty of projects, systems, and architectures to keep you busy. For the most part, employees are great to work with. Pay is decent but you never get paid your market value if you stick around too long.

    Cons

    Work demands can be excessive - both with the amount of work your expected to complete and the frequency of work travel. The office work environment is very poor. Very old cubes and interior, still using 10mbit internet cables. The overall culture of IT is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really should redesign the office space and interior.

    benefits, compensation, wonderful co-workers, nice work environment. flexible scheduling, global exposure

    Too many managers, not enough people to do the work. You can be in the same position for years with no chance of promotion - yet rated very high on reviews

    Hire more people who are doing the work and less people reporting statuses of those who do work
