    Healthy-Friendly Enviroment

    Analog/Mixed Signal Design Intern (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsOnly 10 people works there, and it is like working in home, with family. Despite for the number of people, there is a total facility including lab and desktop, lunch-room. I always prefer to work in peace, with joy and interest, not on some depression based. TE Connectivity provide me those facilities.

    ConsThere are no cons I am seeing as of TE connectivity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease provide high speed computers. They are really very slow!

    Typical Big Company

    Principal Engineer (Former Employee)
    Lowell, MA

    ProsThe majority of people are good at what they do. It was possible to have a reasonable work / life balance and there were interesting things to work on.

    ConsPay and benefits were just OK, but sliding the wrong way. Pay freezes were common and benefits were decreasing rather than increasing. Senior management was out of touch with the work force most of us "rank and file" never saw or heard from them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage with the work force in a meaningful way. Make sure to share the rewards with the employees when business goes well.

    A lot of planning with slow actions.

    Calibrations & Quality Auditor (Current Employee)
    Tullahoma, TN

    ProsThe management layers have relaxed worked schedules compared to the manufacturing personnel. Casual attire and most of the people were eager to improve work methods.

    ConsGetting through the the numerous committee meetings to make plans to get things done. Every change had a committee assigned and was thoroughly dissected before anything happened.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey'd do better to define job duties and expectations better than they do. Some lower level management there have been there so long they get away with doing very little.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hopefully you are friends with higher ups or your screwed.

    Stamping Operator (Current Employee)
    Jonestown, PA

    ProsJobs are not physically demanding.

    Conswhere do I start... Well hopefully you are best friends with higher ups.. it's pretty much the only way you will advance. Not to mention having to do work above your pay grade for years upon years.. constantly being forced on mandatory overtime. Sure you have vacation time but when your stuck having to work 32+ overtime hours a month then you can't really use your time and meet your ot quota.. HR is only there to support the people on a salary while almost all hourly wage workers get walked on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHow about you come work every weekend for 9+ months and see how you feel.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsSilo approach exists between divisions, which can create major setbacks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlign different groups which interact with goals that are not conflicting
