    I worked at Teleflex as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn new things everyday, the starting payrate is pretty good for no experience, the co workers are friendly & the company overall is generous.

    Cons

    There is alot of favoritism which means if you work hard & the management have a favorite you will most likely not get promoted. The benefits given sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote accorrding to work ethics & attendance, not just soley because you like the person.

    Pros

    There is nothing positive to say about this company. The profits may be positive, however not much else is.

    Cons

    This company has no regard for human life, as they destroy people along the way. The moral throughout the company is the worst I have experienced. Most have been there for 20+ years and feel trapped until retirement. The CEO is not a people person at all, the CFO is by far the worst and a law suite waiting to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quite.

    Pros

    The company allows employees to work from home and work remotely which helps work and life balance.

    Cons

    Employees does not have support from managers to learn and develop. There is also little opportunity to grow. There is very little recognition from management or peers for work achievements. The company makes little efforts to retain its talents. Also management change happens frequently because of constant restructuring and lay-offs at some sites.

    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 for more than a year

    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.
