    Pros

    Teleflex is a 70+year old start-up company. A pure-play medical device manufacture for about 5 years now, current senior management team has its act together. High integrity company. Under current management team stock value has increased dramatically.

    Cons

    Still seeking to align programs with its culture. Lean staffing environment creates challenging performance management issues.

    Advice to Management

    Should take a careful look at staffing to workload with the help of an external consultant.

    I have been working at Teleflex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredibly nice employees that are very intelligent and action-oriented. Managers are usually very down to earth. Decent pay. Benefits are on par with comparable Medical Device companies.

    Cons

    Almost no promotion scope. HR is non-existent. Academic assistance is shabby. R&D does not engage in new product development, it is mostly sustaining Engineering. Teleflex expects its R&D Engineers to go beyond what is required of their position. This is great if you are looking to learn, but it can seem like being thrown in to an open fire.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people. Invest more in R&D

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Teleflex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working in IT. While the company is striving to unite it's businesses and departments through common Core Values, the IT department, commits at a whole other level. There are plenty of opportunities to have fun at work or at an IT social.

    Cons

    Having grown so much through acquisition, rationalizing systems through such a large and geographically diverse organization is daunting. The CEO, Benson Smith, has done wonders for the stock, but is stuck in the dark ages on such topics as remote working, realistic perspective of diversity in leadership, and transparency with the average coworker.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit anonymous advice from the lower rungs and date to trust it and respond appropriately. Trust from the highest level is our weakest Core Value.

    I worked at Teleflex full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Really great employees to work with.

    Cons

    More work is being outsourced (both manufacturing and development) which translates domestic plant closings and leaving less to do for current technical staff at remaining facility's.

    Advice to Management

    Organic growth is critical to every company's sustainability.

    Pros

    Great entrepreneurial spirit. Lots of growth

    Cons

    very sales focused. Need to also care about quality and R&D

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a more holistic and global approach to talent sharing, they buy their talent, for a premium, so there is no historical culture to anchor the company moral compass,

    Continue to use relationships and experience to grow within the company and meet or exceed quota.
