    I worked at Teleflex as a contractor (more than an 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.

    I worked at Teleflex full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will get training and to go to a conference once a year and there is a chance for over seas travel, maybe. In Raleigh and Wayne, there are new office buildings. They hire younger employees. It is a company that produces lifesaving products.

    Cons

    The working environment is very much a cube farm with low walls and no privacy. The atmosphere is very cliquish and if you are a member of the clique you might enjoy it. There is a ridiculous amount of documentation and produced just to be able to say they have it and is never referenced again. Management makes up their minds and are not pleased to be bothered with counterpoints and details. Please don't be fooled about such phrases as "Work-Life Balance" and "We are committed to family". This only refers to the Teleflex family and not yours. Work life balance is a joke. Last, the pay for position is well below market value.

    Pros

    Helping people by producing good quality medical products. Flexible working patterns.

    Cons

    Senior management walk all over employees, will do anything to save costs. Wouldn't surprise me if all jobs moved overseas to save company money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to employees, tell them how they are performing, work together to make production gains, don't send all our jobs to Mexico so that shareholders can make even more money, our hard work built the company.

    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.
