    Pros

    Competitive benefits includes medical insurance, PTO and matching for 401(K). Good internal training with many online courses.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult to achieve during product launch. There are many businesses and the synergy among them could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company holds much potential as it transitions into new products. There are many experts in various divisions. Company would do well to find ways to better harness such expertise. It already has nice internal online training.

    Pros

    Changing environment provides many learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Employees are expected to work long hours. Senior management is focused on personal bonus and is not trusted by lower-level employees. Little value put on employee development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect employee's work/home life balance. Invest in developing employees. Foster diversity.

  7. My experience in working at Teleflex has been mostly positive. As with any large company, there are challenges at times

    I have been working at Teleflex full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I appreciate the fact that Teleflex promotes education and provides opportunities for company sponsored classes or will support their employees in their scholastic endeavors.

    Cons

    The thing I find must challenging at Teleflex is the constant change. There are also times when employees feel they are not as important as investors. And, many are continually worried about losing their jobs, as there has been an ongoing effort to relocate many functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to employees, not just the leadership teams, but those in the office and in the field working tirelessly every day. Stop eliminating positions.

    I worked at Teleflex full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They make compliant medical products with on time deliveries in the high range.
    Low MRR rating (rejected and sent back) *Note: Highest rate occurs during Mandatory overtime
    401k is average for the company of it's size

    Cons

    Mandatory Overtime
    Non-competitive wage scales
    No room for growth
    Strict attendance policy interfering in work/ life balance
    Management unethical to employees
    Temp starter
    High turnover rate
    Disciplinary actions for people with disabilities (not being able to run a machine)
    Low pay raises in merit based system
    Anti-Union (multiple employees have tried and were shortly fired)
    No action taken when suggestions are given

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If people want a union, let them have one. If people have disabilities, conform to federal laws and statues. Give opportunity for those that want it. Don't just shove them on a machine and tell them to comply. Reward people who try hard and offer incentives to people who need guidance.
