    I worked at Amphenol Borisch Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great work environment. Air conditioned, clean and well lit. Nice schedule working ever other Friday. Steady pace with out being harassed.

    Cons

    The company was bought out by Amphenol that did not seem to care as much about the employees. They had many layoffs after being bought out. Not the same company anymore

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to take care of the thing that makes a company great. The employees. They are what make the biggest difference on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Mostly only first shift; fun employee outings; good coworkers.

    Cons

    Frequent unexpected layoffs followed by weeks of mandatory over time. Frequent organizational management changes makes it hard to have a working relationship with management.

    I worked at Amphenol Borisch Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, always more tasks than you have time in the day to complete. Family like environment with phenomenal people who genuinely care (with the exception of certain "leaders")

    Cons

    55-60 hours a week still isn't enough to complete all tasks. Expected to come in on "off Friday's" even though they'll entice you with this "benefit"

    Advice to Management

    Stop accounting for business until you actually receive a PO. Way to much time is wasted back tracking because you're constantly counting your chickens before the eggs hatch.

    I worked at Amphenol Borisch Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Every other Friday off (which will disappear)
    Quality manager (female) is the exceptional

    Cons

    Too many to note:
    - Extremely poor management, run like a dictatorship
    - Insurance is now very poor
    - Quarterly bonus is a complete lie, you will never see a payout
    - Terrible and inexperienced people running the company
    - Very non-compliant to government contracts and accounting principles
    - Layoffs are constant, unstable
    - Numerous people have walked off of the job

    Advice to Management

    Close the place down before the IRS or the US Government does! Amphenol Corporate should do itself a favor by closing the doors!

    I have been working at Amphenol Borisch Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Every other Friday off but should be respected every other week if it's a benefit

    Cons

    You only get 3 sick days. Cannot leave Camus for lunch without clocking out. Vacation is well below industry standards

    Advice to Management

    Do not try to make cut back in benefits seem as if you are doing employees a favor.

    I have been working at Amphenol Borisch Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Relatively frequent days off, but not as many as officially promised (every other Friday).

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs. Never sure when one's job will come to an end. Layoffs chronic, don't work there if you want relatively secure, continuous employment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over-promise every other Friday off. Also, the idea of working like crazy at end of every month to "make monthly numbers" is not rational. If flows are improved through well-thought-out system improvements, this would make for optimal flow.

    Pros

    Good pay. Best employees around.

    Cons

    Out sourcing to Mexico. Diminishing benifits. Under staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure to allow supervisors, engineering and quality to be on the production floor. To much focus on tracking fiaiures and not enough people preventing failures. Most of your problems with quality are on the floor, not in the front office.

    Pros

    People, vacation time, every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Employees are always rushing to keep their head above water. Work load high. Lay offs are a regular occurrence.

    Advice to Management

    Unrealistic expectations are never met. Why are they still committing to them? It only sets every person up for failure.

    I worked at Amphenol Borisch Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Great people to work with.
    -Amazing insurance.
    -Every other Friday off.
    -Quarterly bonuses (although I believe this has changed some).

    Cons

    -Low to average wages.
    -Okay 401(k) plan. 25% up to 10% employer match.
    -People get promoted based off who they know, not based on abilities/experience/education.
    -Lots and lots of layoffs. Very unstable company. Moved much of the production work to Nogales, Mexico.

    Advice to Management

    Management really needs to improve the culture of this company. Based on my experience, people were promoted based off who they knew. I don't agree with this at all. A person really needs the experience/education for any position. There were several instances where I felt that management had hired the wrong person for the position. People were terminated from peer reviews, which is ridiculous. Cannot base a termination solely from a peer review.
