I worked at TE Connectivity as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice people to work with. Great banter with the lads. All of the staff really knew their stuff, were very enthusiastic and always approachable if you needed a hand with something. The work was hands-on (best way to learn) with plenty of variety and I reckon I learned more during my 8 months in Tyco than all my years in college.

Cons

There was no overtime pay (I was employed there through a third party so I don't know how the pay system works within the company)

Advice to Management

Need to invest in more test equipment. Jobs would be finished quicker due to less waiting around for availability.

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

    Pros

    Exciting & fascinating industry to be a part of. Pay, bonus opportunity & benefits are among the best I have experienced in my cereer. There is a good employee feedback system in place, and management seems to value those opinions to try to make changes. Management is driving positive changes with a company-wide LEAN program with a clear plan through 2015. The day to day fellow working associates are good people who are sincere in their efforts to provide good product. The culture at the plants are good overall.

    Cons

    Like most American companies, TE tries to do more with (a lot) less people - to a fault. Work-life balance is encouraged, but many production employees are pushed to a expected robotic existence and plant supply chain employees feel they have no choice but to work long hours in order to try to keep up with their workload. The LEAN program put in place, is being allowed to increasingly grow almost uncontrolled like a weed to demand most of everyone's time rather then allow us to focus on the plant needs. Resource requests have consistently been denied all the way up the chain. This is a product of out-sourcing to other countries, thus making us have to try & keep competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from the auto industry....Review & lean out a lot of the unnecessary waste in the growing LEAN system of what is not really important for the plants to be successful - you're choking us with data requirements. Worry a bit more about the employees and having enough resources to do the work right, rather then pushing the stock price up. Doing so will increase productivity, allow cost savings to be realized on time and will take care of the stock price more rapidly then forcing plants into cost-cutting & and reductions in force.
