I worked at TE Connectivity full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Suffice it to say, TE Connectivity went from a place that I could see myself retiring from to a place that I couldn't wait to escape in just a matter of a few years. The benefits are solid, the pay is good as well, but the corporate environment and the endless amounts of politics that come with it were too much to bear. Senior management does a great job of pushing ridiculous metrics onto organizations, then re-writing those metrics.

Cons

If you've a favorite of your manager, you'll go a long ways. If not, you can go from a great team player to being on the bubble in a matter of months. It's just plain silly. Just silly. The organization as a whole is completely bent on short term within the quarter goals. It's rather disheartening.

Advice to Management

My advice to management is to really take into account what the people doing the work actually have to say, not just the top plant managers.

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

    Pros

    TE is a company that I am proud to say I am a part of, people and performance focused with an eye on innovation. Tom and executive staff are providing the right environment to attract customers, investors and new talent!

    Cons

    Challenges are working through some of old cultural management style, where things were done a certain way in the past and these people not seeing the light of change.

    Advice to Management

    More 1:1's with the troops to understand the pulse of organization, lunch and learns would be great for Tom and his staff.

    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary and healthcare. People working in Engineering and on the floor are decent hardworking people who care about the company and their fellow workers.

    Cons

    Do not care about employees, disposable, use until they wear out. Never satisfied with output, put in long days everyday for product being moved overseas. Then when they are moved, they show you the door. Morale is lowest seen in 30 some years! Management does not get it, people losing livelihood to Mexico, India, and China and Management does not understand why they are upset and morale is so low.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with some form of respect and understanding. A lot of people worked their lives for AMP/TE, now they are just going through the motions as they know their jobs are going out the door.
