    "Sr. Global Trade Compliance Manager"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Menlo Park, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at TE Connectivity (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are always new projects to kick-off every year.
    The majority of the employees are very friendly and easy to work with.
    They give you the tools you need to be sucessful

    Cons

    You are expected to conference call into meetings in different global time zones several times a week.
    The number of projects assigned person often is in direct conflict with senior managements desire to limit the number of goals an employee has assigned per year. This lead to frustration because you can't complete all of your goals so the end result you performance review suffers. I.e. you salary increase & bonus is impacted.

    Advice to Management

    Executive management needs to walk the walk... Not just talk. Senior management says to do one thing but the reality is too much work is assigned to complete every task assigned to individuals. Cut back on the number of goals assigned and what individual performance improve dramatically.
