    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time

    Pros

    Variety of challenging assignments; generally supportive work environment; peers are generally collaborative and open; Competitive salary and benefits; Approachable upper management.

    Cons

    Very "siloed" with minimal cooperation between functional departments and business units; constant management re-shuffles and reorganizations with corresponding layoffs; Work life balance difficult to maintain.

    Advice to Management

    Constant reorganizations inhibiting ability of staff to get their work done. When upper management gets re-shuffled, need to try to limit the impact on the lower levels.

    I worked at TE Connectivity

    Pros

    Most people I worked with at Corporate level were very knowledgeable, good at their jobs and very dedicated. Leading the industry in innovative products.

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance. No regard for change management. Every year there is some type major reorganization, consolidation, etc. making for a very unstable work environment. Not people focused at all even though the company promotes that it is.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee engagement and overall moral. I don't think your surveys are accurate or working as is advertised. (Tom Lynch)

    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Pay, Benefits, and Close to the I5 Freeway

    Cons

    Lack of resources, people often quit for new opportunities, upper management has no clue, and it's an ongoing cycle where new middle management comes onboard to continue squeezing blood, sweat, and tears out the work-a-bees

    Advice to Management

    Consider trying new management approaches

    Pros

    Teams have the trust of their peer team members and excel in creative ways to find quick and solid solutions to issues. Team focus is on solutions that benefit customers and the bottom line.

    Cons

    Teams are continually questioned on motives and decisions which then undermines the teams' abilities to be effective implement the best solutions in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through in trusting your teams to do what is in the best interests of your customers and your company - you pay them to make good decisions, so reap the benefit of their knowledge and creative capabilities.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at TE Connectivity

    Pros

    Some good functional managers, some very sharp workers.

    Cons

    Sr. Management is horrible beyond words. In 2011 about 50 people quit, and another 50+ were laid off. I worked there when a respected and competent Project Manager left a Sr. Manager's office after a two hour "coaching" session in tears, and watched her sob in her cube for the rest of the day. He still works there. She quit. Check your Linkedin network before leaving a job to go to TE Wilsonville.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out some "SMART" goals on making TE a Great Place To Work. Then do those things.

    I have been working at TE Connectivity

    Pros

    Great co-workers; clean cubicles, great products.

    Cons

    Lousy mid-level management; development/growth ceiling is very low.

    Advice to Management

    You're not as smart as you think you are, and your employees know quite a bit more than you might imagine, if you'd seek their input.

    Pros

    They usually send a paycheck when they are supposed to.

    Cons

    Senior management has no vision beyond the financials week over week.

    Advice to Management

    Get a vision, create a strategy to achieve the vision and then stick with it even if they numbers aren't as good as you expected for a few weeks...

    I have been working at TE Connectivity

    Pros

    Very good benefits package; stable product base - seems poised for growth in emerging technologies.

    Cons

    Seems stuck in a 1950's siloed manufacturing model - very little cross-departmental work. Older working population can struggle with new technology in workplace (SAP, Business Intelligence). Quite often I see employees working harder than smarter. US employee base knows most opportunities are going overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your middle-management. Can they execure your strategic plan? Are the right processes, procedures and policies in place to realize your value statements and 5 year plan?
