    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities for advancement, great benefits, and my coworkers are awesome to work with. I love the work/life balance! My job is challenging and rewarding and I'm constantly learning something new.

    Cons

    Because we work in the technology industry, we face challenges to keep up with our competition to have the most innovative products. It's something that is both difficult but also exciting!

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate how my management team is very transparent--it's refreshing!

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time

    Pros

    I worked at this company for 28 years. Met some incredible people and was very well compensated, especially during the early years, when it was AMP incorporated.

    Cons

    When early management was phased out, I had difficulty aligning myself enthusiastically with the business philosophy of the new management.
    It seemed less open and stress levels went way up for many people.

    Advice to Management

    No company's management can be completely open about everything, that wouldn't make sense at all, and it doesn't matter how good a management team is, someone is going to complain and want to know more than they need to, but, the level of distrust, in management and the level of demoralization that I witnessed during my last few years, was something that I would have never wanted to see in a company that I was working for.
    Not sure where it started but, the rule of thumb is that it usually starts from the top down, although I'm sure there are exceptions.
    Overall, I had a great ride and I would do it again, if given the opportunity, hopefully under new management.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Parent company realises that the Oceanside plant is lacking in productivity and not making promised production delivery dates. They are in the process of making corrective action. The old guard employees resist change which ultimately affects little effective changes

    Cons

    Not enough communication between workers and management hampering productivity. It's more of a my way or the highway attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees for their opinions.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, mediocre pay, not a bad location so close to Carlsbad and the ocean. No other pros to be shared.

    Cons

    Terrible culture, toxic work environment. This particular location is like working in the wild Wild West. There is no team collaboration, everyone is in it for themselves, and no one is to be trusted. Stress levels are high due to unorganized management. They turned over most of the staff after the acquisition TE made of what was formerly deutsch, and they cannot seem to get it right still. Do yourself a favor and keep looking.
