    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Immigration - They helped me with my Green card
    - experience - they helped me gain experience ... never got chance to do what I wanted to do
    - people - people at ground zero are really good

    Cons

    - limitation to growth - if you do your job well you will be in the position forever until it gets redundant .. they will not move you..
    - Constant ReOrgs and layoffs in IT - instability and hostile
    - management gets to be senior management but analysts remain the same ...
    - Constant complaining from business about IT irrespective of deliverables
    - old tools - they don't invest in state of the art tools .. too much I house customisation on the tools.

    Advice to Management

    Get to the ground zero and understand and help people to grow who help you grow .. Cross fit(IT transformation) is more like Crossfire ...

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, Good severance package if laid-off good place to learn engineering tools

    Cons

    Unstable environment at TE Wilsonville. Continuously loosing customers over the years. Bad management. High employee turnover. Sink or swim situation, but mostly sink if you are new into the company. No clear future for the company. Trust deficit between employees since you never know who will be laid off next.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management since I know you don't care. Advice to anyone seeking to work here. This place is good if you want to do an internship, but you cannot plan for the future if you are full time. High level of uncertainty over the Medical division's future.

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

    Pros

    Free Parking. Can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment. HR protects the company with little or no regard to the employee. Management is concerned with meeting metrics/numbers that are easily and often cheated. This place actually gave away post-its as a prize during a so called employee raffle (no joke).

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself.
