    Pros

    Great Benefits, bonuses, easy work, most of the people are great

    Cons

    favoritism, big turnover of workers. Temps work for a year or more and don't even get hired. unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    treat your people like they are more than just a number. when it was AMP people loved to work there and there was hardly any turnover.. now its almost ever day. People can't wait to leave. HIRE your temps.. don't make them work for a year or more and then not even give them a chance.. that is just rude and unprofessional.

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at TE Connectivity full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      For the most part, the employees adhere to the core values as much as they can, and the company does want to make a difference in the world for the better.

      Cons

      They outsource too much of the IT work. This causes constant turnover every year or two when contracts are up for negotiation. Projects are slowed down by miscommunication and knowledge gaps. They say they're agile, but it's impossible to be truly agile when you lose 2-3 months every other year because all your knowledge got swapped out for a different group of people.

      Advice to Management

      1. More people for fewer dollars that you have to train every couple of years is more expensive than hiring a few expensive onshore resources and retaining that talent long term. Your accounting isn't showing you the true cost of outsourcing work to companies on the other side of the world. 2. For a company that prides itself in acceptance, inclusion, and diversity, they haven't done a great job training managers how...

      I worked at TE Connectivity full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Departmental structure allowed a small company feel, while having the backing of a multi-billion dollar company.

      Cons

      The quality metrics applied to rate departments, projects, and individuals are made up from a company politics perspective instead of output and results.

      Advice to Management

      TE has so much going for it. The quality metrics need to be put in check, and viewed in perspective of logic. Defining KPIs needs more of a thoughtful approach. Defining irrelevant KPIs because they are easy to quantify is a common cop-out among the low level managers.

      Pros

      Good 401k match (you put in 1%, they put in 5%), lots of opportunities to network, availability to move around, global, pay is higher than average for those under 5-10 years

      Cons

      Can be very demanding in plant environment, some management are leaders, but most in plants are bosses (demand unrealistic goals), US locations are not exciting

      Advice to Management

      Be a leader, not a boss. Grow with the employees.
