    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best asset at TE is its people. Virtually every projects requires to work in a team environment. Lot’s of talent.

    Cons

    Certain areas are overloaded which slows down the progress on projects. Too many controls and systems are not standardized accross the corporation. Many BU’s still not on SAP

    Advice to Management

    Simplify processes & tools. Too many layers of top Senior Management and not enough 1st & 2nd level managers.

    Pros

    Paid for BA degree. Employee focused company while owned by AMP.

    Cons

    AMP sold out to Tyco. No longer interested in employee growth and experience.

    Advice to Management

    You are top heavy...no need for MORE corporate level jobs when people actually running the business are working longer than 40 (more like 50) hour weeks! Stop hemorrhaging of jobs overseas. Consider lives you are ruining to profit top echelon...working long hours and laying off experienced employees.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time

    Pros

    Good company benefits, vacations, 401K, etc. Medical has taken a hit over the last few years.
    People for the most part there are great and have made the tough times bearable. Last ~2 years have brought stability and layoffs/rifs have all but disappeared. Bonus has been improving and the gears seem to be churning in sync towards more positive results.
    If you're looking for a good challenge, hard work and can live with some imperfection, TE is a good place.

    Cons

    Overall headcount is still low. There is more work than the current employee count can support. Important projects and tasks are staffed, but so many more side projects and supporting systems need improvement and have no priority. Ops needs a lot of help and headcount.
    There are still a handful of sour apples left operating by the mindset that red tape and slowing things down is the way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Ops management is pushing metrics and cost savings by numbers only. Lack of true understanding of Ops challenges is preventing the improvements needed to drive the right solutions. Ops desperately needs better systems and more experienced hands on leaders.
