    Approves of CEO

    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

    Cons

    Always the threat of layoffs or shifting business to other parts of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people and the skills they bring to TE
