    Pros

    Financially stable company with a global footprint. A very large organization with many employees who have been there for long periods. Good people to work with and decent management. The cons are pretty minor compared to the upside. I only left for a significant pay increase at another company.

    Cons

    The scale of the company leads to some levels of inefficiency and bureaucracy. The longevity of the company can cause some resistance to change.

    One note is that the company had an ownership change shortly before I left so there may have been significant changes since my time.

    I have been working at Molex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Facilities are clean and look good from the outside. Employees (all the way up through senior management) are friendly.

    Cons

    Molex recognizes the future of being a connector business is commoditization and are attempting to create higher value electronics and software solutions. Results are....less than stellar. Lots of work (..as in years...) needs to be done before Molex can shed its reputation as a connector company and in the meantime the business will continue to struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and look at a leadership team who has invested decades into efficiently putting plastic on pins. Do you really believe they are capable of leading an electronics and software business? Can you validate your opinion with market results? If the answer is no... then it might be worthwhile bringing in some external expertise at the senior management level to define a coherent long term market strategy, not just at the engineering level.

    I worked at Molex full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As always, the people are the best reasons to stay. The benefits are good and the facility is really nice.

    Cons

    The pay could be better. There is a culture which is interesting in that most people think once you have been there for awhile, there are no opportunities outside of Molex.

    Pros

    Very well guided by the MBM principles, compensation based on contribution(pay scale)

    Cons

    The principle of MBM and other Koch elated principles only work if the people in the work environment follow it.

    Advice to Management

    The principle of MBM has a loophole in its feedback system where there is opportunity for influence via politics and manipulation.
