    Pros

    Good pay & benefits; innovation is highly valued

    Despite inclusion efforts, not really all that friendly for women. Some business units like Industrial are playing lip service to inclusion efforts. Women get hired but they don’t stay.

    Great leadership team. There is a lot of opportunity for growth since it is such a large company.

    Pros

    TE is a company that I am proud to say I am a part of, people and performance focused with an eye on innovation. Tom and executive staff are providing the right environment to attract customers, investors and new talent!

    Cons

    Challenges are working through some of old cultural management style, where things were done a certain way in the past and these people not seeing the light of change.

    Advice to Management

    More 1:1's with the troops to understand the pulse of organization, lunch and learns would be great for Tom and his staff.

    Size and diversified product base make it a fairly stable company. Lots of opportunities for a person willing to put in the effort.

    I have been working at TE Connectivity

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice people who, for the most part, like to help rather than hinder. Most people are very competent at their jobs and smart, but there are notable exceptions. The work life balance is good.

    Cons

    HR staff is adversarial and often incompetent. Their attitude is to say "no" first. They offer employees the very minimum to keep them from leaving too soon. They are constantly pruning benefits.
