    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Co-workers are great and the small business feel is really nice. - Benefits aside from PTO are good

    Cons

    - No official way of logging hours worked for salaried employees (makes you feel like you could easily be exploited) - Because of there being no official hour tracking system the time off/vacation is all on the honor system and your manager can turn your request down at any point even if you are trying to use personal days for important reasons. - The PTO does not roll over and your boss can decline your wish to use them so even if you start with a reasonable amount it doesn't mean you can use it. - The culture is a work first and do anything else later view. NOT at all a good work life balance (makes you nervous to go home) - The upper management refuses to put money into a good system that would promote efficiency and instead would rather stick to paper and overwork its employees.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Keep quiet and watch, there is much to learn. Severance pay is great, small price to pay to keep all the targeted people quiet.

    Cons

    Do not let unimportant inconveniences like family, sickness or hobbies get in the way of your daily work routine. At plant level, you will be publicly intimidated and threatened. Get in line or get in the unemployment line.

    Advice to Management

    Pray Karma really is just an ideology of the foolish.

    Pros

    TE provides a lot of opportunities for personal development. It is a team oriented organization. There is a lot of room to grow professionally.

    Cons

    TE expects financial reimbursement immediately. They size their organization to the economy. They play catch up and are behind due to layoffs during weak times.

    Advice to Management

    Look to where you can be and absorb the short term difficulties to gain the long term effects. Work with your employees.

    Look at what your employees DO and not what their job title is Fire poor performers, cherish top performers Hire competent managers
