    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time

    Pros

    Generally nice people, good work life balance if you get your head down and do your work in the day. Finishing at 1pm on Fridays.

    Cons

    Management and HR are bullies and a disgrace, the staff are treated badly (unless you are management). Constantly asked for cost savings and making staff redundant but senior managers can have new expensive cars?? Overload of work that needs to be manufactured but not allowed any new machines to do the work. Old time consuming processes. Impossible tasks set for pay reviews, or excuses made so you don't qualify for a pay rise. To much pressure put onto some people and not enough on others. Some senior management just taking the mick and getting away with it. Threats from HR and no support given, unless you are senior management, they don't care about you.

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

    Pros

    TE has a great world-wide reputation for ethics and the pay can be very good. If you are located in the headquarters, there are many opportunities for moving up; otherwise, don't expect anything. The people are generally great to work with. When laid off, the severance package was very generous and TE does take care of their employees well from that standpoint.

    Cons

    The company is extremely quick to downsize the nanosecond there is a whiff of lower earnings. There must be tremendous pressure from the top to protect the EPS for shareholders. Almost never a year goes by when there isn't a layoff which creates a huge burden for the employees. No effort is ever made to protect employees through the tough times -- you're on your end. In that sense, TE is what I would call a "ruthless" company. Once you get to middle-management, expect to start sacrificing work-life balance significantly.

    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity across all functions, businesses, and regions. Very much an open door policy across the company. If you invest in yourself and are accountable, TE will invest in you both short and long term. Tons of experience at all levels across the company. Great benefits, work life balance, and culture.

    Cons

    Large size of the company sometimes makes it hard to get things done. Large size of the company allows many sub-par employees to cruise along for years, and some people are put into mid level leadership roles that have no business being there. Can seem like box checking activity with certain things.

    Current Employee - Product Engineer 

    I have been working at TE Connectivity full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance. People are helpful. Nice environment to work.

    Cons

    The Salary you get is low compared to other companies and the yearly raise is pathetic. Micromanaging is the trend.
