    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.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone in TE should be treated the same, its the little people that you don't bother to look after that do the hard work to get things out on time. Look into your senior management they are failing but you cover things up. You are losing all the good people with the knowledge, you can't keep knife and forking things together something will give soon enough.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pros: CEO. 401k plan. Well-diversified amongst industries.

    Cons

    Cons: In several divisions, doesn't actually "walk the talk" when it comes to several key aspects of what it espouses (job rotation, managers respecting their employees, product and service quality for customers, etc.). Very little work/life balance for senior managers and above. Work 24/7 expectations.

    Advice to Management

    You have a few leaders who should be admonished for the way they treat people. Although this gets reported to HR, some within the HR group clearly defend the company first rather than its people.

    I worked at TE Connectivity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Pay is great - Team members are typically great people - Opportunity to learn about different industries, move to different functions if you are one of the fortunate high performers

    Cons

    - Known to lay employees off when things get rough, then be short staffed when the market improves - Lack of security in all roles due to constant restructuring - Terrible Talent Management system where only high performers are considered for promotions/lateral moves - Medical deductibles are very high, most people have a hard time affording costs - Culture of Upper level management needs to be adjusted. If one... person doesn't like you, you might as well find a new job - Terrible work life balance, prepared to be on call 100% of the time
