Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 8, 2016
Management knows more than anyone, even though they've never ran any of the machines in the building. 100% favoritism for people over work ethic. Too many lay-offs. Mandatory OT is given without a warning, have to work holidays with a few days notice. Too much paperwork, 1 strike you're out. So never ran bad production.
a decent company going through some challenging times
IT Analyst/ AV Specialist (Current Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – June 6, 2016
Senior IT management does not display much respect for operational IT. High stress environment as there is an increasingly smaller pool of talent attempting to cover projects and support responsibilities.
Temporary Accountant (Former Employee) – Hemet, CA – June 1, 2016
Upper Management is too busy with vanity metric meetings to be bothered to let the employees know what is expected of them, or give them any direction or training. they need to quit having so many useless meetings and concentrate more on the direction and growth of the people who actually do the work.
Design/Drafter (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – May 28, 2016
Enjoyed working with engineering staff to create or re-create AutoCad files. The freedom of the flex time was great. Sometimes it was over whelming to meet the demands of 12+ engineers. Would have liked to worked another 5-6 years.
TE Connectivity is a great place to work at. If you show that you are capable, you can advance there. You get to learn a lot about machines and how they operate if you really pay close attention. The work environment is wonderful. We are all like one family. If you do your job, nobody would bother you. The only problem is that business is not doing good right now.
Core Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Rock Hill, SC – May 24, 2016
TE is an enjoyable place to work. Their commitment to fair treatment, employee advancement, and engagement is world class. Continuous improvement, safety, and quality have become engrained into the culture and is a way of life.
Opportunites but all the drawbacks of a big company
Analyst (Current Employee) – Middletown, PA – May 21, 2016
There is opportunity to advance your career here, but the politics are real. Good pay but you are expected to perform. Poor training. While the culture encourages self-sufficiency it really makes it feel everyone is out for themselves.
Industrial Engineer I/Engineering Tech II (Current Employee) – Santa Teresa, NM – May 13, 2016
The job gave me great experience working under a Manager. The site under TE took advantage of temporaries, which included myself, by never making us full time employees in their company. Not until Commscope bought the site that we were then able to become full time employees. Being a temp for three years with no vacations or benefits was a big draw back.
manager at the time was very understanding of projects and situation
no benefits, no vacations, long hours, genral Culture
Die Mechanic (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – May 4, 2016
A typical day was productive. I learned a lot about blueprints and stamping presses. The management and co-workers we're fair. The hardest part was getting along with everyone. The most enjoyable was knowing my family was provided for.
Over all it was a good place to work, but there is a high turn over and several RIF's over my 8 years there. During the time I was there two new plants in Mexico were build and opened, this caused jobs in the US to be relocated.
Order Packer (Former Employee) – Santa Teresa, NM – April 27, 2016
i learn a lot of things but the don't give you a chance to grow in the company and they have a lot of favoritism, they have to many overtim and you dont have time t be with your family because sometimes we used to work from monday thru fsunday with no days off
Production Operator II (Current Employee) – Manheim, PA – April 8, 2016
A typical day at work involves sitting in one spot all day performing the same mind-numbing procedure every day. Communication between management and employees is seriously lacking. There are rewards for meeting production goals like money, food, and fun events.
Decent benefits and rewards
lacking support and advancement opportunities if you're not in the "inner circle"
