Very proactive company who rewards effort very well. I really enjoyed the opportunity Tyco provided, it was a tough job, but also very rewarding.
I only left when the customers were pushing us to cut costs and move production off shore.
The company were very good with share saves and bonuses too.
If you get one of the jobs where targets are achievable it's fine. Otherwise you will get stick every day and the management are old fashioned and just shout because they don't understand the process themselves and don't know what else to do.
Very repetitive work but it pays better than most factories. Hard to progress.
I got on very well at TE and felt that I was really looked after the whole time I was there. Although there were too many changes to what department they wanted me in and my workload decreased massively in my time there. I don’t think there was much thought put into what my role in the company would be in the future, which was a shame as when I was suitably busy I enjoyed my work.
Very strict, fast-paced and stressful workplace. Hard to achieve targets, too high expectations on people and pushing employees over their limits. Some employees are underpaid for the responsibilities they have. Easier at the beginning but the longer you work there, the harder it gets. There are good things as well like special days, training and a possibility of a promotion. Overall, I would say this place is not the worst, but it is best for people who can and like to work like robots - fast with no mistakes.
TE have first class reach into the industrial space with brand recognition that is improving over time. The M&A activities over the years have been well considered and in my case important as this meant that the product set could piggy-back on this reach. Improvements such as increased front line staff and back room capacity would accelerate sales growth further. The operations side are kept separate from the front end and can cause some delay in vital data being acted upon as quickly as the market would like. A useful lesson here.
Lots of interaction globally which I really enjoy. People are friendly and while its a multinational company the smaller family feeling is often found on local sites. For me the best thing is the amount of exposure and opportunities the company can offer. They are investing a lot in system upgrades and improvements which can be difficult in the short term but long term is really beneficial. I think sr management have good vision and a lot of the changes being made are for the best long term. Every day is different and brings new challenges. Its a fast paced environment but I feel I can make an individual difference and contribute. Hours can be long but rewards are satisfying.
Global exposure & opportunities
Sometimes a lot of processes to get a decision made but getting better
always something to do.
can gain the knowledge about different parts
the hardest part was to stand the whole day
the most enjoyable time was when me and my colleague finished our job before expected time
Will not allow you to have a personality ; your success within is reliant on managers liking you rather than your work ethic ; pushed up to your limit in workload ; no sick pay ; basic holiday allowance ; poor pay
