Our Culture

We’re a little (ok, a lot) different from most companies our size. It works for us, but it isn’t for everyone…

“Self-Development” of Career Path

This happens at the intersection of focusing on an individual’s strengths and interests, how those align with business needs (which we call putting “round pegs in round holes”), and providing ongoing challenges to accelerate the process. Continuous learning is enhanced by the job itself, coupled with formal and informal mentoring and training. Roles are often created for people, as opposed to putting people in pre-defined boxes on an org chart.

Profit Sharing

Unlike companies with pre-determined salaries based on seniority and title, our variable pay-for-performance compensation makes us all stakeholders when it comes to needs of the customer, and the growth and success of the company. The compensation model blends individual and company performance.

Work/Life Balance

In today’s 24/7 connected world, the line between work and home can get blurred. While we do have pre-defined work hours, there is plenty of flexibility. The work environment is friendly, family-oriented, and fun. Our benefits reflect this as well, offering employees a wealth of options and versatility to tailor what is most suitable for them.

Business Model/Financial Position

We have a unique business model that emphasizes differentiation and leadership of both Technology and Service. Being privately held and debt free enables us to move faster, take risks on new innovations, and stay flexible while maintaining a long-term time horizon.

“Sudden Service”

We’re known for service leadership, but it’s also a way of life. The customer-centric, fast-paced mantra ensures we stay focused, minimize bureaucracy, and align priorities and decision-making. It’s the over-arching compass that guides us to provide differentiated value to the customer experience, and creates a win-win career and work environment for our employees. A long history of ranking #1 in Customer Service in the annual Bishop Awards, which is an honor bestowed by the global connector industry’s leading market research firm, reflects our commitment to service.

Co-Op Program

A co-op with Samtec isn’t a normal, run-of-the-mill co-op. You’re not here to fetch our coffee. You’re here to make a real difference to the company, to your career and to the development of technology. There will be no busy work. You will be busy, but with real projects and real problems to solve. You’ll get a broad range of experience and interact with many business units including Purchasing, Operations, Sales, Marketing, and Engineering to give you a “big-picture” business view.

Sustainability

Big on community, easy on environment.

We care about making our communities better places to live, work, play and go to school by finding ways to lend a hand—both in time and money.

Our efforts span philanthropic activities with charities around the world, environmental initiatives, health and safety projects, and stringent ethics and social responsibility policies.

Samtec’s UN Sustainability Report, provides all of the specifics if you would like to know more.

Samtec Cares

Being a good corporate citizen of a community carries with it responsibility. Since the majority of Samtec employees come from surrounding towns and cities, Samtec plays a big impact in this role as we look to improve the quality of life for our employees when they leave work for the day.

The Samtec Cares Grant Program was created to positively impact and assist charitable organizations within these communities. Samtec’s philanthropic focus includes grant making to charitable non-profit organizations that focus on Community Development, Health and Social Services, Arts and Culture as well as one-time sponsorships to local schools, clubs, walks, golf scrambles or similar fundraising events.
