Molex has a number of attractive performance appreciation and recognition programs to recognize and to reward significant employee contribution. These include performance bonuses, stock option plan, stock purchase plan, individual and team stock awards. Outstanding Molex employees may be offered cross-function, regional and international career opportunities as well. Not only does Molex focus internally, they believe the customer is king. "There's a strong focus on service right now. The companies that are more flexible and react to quick turnarounds will be the ones to do better. The Molex culture is built on the fact that the customer is king and comes before all of us. The company honors personal commitment, hard work, a sense of urgency in everything, and respect for the world's different cultures. Here, no single individual can ascribe success to himself," said Joe King, vice chairman and chief executive of Molex Inc., Lisle, Ill.

"Our annual communications meetings ensure that our employees know they're a part of something much bigger than their local entities.
