It pays the bills

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Flextronics

ProsHolidays paid time and a half, health insurance is good compared to other companies, great way to build up your resume, a lot of time typing on the computer makes your hands speedy. Nice co-workers.

ConsUnable to use cellphone at any time, training is very poor, and usually things have to be figured out between you and your co-workers, do not expect a raise, expect working standing up in on place, expect angry customers, expect to have vacations denied, expect to be short staffed, your best will never be their best

Advice to Senior ManagementRaises,promotions to the hard workers, not the most likable, better hours, better training, actually open devices, teach people how to actually troubleshoot issues. Do not come up with a new program and change it after 2 or 3 weeks, actually work on it. Work with ATT to have smarter solutions, not just for the moment solutions.

RTS: No room for growth, sounds good on paper, disappointing in the end.

Retail Technical Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics

Pros-Pay is ok
-Job is rather easy
-Co-workers are for the most part friendly

Cons-Everything you do is Micro-managed.
-Very little to no room for growth.
-NO raises
-Policy changes on the fly.
-There's a huge lack of communication within the company.
-Sense of favoritism within the workplace.
-No boost in employee morale.
-Employees are required to sell Asurion's insurance for AT&T with no commission.
-Frequent schedule changes (2 to 3x's a week)
-Technologically impaired customers can be a pain to work with at times

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to find ways to boost employee morale..A raise wouldn't hurt.

Keep taking more away from the workers to give more to upper management.

Production Scheduler (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at Flextronics

ProsYou can gain valuable work experience and exposure to all aspects of global manufacturing. You will learn lean six sigma continuous improvement.

ConsIt seems that raises and promotions are a thing of the past except for the management team. Company 401k contributions have been stopped and employee contribution for benefits continue to go up.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should realize that the manufacturing employees are the ones who build the products that pay our salary's and keep the doors open.
