    My job working for Flextronics as an At&t phone tech

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company had great benefits and you always got your 40 hours per week.
    I got to work and learn about all different types of phones.

    Cons

    The company would change the rules very often and sometimes not inform you.
    Also the company had an open door policy but if you used it you would get talked to about doing that not really an open door policy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people and not just like and number.
    Also take the time to listen to them instead of them telling them that you are wrong and they are right.

    Good company to work for if hired at a corporate location instead of an acquisition site.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable work hours but just average work quality. Not satisfying job at all.

    Cons

    No career growth opportunities within the organization. It may be different if one is hired at a corporate location but if you're part of an acquisition site, most likely one would end up doing the same thing without any growth.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is some room for growth, there is limited supervision. Its a pretty good fit for a very young professional looking to get there foot in the door.

    Cons

    There is a lack of vison, goals change very quickly, there is little support. Poor upper management. Salaries are stagnate with little to no raises. There is a bonus structure but its hard to attain.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Just like the Mexican Mafia the money was decent but you really have no idea how long you will be there, it is not dependent on job performance, I received several raises and praises before my original boss got the chainsaw.

    Cons

    It is a little bit more disorganized than the Mexican Mafia, It can be a lengthy fight to find out who is in control and sometimes the customers win, just be sure not to show over loyalty to one side since it might be different the next day, week or month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Basically here in Austin it is Solectron, just with the name change, the company itself really has employee relations as a very low priority. Flextronics that I was familiar with in California actually has a pretty decent rating and is run efficiently with organized management teams. Here there is no real plan and management is corrupt.

    Managers are not aware of people issues on the floor and don't care about employees.

    Pros

    Floor workers get great support from the engineering technicians.

    Cons

    Management more worried about quantity than quality. Product going out the door is very low quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on board and understand the reasons for poorest quality in the industry. Get more competent quality engineers and quality management personnel.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are good caring people that work hard. After 10 years can have 5 weeks of vacation to use. If you are not in production your hours can be flexible.

    Cons

    Last minute changes when management decides to work weekend. This site does not promote from within. All movement tends to be lateral. Bonuses that use to be a selling point for the lower pay are not on par. It's manufacturing and they work production hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company says it likes to develop and promote from within. Maybe that policy should be better implemented.
