    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Provide benefits, tuition reimbursement, full-time hours and bonuses based on store performance.

    Cons

    No developmental growth even though thats what they use to promote the positions. Lack of communication from top to bottom even though grievances are shared from bottom to top they say they listen but they don't. Even with customers there is lack of communication so when they re given wrong info from the corporate store they end up at the DSC screaming demanding something that we don't even have.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and nice building.

    Cons

    Low job security! They don't think twice about letting you go, even if you're doing a great job and are getting good reviews. In one word, heartless. Security is a nightmare to deal with!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overpaid and underworked!

    I have been working at Flextronics

    Pros

    Great opportunity for those willing to take initiative
    Fast paced environment with little tolerance for bureaucracy
    Good people culture without inter division politics that I have seen at similar sized companies

    Cons

    Operations focus often leads to tactical, 'low risk and low rewards' near term decisions
    Senior management are starting to adopt a more strategic approach but may take time for rank and file to change behaviors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think like a product company and feel free to be open to more ideas and taking some risks

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

    Pros

    Flex is a global Company with many Sites in many different countries . Many of the sites feature Amenities like Cafe , gyms and rec area . Many SItes also offer bonuses and incentive based on Compensation to hourly employees.

    Cons

    Due to the lean nature of the business model , not all sites enjoy the amenities above . Often employees are place uner harsh work schedules and are asked to perform well under heavy pressure ,also jobs in US and Europe are moving to oversea and India due to Cut cost on all the lean project .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep jobs in US will save more money than cleaning up all the mess in oversea
