    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great hours and lots of learning. Big company with good benefits. Plenty of opportunity if willing to re-locate. No vacation black out dates.

    Cons

    Pay for managers not the best. In Florida is starts off at $38k per year with possibility of bonuses that you don't have full control of getting. Very unorganized and always having to complete tasks at the last minute because upper management waits too long to filter down information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get more organized and understand exactly what someone in the DSC has to deal with on a day to day basis.

    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.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, internal education and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Hard to get raises and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for the managers to tell their workers thank you more. It would be nice to get raises and promotions and have separate vacation leave and sick time leave instead of one big pot of PTO. . .nice to not worry about losing your job if you are sick a lot. Needs better work/life balance for certain departments/positions.

    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.

    Pros

    Diverse and interesting. Job involved a lot of travel to neat places. Must have great intercommunication skills. Interacted with great people from around the world.

    Cons

    Can get laid off at any time. I never saw it coming. They had to make room for another higher level director. So even though you add a lot of value and do a great job you can get laid off at any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not lay off experienced employees. A lot of knowledge leaves the company.
