    Not good for long term...

    Pros

    It is a good place to get your teeth cut. You'll be exposed to a lot of different projects depending on your work and your section (there are many divisions in Flextronics).

    I had the opportunity to work with very good co-workers and experienced engineers.

    Cons

    It is a very demanding environment and you may be required to work extra hours. This may become the norm if you have several projects in the pipeline.

    People getting laid off is not unusual and constant re-organization is the norm. You just don't focus on it otherwise you'd get really dizzy.

     I don't think it is a company that is good for any long term plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Customer Service Technician in West Hollywood, CA

    Pros

    Good pay and good experience. Hours weren't that bad. OK management. Customer service is definitely a must at this job. Don't expect to never be busy, but makes the day go by fast. Good area to work around as well.

    Cons

    Management is made to where you don't get weekends off at all. The loyal employees are overlooked when it comes to promotions. Sometimes management acts to where you expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better, especially the loyal ones.

    Pros

    You are never bored. Good performance resulting in promotions. Management is open for suggestions. Training opportunities available.

    Cons

    If you are not in the "inner circle" you can easily be the first to be fired during a headcount cut independently of your performance, this is mainly relevant at leader levels. In case of an average employee it is based on real performance. Working environment is not always good in all offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lessons learned never identified from business fails. No real benchmark why no more business can be reached.
