    Pros

    Great benefits overall- I had a great manager, Paid vacation was great and helped a lot for seeing family. I have been very happy with the training also.

    Cons

    My great manager got let go. A lot of pressure to be sales instead of tech. Goals need to be curved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Curve the goals based on foot traffic of the store. Somestores do not ge as high of volune of customers and will ot hit the impossible goals.

    Current Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Sorocaba, São Paulo (Brazil)

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

    Pros

    I got an intensive experience, I could understand and follow the company's politics effectively. My direct managers had a very wide experiences, thus I could learn and develop a lot.
    I had crucial opportunities of growth, I was promoted once a year and could have experience in several departments of the company.

    Cons

    The workload is really heavy, for a period I had about 60hs of overtime monthly (beyond the normal 45hs weekly). Some people get really stressed due the pressure for results (this made me mature a lot and learn how to deal with it, but some people get really bad for that, even sick).
    The food they offered in the company's restaurant was really bad, many people (including myself) brought food from home - some days it was impossible to eat the food offered.
    The food was a huge problem for me, I spent a lot of money eating out or a lot of work bringing food from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would be happy to pay a little more for the food benefit if they could improve the food quality, as I stated in the Cons, it was a huge problem for me.

    Pros

    Best place for freshers and people who can be patient to gain the benefit. Salary could be less initially but once performance is proven, the recognition will be taken care. Greater visibility and wide avenues for learning. Work life balance definitely possible.

    Cons

    Nothing in specific to mention....
