    Pros

    Good Benefits and Compensation Package, Competent Leaders

    Cons

    They will use you to the point of abuse, and when they are done, drop you. While the compensation package is good, they will tell you one thing about schedule and the future, and know this, even as an associate you will work 60+ hours a week; NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU. Get what you can for certifications and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Remember when companies react, employees that worked hard suffer.

    Pros

    Very competitive salary and as much overtime as you can handle.

    Cons

    When times are lean and overtime is a bad word then it is time to update your resume. When the axe comes down it is swift and painless.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the qualified talent and not just the "yes" people and there will be less of a let down in production when layoffs are neccessary.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive and benefits are great but downgraded. Work load is depending on what account you work with, sometime great while sometime hectic. Some senior management are decent while some act hyper most of the time. Work environment is safe and security guards on duty all the time.

    Cons

    Unless you just want paycheck then this location is worse for you. There are less chance for an advancement. Be ready to work under one who barely speaks english who's educational credential never been verified. This place hardly work as a team and most of the times it's all about "I" instead "us" crazy but true. Here are the breakdowns depending on what you're interested in. Analyst: Work get done but unexpected demands that must get meet, it's harsh demand most of the time with short timeline. Program manager: Mostly ego between each other and group building to play politics. Testing: Most won't last long here because this plant has awkward understanding about testing, also extreme pressure from customers. Quality: Your name will be on paper but you will be doing nothing or considered for nothing. Process: All day long every day play with pipes and build benches, everything else is beyond their scope of work or simply waste of paid time if they try to do anything. IT: Great place to learn then must get out. Facility: random changes that you will scratch your bald head mode than you actually work here. Lead: Listen to him listen to her listen to all, no ideas what you will do here. Supervisor: Make a point and stand on your legs or else someone else will run the show, very strange. Manager: Same as a supervisor and ready to stay under a gun, you will hardly make any good decisions. Line people: Lucky to have regular hours, sometime too many sometime less. It's a cut dog eat dob business. They try many ideas and talent but nothing works at sometime. If you're talented then stay away. Many talented works here however find themselves trapped and looking for exit. Nothing negative these are all realities.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing....may be one. Do not give power to uneducated barely english speaking idiots. Hire some locals instead of wasting time of talent hire people. This place is what it should deserve.

    Pros

    I love what I do it's very challenging.

    Cons

    The facility I work at, is very unfair in, promotions, rasies, as well as advancement. Along with there's no accountability for when people mess up

    Advice to Management

    There is none. Nobody cares enough to do anything. So why bother

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to try different departments for better fit and wide variety of types of positions. Lots of locations worldwide so opportunity to travel or for relocation.

    Cons

    Corporate management and structure is constantly changing. The company is so large they have no depth in actual experienced managers for a variety of the segments. Ends up just a corporate pencil pusher or finance people really making decisions. This may work for their electronics divisions but not so great for some of the other more highly regulated divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Retain people that know what they are doing rather than the lowest paid person. Or sacrificing experienced people in order to afford a high paid manager that doesn't know what they are doing.

    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 Management

    None.

    Pros

    Very diverse company with expertise in many areas of supply chain - I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Difficult to grow with them as promotions are rare. Corporate culture is very slow and 1990s...

    Advice to Management

    Ask the team what needs to be fixed - they know.
