    I have been working at Sanmina-SCI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I like that there is a bit of a family atmosphere and managers are willing to help. The culture is pretty decent and the benefits are good. It is a good place to start and get a good foundation.

    Cons

    There can be unreasonable demands and there is a lot of stress no the job. There are too many periods where employees can't advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that when the plant shuts down because work is slow, employees shouldn't be forced to use their own vacation. They should be allowed to charge to downtime. There are some managers that need to understand that employees have home lives outside of the company. I have heard too many stories of managers not willing to work with employees that have family obligations.

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

    Pros

    People working here are all professional. Everyone knows what they are doing. Team work is great. Co-workers are friendly mostly.

    Cons

    Engineers work on weekend 1/3 of time through the year. No raise, no bonus, and no recognition. Remember to file vacation form for being absent in company picnic event before your boss tell you so. management doesn't remember when you OT but do remember if couple minutes late for daily meeting. Difficult to have time off. Boss does not care if you have a life after work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the management who love to the slam desk and yelling at people, you need anger management.
    Considering raise the employees who contribute and did work seriously for years to keep them in the company. Keep the people who already familiar with the job is always better than spend time to recruit and train a new staff. Be nice to the employees and employees will work hard for you. Please stop spending for decoration and pay a little money to make some useful changes.
