Pros

If you want to grow the sky is the limit. Great co-workers and endless opportunities.

Cons

Forget about your personal life, they expect you to work 24/7.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Their only interest is profit, they have to find a balance between money and people. Difficult but not impossible.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flextronics Retail Technical Services (formerly known as Solectron USA) employed customer service technicians as a part of a contractual agreement with Verizon Wireless. Customers who had issues with their wireless devices would visit with one of the Flextronics technicians. Generally, it was a good working experience.

    Cons

    You could tell there was an invisible wall between the Verizon store personnel and the Flextronics technicians. Over time, the technicians started doing things that would normally have been done by a Verizon customer service representative in the store. The Verizon people were paid salary plus commission, while the Flextronics people were paid no commission. The technician positions were morphing into a Customer Service Representative position, and that was causing lots of consternation with the Verizon people, because the Flextronics people were suddenly taking sales and commissions away from them. It is a high turnover environment...in fact, I was let go from my position via a phone call from my manager. He didn't even have the guts to face me. Very dissatisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that the Flextronics contract with Verizon Wireless has expired and Flextronics no longer employs people in Verizon Wireless stores, now would be the perfect opportunity for your company to look in detail at what happened and learn from the mistakes that took place. You really need to put your people first.
