I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Competent local management
Good communication and cooperation between site level teams fostered a "get er done" attitude
Fast paced, never boring
Competitive benefits

Cons

As with most contract manufacturers at this level you are only as good as the "best" customer at your site.
No apparent cohesive corporate level strategy to aggressively increase U.S. sites business. Corporate, reactive not proactive. It's every site for them selves, sink or swim.
Too many layers of expensive corporate level management which impacts individual sites ability to provide the lower cost value proposition customers in this space demand.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lean manufacturing and management principles are not just for the individual factory sites, They are crucial at the top. When evaluating corporate level business processes and practices don't be afraid... embrace the "Five WHYS".
