I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- lean management; you get to work directly with senior managements
- friendly and dynamic workflow, always on the run
- if willing, a lot of opportunities for different responsibilities and jobs
- multicultural

Cons

- tight budget
- average, not competitive pay and benefits
- too many rules and regulations even for people in non-production line
- senior managements are old fashioned and hardly open to new ideas
- i guess the only way to get more money is to get out and get back in here
- too much hiring, too little training and development. Paying a performer double the salary is better than hiring 2 retirees. Bigger pay begets loyalty and retain talents.
- whistle blower culture, promotes back stabbing which demotes trust. Wouldn't need to impose this kind of culture had you focused on hiring only people with integrity
- need more people who can speak english, due to multicultural, dire need of mastery of a common language

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- too many retirees lying around, please review your performance review system
- the factories and systems seriously need a makeover. Invest a bit of money won't hurt after decades of staying the same, same goes to senior management's mentality
- need more training and clearer document management system

    I worked at Flextronics as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Help full production line workers.

    Cons

    Management never listen to the employees. when problem occurred, they blame it on the lower lever (Production line workers). Newmarket Flextronics Quality Team is the worst managed team in the company. They really have to fire the quality manager. Flextronics quality teams do not care about the quality until the rim come to inspection. They do not train employee well and when problem occurred, they blame it on the employee. Chair is one of the worst and many got back pain because of that and afraid to tell them due to the lay off. You have to suck up to the manager to get to promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you people are managers. At least once in a while listen to the production line employees (i.e, how to improve the quality). Engineering team or managers at least once a month come the production line to see what you can do to improve the production ( do not come to the production because RIM or any other customers going to come for inspection)
