Who you know matters big time at Flex. Internal politics unfortunately growing. Lots of start/stop activity.

I worked at Flextronics

Pros

Good global manufacturing experience.
Great global footprint
Well respected EMS provider for OEM's....trying to shift focus to supply chain service company and shirk true EMS moniker.
Creating partnerships with very large companies to play in evolving eco-systems.

Cons

Direct Labor treated as a commodity and disposable.
No loyalty.
Super tight cost focus due to low margins. Lay-offs regular, reorgs regular, travel freeze regular.
Forecasting is weak.
Culture given good lip service....not truly lived.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CEO needs to get more active/engaged with employees. Good customer focus guy....weak employee focus. No EQ, good IQ Has great ability to do so, but chooses not to.. More respect for GM's at manufacturing plants needed. Corporate calls too many shots independent of local site input.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was a telecommuter for most of my time. The benefits were great and I loved the people.

    Cons

    Telecommuters were called into offices. Business comes and goes so the people managing that business may do the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees! Acknowledge their contributions.

    Pros

    Great company, people want to perform and do well for their direct reports. Team synergy is fantastic. Great flexibility when it comes to being able to telecommute

    Cons

    Client managed and senior management did not make the right business decisions when it came to who need to be kept when re-alignment was done. disappointed as it was just a friends thing and not who was doing the best. Sad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to ensure senior leadership is making decisions based on the business not on who they like.
