Pros

It's a place where you can grow. Management do not limit where employees want to go.

Cons

The company is not for everyone. It's only for goal getters. You have to prove yourself first. I can see why some people might not like FLEX.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication
HR is still very weak (many paper processor people)
Too many captains in a ship

    Pros

    The Opportunity it provides for people in the H/W area in contract manufacturing. decent employers. Can work for life until retirement if people chose that way. Extra career oppurtunities for people who wanted to switch over to other cities/countries and if flextronics existed in that country/city. In my view this a key part

    Cons

    The working hours are Long . Not much focus on Software . Sold of the Software business part to Aricent. The employee morale is not so great especially in the software line of Business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a 360 degree of feedback to find out the root of hte problems . Other wise bad managers would spoil the entire environment.

    Pros

    If you are looking for good benefit, Flextronics does provide good health, stock option, and 401k with 100% matching plan.

    Cons

    Flextronics have poor communication bettween management level and different teams. Lets say there are some issue on production floor, it would take the manager atleast a day later to get notify from the floor supervisor. Another problem, unless your working in the office. If you are on the floor, you'll be working on one of their 2 shifts. 5am to 1.30pm or 1.30pm to 11pm. I happen to be in the 5am shift, there are no way around, programmer have to stay whenever machine operate for support as need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really have to work on the communication bettween management level and different teams.
