Salaries a little low. Gender ratio pretty bad (<10% women) in Engineering design centers.

    Very disorganized management system with over-use of temporary workers.

    I worked at Plexus

    Pros

    -Relaxed work environment
    -Excellent set of benefits (health, dental, vision, life insurance, 401k matching)

    Cons

    -Hires a lot of temps and treats them poorly. Lets temps work for up to 2 years, and then dumps them in favor of new temps.
    -If you are a temp, it is very difficult to get hired on as a full employee.
    - Insane policies. Will have workers take mandatory days off, and then during the same week, have mandatory overtime on the weekend.
    - No raises. There are small base raises that each employee gets every year (around 2 to 4 percent), but that is all. There are no promotional raises or anything like that.

    I have been working at Plexus

    Pros

    There is a lot of variety in the types of product and work that is done, which keeps people from being 'pigeon-holed' into a particular type of position within their field. The management is generally good and responsive. Within the engineering group, most of the managers are degreed engineers also, so it is easier to have technical conversations. The other people who work there make it a very enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    The work is not always cutting-edge technology. Also, promotions to higher level positions are based on opportunity based experiences - if you haven't been assigned by management to a project that helps you meet your objectives for a promotion, you will likely not get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on ensuring that there is good quality work to keep the engineering staff engaged. Otherwise, there is a big risk of losing valuable employees.
