I worked at Plexus full-time for more than a year

Pros

The working environment is Friendly and the varied content of contract projects can be more interesting than companies with a small product line. Also, overtime is rare.

Cons

Very few employees are over 40 and there is a focus on new college graduates. There is some pressure to move into management, which can be pro or con depending on what you like to do., equipment budgets are sometimes small, depending on the terms of customer contracts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some "grey hair" is valuable.

    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.
