I have been working at Plexus full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

in the 90's - a great place to work where ALL workers were treated well

Cons

NOW it's only the very top view who see stock options, bonus and increases in salary. Only the very top will be given the chance to retire from Plexus. When you reach a certain level they will let you go before giving you a chance to retire. In the 25+ years Plexus has been in business - you can count the number of retiries on two hands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dean and especially Mike.... Time to Retire - let someone who knows how to grow a business take over AND nurture TOP clients.

    Enjoyed working on a variety of projects

    Former Employee - Product Engineer in Raleigh, NC
    Former Employee - Product Engineer in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Plexus full-time (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.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are good people.

    Cons

    Treated like you're in 2nd grade. Tick sheets for idiot bosses to look at to see what you're doing throughout the day. Maybe they should really get to know you and your job. Technicians are red headed step children. Management complaints are always directed at test department. Something went wrong? Let's just blame test. Way too many overpaid cube staff that don't have a clue but their good to go because they have a 4 year degree right? Turnover ratio is just unbelievable. Never seen anything like it. All the good employees leave. The people who suck up move up. CEO is arrogant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your people and start really caring instead of pretending to.
