Former Employee - Engineer in Raleigh, NC

I worked at Plexus full-time

Pros

Great Engineers on personal and professional level & Culture (But both are eroding quickly)

Cons

Sub-Par pay
Sub-Par benefits (No bonus for engineers Average of 3% raises each year)
Sub-Par management (Management has low average of experience and little product development experience)
--
Management just permanently removed bonuses for engineers stating that it isn't the "Norm" for engineers to get bonuses!
Management completely discounts experienced engineers, and the career path of being only an engineer and not a manager.
Upper management is disconnected from mid level management and engineering, accountability has been lost for managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've lost several great engineers over the past 6 months, pay attentions to the attrition before it's to late.

Stop letting manufacturing drive your decisions.

    Current Employee - Senior Management in Appleton, WI

    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.

    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.
