    I worked at Flextronics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working conditions. Good benefits Great place to learn. Fast paced enviornment

    Cons

    Top heavy with mangers with little or no skill sets to effectively manage their teams. "Good ole boy" culture still prevails. Some resistance to innovative approach to problem solving\alternative solutions. Do not get too comfortable with your job, layoffs come in waves. Job performance has little to do with who gets laid off. Do not become a squeaky wheel, you will be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat at the middle. To much "me too" by employees that results in excessive and wasteful spending. GHD needs improvement.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is high, but pay per hour is low for exempt employees.

    Cons

    No work life balance at all. The company simply does not care about employees ability to have a personal life.

    Advice to Management

    start caring about employees -- Exempt employees work so much unpaid overtime they cannot have full a personal life.
