    Be Aware of Management

    Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsHelp you to be exposure with different companies and sites around the world. Management is complete different between sites, I originally start working in MX then move to CA and finally end in TX.

    ConsManagement is the worse area in Flextronics, they don't care about people life, they thing they own you which is wrong. After experience management in three different locations I would said the best was in CA more work-life balance experience, worse for sure Austin, Micromanagement, really bad decision leading to burn the employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink in the people like a people, not just pieces that can be replace and use without any consideration. Don't overwhelm them with micromanagement, most of the times they can work by them self and create their own plan to become success.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not good for long term...

    Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsIt is a good place to get your teeth cut. You'll be exposed to a lot of different projects depending on your work and your section (there are many divisions in Flextronics).

    I had the opportunity to work with very good co-workers and experienced engineers.

    ConsIt is a very demanding environment and you may be required to work extra hours. This may become the norm if you have several projects in the pipeline.

    People getting laid off is not unusual and constant re-organization is the norm. You just don't focus on it otherwise you'd get really dizzy.

     I don't think it is a company that is good for any long term plans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    ProsVery diverse company with expertise in many areas of supply chain - I learned a lot.

    GREAT PLACE TO WORK FOR

    Customer Service Technician (Current Employee) West Hollywood, CA

    ProsGood pay and good experience. Hours weren't that bad. OK management. Customer service is definitely a must at this job. Don't expect to never be busy, but makes the day go by fast. Good area to work around as well.

    ConsManagement is made to where you don't get weekends off at all. The loyal employees are overlooked when it comes to promotions. Sometimes management acts to where you expendable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees better, especially the loyal ones.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
