    It was a great place to work as the people were great..

    Regional Director (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGreat company, people want to perform and do well for their direct reports. Team synergy is fantastic. Great flexibility when it comes to being able to telecommute

    ConsClient managed and senior management did not make the right business decisions when it came to who need to be kept when re-alignment was done. disappointed as it was just a friends thing and not who was doing the best. Sad

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to ensure senior leadership is making decisions based on the business not on who they like.

    Growing learning, and Leaving

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI was a telecommuter for most of my time. The benefits were great and I loved the people.

    ConsTelecommuters were called into offices. Business comes and goes so the people managing that business may do the same.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees! Acknowledge their contributions.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAll my reviews are based on IT services only.

    1. Good work environment
    2. Not much politics from management side
    3. Best work life balance

    Cons1. No innovative works
    2. You will forget technology fully since nobody talks about it
    3. Zero learning

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease think of Technology growth happening even in software not just in hardware.

    Flextronics Medial, Irving, TX

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsGood place to train for those entering the Medical Engineering field.
    Opportunity to see many aspects of Medical Disposables and EMS.
    Great staff to work with, friendly and hard working.
    Bonuses dependent upon Division and Corporate profits.

    ConsManagement is highly critical of staff.
    They tend to look for negative attributes of employees and dwell on them.
    Most of Management are under qualified with limited experience.
    Very little opportunity to develop and training limited to meeting FDA requirements.
    Organization is very flat, little to no opportunity for advancement.
    High than average turn-over rate.
    Corporate policy includes tuition reimbursement, but subject to divisional management, and they do not approve tuition reimbursement requests.
    Raises are minimal to non-existent, most lose money with each passing year since annual raises are typically less than cost-of-living.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany of the best and most knowledgeable staff leave within 4-5 years for increase in pay and advancement, if you want to retain competent staff, address Cons in this review and read some of Zig Ziglar's books - you violate every management and people ideology.

    It's good place to startup, but don't hope for any future career

    Computer Repair Technician (Current Employee)
    Newmarket, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat flexibility for working hours and competitive pay package. also very fine environment at job place. no stress, and no worries. Can't feel any kind of work related tension.

    ConsPoor management and unexperienced staff. Most of the full timers are not willing to learn and adopt new technologies.

    Not good

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was able to keep my job during a difficult time. I survived a layoff where 40% of the plant was laid off.
    My pay was reduced 20% and it never recovered.

    ConsThere are too many negatives to discuss.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI worked at Solectron prior to my experience at Flex. Solectron was much more focused on doing the job correctly. Management at Flex needs to get involved. The approach is too hands off.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
