Nice company

Test Engineer Tech (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics as a contractor

ProsHad some of the best co-workers I've ever had here. Everyone was great, we laughed and joked around a lot all while getting our work done.

ConsThe hours are TERRIBLE. You'll work 7 days a week literally for about a month straight, and then other weeks you'll most likely work around 6 days a week. The work-life balance is extremely difficult. I'm still single, so I can't imagine what it's been like for those that are married and that have children.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you don't think someone will be converted from a contract employee to a full-time employee, then just tell them. Don't lead them on for months.
