When it was Soletron...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Flextronics as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThis was back in the mid 1990's so can not speak of what the company is like today. However, back then, it was a great place to work.

ConsSolectron got bought out and most of the manufacturing is now in Asia.

A company that truly values its employees

Field Team Supervisor (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

I worked at Flextronics full-time for more than a year

ProsThey will work with you to ensure you have a great work and life balance. I felt that I was appreciated during my time there.

ConsThe only con is the fact that you could lose the contract you're working on. That is what happened to me but I cannot blame Flex for that.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

Flex Cares??

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than a year

ProsThe company does have good benefits

ConsAfter an exceptionally good experience working for a small company, being acquired by this large international company was not a good experience. It had to happen, conforming to their rules, methods of operations etc, and eventual total dismantling of what our company was, people laid off and operations moved to Mexico and other locations.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider not using the term "Flex Cares"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Does not care about employees.

Repair Technician (Former Employee)
Memphis, TN

I worked at Flextronics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI really can't think of anything positive about this company.

ConsHorrible working conditions, poor management, poor pay, unrealistic expectations. Employees always get blamed for everything by management. You always feel like your job is not secure.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to treat and pay your employees better so that you won't have such a high turnover rate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: many opportunities, little time. Cons: Pros: many opportunities, little time.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than a year

ProsMany opportunities. Flextronics will let you run with ideas, and hold you accountable for the ideas. Lots of projects coming up, lots of new faces, and hiring is increasing.

ConsMany opportunities, not enough time. Very lean company, lots of people overloaded with assignments.
This may be indicative of the contract manufacturing environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementGood hard working people on multiple levels. Culture of working long hours. Need to take into consideration when hiring people if the culture will be a good fit.

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