    Pros

    Has allowed a successful acquisition to remain successful, but this can easily change.

    Cons

    Seems to think in 1950s era management style. Top down, management has privilege, open office, minimum privacy. degree trumps skill, All the things that brought unions to strength are coming back.

    Pros

    A great company to work if favoritism is discouraged.

    Cons

    There is an assumption that as a Payroll Professional you must know it all. Forgetting that every company or industry has a culture and that culture and ways the job is done here is different from others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discourage favoritism. Everyone should be given a chance to excel and do not believe always that the manager is right in all respect.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great hours and lots of learning. Big company with good benefits. Plenty of opportunity if willing to re-locate. No vacation black out dates.

    Cons

    Pay for managers not the best. In Florida is starts off at $38k per year with possibility of bonuses that you don't have full control of getting. Very unorganized and always having to complete tasks at the last minute because upper management waits too long to filter down information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get more organized and understand exactly what someone in the DSC has to deal with on a day to day basis.

    My job working for Flextronics as an At&t phone tech

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company had great benefits and you always got your 40 hours per week.
    I got to work and learn about all different types of phones.

    Cons

    The company would change the rules very often and sometimes not inform you.
    Also the company had an open door policy but if you used it you would get talked to about doing that not really an open door policy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people and not just like and number.
    Also take the time to listen to them instead of them telling them that you are wrong and they are right.
