    Buy and sell

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    You can refuse a task given to you. Managers are too scared to lose their seemingly good people. Too bad for new hires.
    The company is always hiring
    For new hires you do everything your seniors don't want to do and get blamed by being forced to own a problematic project.

    Cons

    The factories here provide bread & butter to thousands of people and they work very hard to keep the company profitable. However, when the going gets tough they are the first to lose their job when management decided on cost cutting. The culture is so focused on blaming, it is not that people in flextronics like to blame, but the novelty of owning up and fixing a problem up to an extend of another's problem always, not often but always, result in that person being severed. A drop of fresh milk into a glass of bad milk changes nothing. This is the 3rd round of layoffs and the people that cheat the system by manipulating the data survives. A lot of politics here and the performance metric is really bad. Backstabbing culture and people using their skills to figure out how to survive rather than what to do to thrive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems to me your middle managers need counseling.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Compensation Package, Competent Leaders

    Cons

    They will use you to the point of abuse, and when they are done, drop you. While the compensation package is good, they will tell you one thing about schedule and the future, and know this, even as an associate you will work 60+ hours a week; NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU. Get what you can for certifications and leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember when companies react, employees that worked hard suffer.

    Pros

    Not many, besides free salad and the smooth interview process, this position has so far has been a drain to my summer. Little room for growth.

    Cons

    There are so many managers, directors, and VPs within the company. Little could be done when you have so many points of contact, with everyone wanting expecting something different from you. Mentors assigned to interns were unresponsive to interns and some were only in the office 1-2x/week. Highly recommend against accepting an offer here.
