    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great exposure and experience. I was able to learn a lot at my time at the Milpitas Site. Many hard working people. Being in the field, I was able to learn alot and get my hands-on a few projects but I wish there was more direction for the intern program.

    Cons

    Lack of management leadership, very unorganized at times, many smart people but also many slow people.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The have an excellent package of benefits (dinner, insurance, food stamps, savings fund, ETC.) depending on your manager but particulary mine was an excellent leader with great people skills,

    Cons

    No Training at all, they expect you to know an perform your job even if this is your first job as an engineer. You will always work more than 48 hrs a week, workload is amazing and stressful.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to my Manager, but in general for management: they need to focus more on people than on numbers, overload job is a very common thing, dont expect to have the best results if you keep people with more job than what they can take.

    I worked at Flextronics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working conditions. Good benefits Great place to learn. Fast paced enviornment

    Cons

    Top heavy with mangers with little or no skill sets to effectively manage their teams. "Good ole boy" culture still prevails. Some resistance to innovative approach to problem solving\alternative solutions. Do not get too comfortable with your job, layoffs come in waves. Job performance has little to do with who gets laid off. Do not become a squeaky wheel, you will be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat at the middle. To much "me too" by employees that results in excessive and wasteful spending. GHD needs improvement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is high, but pay per hour is low for exempt employees.

    Cons

    No work life balance at all. The company simply does not care about employees ability to have a personal life.

    Advice to Management

    start caring about employees -- Exempt employees work so much unpaid overtime they cannot have full a personal life.
