    I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Best place for freshers and people who can be patient to gain the benefit. Salary could be less initially but once performance is proven, the recognition will be taken care. Greater visibility and wide avenues for learning. Work life balance definitely possible.

    Cons

    Nothing in specific to mention....

    Pros

    The best reasons for working at Flex would have to be the people, compensation, and management.

    Cons

    I really have no cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I make a mistake I would like to know right away (to make sure it doesn't happen again), not have to hear about it from someone else.

    I worked at Flextronics as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Flextronics provided a great culture and challenged me to succeed. They provided me with higher level work and allowed me to excel.

    Cons

    They are working with a very small margin so it was sometimes long hours to work with the budget with decent pay. The full time employees worked even longer hours as well.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    None.
