    Pros

    Lots of Overtime if want to work

    Cons

    Poor Management, lots of lay-offs, No Team work, contracts don't receive any type of credit of hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advise from co- workers and don't turn your back on your own team.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, lots of room for moving lateral or up

    Cons

    Overworked, poor work-life balance, thankless, treated expendable, and expected to move shifts during changes in the project demands on a short notice. Management talks about values but I don't see the practicing of the preaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you see personnel looking as if they are about to kill over, give them a day off without telling them to take vacation time. Pulling double shifts and never mentioning how thankful you are for having people who sacrifice their lives for a business is very disheartening. Appreciation goes a long way.

    Pros

    a chance to see how company operate in this large size of the sacle. Many employee work there for a long time and enviroment is friendly.

    Cons

    Maybe becuase it is big that sometime, one simple thing will go through many processes that a small company will be done quickly. work expection will be almost no training or transition given for a new job assignment. Salary tends to be low.

    Pros

    I could get on the Flextronics University website and take all different classes in almost any field there is to think of. I can further my career and move up and since it is a worldwide company you learn a lot more stuff here than you would in just a one country company.

    Cons

    Sometimes there isn't a lot of work, since I was working in Flextronics, but for Aerotek I got laid off. I really loved this company and all it had. Its a shame I didn't get to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire me back. I am a really hard worker and want to move up in my career. MaryAlice Cancino

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses, good management, friendly co-workers, good pay, provides raises, some flexibility with personal schedule. Perks like on site cafeteria and coffee bar. Time off was adequate and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    HVAC system and building need updated. Not really on board with telecommuting. Team initiatives was not a strong point, and options for growth were limited. Training was sporadic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back ability to telecommute for those with kids.
