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

    Pros

    Good pay and good experience. Hours weren't that bad. OK management. Customer service is definitely a must at this job. Don't expect to never be busy, but makes the day go by fast. Good area to work around as well.

    Cons

    Management is made to where you don't get weekends off at all. The loyal employees are overlooked when it comes to promotions. Sometimes management acts to where you expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better, especially the loyal ones.

    Pros

    Flextronics allows those with go-getter styles to quickly move up within the organization. The work environment is one where new ideas are promoted and recognized when they add value to the business.

    Cons

    The size of the organization makes it difficult to leverage consistent practices. There are challenges in working through the various areas of the business to get things done quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on best practices and standarization to help customers to not be surprised when building programs in various sites/business segments.

    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.

    Pros

    You are never bored. Good performance resulting in promotions. Management is open for suggestions. Training opportunities available.

    Cons

    If you are not in the "inner circle" you can easily be the first to be fired during a headcount cut independently of your performance, this is mainly relevant at leader levels. In case of an average employee it is based on real performance. Working environment is not always good in all offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lessons learned never identified from business fails. No real benchmark why no more business can be reached.

    I have been working at Flextronics as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    People are nice (My boss and co-workers are awesome!)
    Work for the most part is very easy.

    Cons

    Working 7 days a week (Every other weekend we get off)
    Pay is not great
    Your working 9-10 hours a day.
    your breaks a really short
    you always standing ( on concrete, so your legs WILL HURT!)
    Rules are EXTREAMLY strict
    The recruiter\traning people will tell you highly inaccurate information so you will take the job
    ( and they do it because they take money from your paycheck for recuting you until you are no longer a contractor)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give longer breaks, and maybe invest in some more chairs, and people so we dont have to work over time.
