    I worked at Sanmina-SCI

    Pros

    Competitive salary if you are a fresh graduate. Nothing more.

    Cons

    I am not sure of the situation in USA but there is alot of Frequent Shutdowns when they are not profitable in Singapore Office. Management only thinking for themselves. Freeze headcount and pay increment. Benefits is very minimal.
    Pantry look more like washroom as they only have a hot water dispenser and a water cooler. There is not even a coffee machine. Have to pay for dinner and Dance. Turnover rate is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up your bloody idea!

    I have been working at Sanmina-SCI

    Pros

    Sound's nice as it is 1 of the top market leader in EMS. But it is not competitive at all.

    Cons

    Management's suck. They have no idea what to do. Always think shut down is the best solution. Headcount freeze and not allow to hire. only allow internal transfer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change all the mangement
