I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Tremendous amount of opportunity to learn about customer needs, large scale operation and business process discipline. There is no shortage of excitement because there is always something new that's happening.

Cons

Over the years the company has became overly bureaucratic, self centered and unwilling or unable to implement real changes. Despite the increases in internal communication, the top executives are increasingly more distanced from the real world.

Advice to Management

1) The company needs to quickly evolve beyond its eroding EMS business model. 2) Need to learn how to navigate in the unfamiliar emerging markets. 3) Culture is what we practice, not something we say.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loose work environment. Very smart employees especially IL. I loved working with my co workers just not the company. It may have just been my site but once the trust worthy people were laid off all that was left behind were managers doing the best job they can to retain the rest of the staff. Needless to say that did not work at all.

    Cons

    Frequent lay offs. Promises of promotions that don't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being dishonest and just shoot people straight. Sometimes when an employees feel as if a promotion is deserved just answer with a yes or no. Never make a promise you can not keep and that was the main concern working for Flextronics.
