I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very good culture among engineers, technicians and direct labor workers. Management often invites even the lowest level worker to help in the decision making processes that have direct relation to their job. Good continual self improvement efforts regarding manufacturing process flow.

Cons

Managements unwillingness to step up to customers that don't support their test equipment, instead telling their engineers to "Deal with it." rather than getting the customer to fix their problems. Sometimes lots of pressure and overtime to try and meet tight production schedules. Hockey-stick quarters due to wall-street driven revenue targets, resulting in hurry up and wait situations, instead of steady flow.

Advice to Management

Listen to your engineers and don't tolerate customers that aren't willing to support your production efforts.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You get to play with new phones all the time
    - Satisfaction when customer's are really grateful for you services
    - never a dull day

    Cons

    - Pay. Pay. Pay. You expect a LOT out of your employees, but aren't paying them to do all of the extra work.
    - Not enough actual training. All the new phones that come out, we essentially teach ourselves how to use them. There is no real tools to make KNOWING how to do your job easier.
    - Pay.
    - Open on Sunday
    - Being forced to work 10-11 hr days
    - New management is hiring a lot of their former employees from other companies based on personal relationships. And the new hires are ALL awful.
    - No real opportunity for growth

    Advice to Management

    Only promote from within. Hiring managers that have no clue how to do the most basic function of the job over your current Supervisors that have put in the work seems pretty crappy. If you don't feel they're ready, you should spend more time developing your employees to prepare then for higher positions. Also, pay people what they're worth.
