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

Pros

Extremely complex business model.
Global culture
Relatively open access to senior leadership
Rapidly changing environment

Cons

A lot of "old timers" who grow or maintain status based upon relationships and politics, not necessary reflected on the work they do or don't do
Company is afraid to take major risks
Large degree of silos
Lack of direction from department leadership
Very short on strategic vision

Advice to Management

Take more risks
Don't forget to grow employees in non-low cost regions
Cut the fat
Tie bonuses to individual performance

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

    Pros

    The pay is okay, and you get 3 weeks of vacation after the first year.

    Cons

    The company does not care about their employees, you work long days and are not very well appreciated. The management team is rude and can not be trusted, I would not recommend working at the Kentucky location.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees with more respect.
