    Pros

    Help you to be exposure with different companies and sites around the world. Management is complete different between sites, I originally start working in MX then move to CA and finally end in TX.

    Cons

    Management is the worse area in Flextronics, they don't care about people life, they thing they own you which is wrong. After experience management in three different locations I would said the best was in CA more work-life balance experience, worse for sure Austin, Micromanagement, really bad decision leading to burn the employees

    Advice to Management

    Think in the people like a people, not just pieces that can be replace and use without any consideration. Don't overwhelm them with micromanagement, most of the times they can work by them self and create their own plan to become success.

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

    Pros

    It is a good place to get your teeth cut. You'll be exposed to a lot of different projects depending on your work and your section (there are many divisions in Flextronics).

    I had the opportunity to work with very good co-workers and experienced engineers.

    Cons

    It is a very demanding environment and you may be required to work extra hours. This may become the norm if you have several projects in the pipeline.

    People getting laid off is not unusual and constant re-organization is the norm. You just don't focus on it otherwise you'd get really dizzy.

     I don't think it is a company that is good for any long term plans.

    Advice to Management

    None.
