Pros

Good global manufacturing experience.
Great global footprint
Well respected EMS provider for OEM's....trying to shift focus to supply chain service company and shirk true EMS moniker.
Creating partnerships with very large companies to play in evolving eco-systems.

Cons

Direct Labor treated as a commodity and disposable.
No loyalty.
Super tight cost focus due to low margins. Lay-offs regular, reorgs regular, travel freeze regular.
Forecasting is weak.
Culture given good lip service....not truly lived.

Advice to Management

CEO needs to get more active/engaged with employees. Good customer focus guy....weak employee focus. No EQ, good IQ Has great ability to do so, but chooses not to.. More respect for GM's at manufacturing plants needed. Corporate calls too many shots independent of local site input.

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

    Pros

    Good place to train for those entering the Medical Engineering field.
    Opportunity to see many aspects of Medical Disposables and EMS.
    Great staff to work with, friendly and hard working.
    Bonuses dependent upon Division and Corporate profits.

    Cons

    Management is highly critical of staff.
    They tend to look for negative attributes of employees and dwell on them.
    Most of Management are under qualified with limited experience.
    Very little opportunity to develop and training limited to meeting FDA requirements.
    Organization is very flat, little to no opportunity for advancement.
    High than average turn-over rate.
    Corporate policy includes tuition reimbursement, but subject to divisional management, and they do not approve tuition reimbursement requests.
    Raises are minimal to non-existent, most lose money with each passing year since annual raises are typically less than cost-of-living.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the best and most knowledgeable staff leave within 4-5 years for increase in pay and advancement, if you want to retain competent staff, address Cons in this review and read some of Zig Ziglar's books - you violate every management and people ideology.
