I worked at Plexus full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Plexus will hire just about anyone for the production floor. If you really need a job and overtime. It is a good place for someone to start out of high school.

Cons

Often the production staff would come into work very negative because it didn't seem to matter how hard we worked. It was never enough in quantity or quality. The upper management really had no idea of the workings of the production floor.

Advice to Management

Please hire supervisors who are "people" persons. The work environment would be so much less negative if there were more supervisors who would treat the production staff as if their input mattered.

    I have been working at Plexus full-time

    Pros

    There are many very smart people at Plexus, many of whom pour their heart and soul into their work. These people are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Severe cost cutting (layoffs) have left many groups, such as IT, very short-handed. It does not appear that this will be changing in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying solely about the current stock price and focus on the 5, 10 and 20 year picture.

    I worked at Plexus full-time

    Pros

    Great Engineers on personal and professional level & Culture (But both are eroding quickly)

    Cons

    Sub-Par pay
    Sub-Par benefits (No bonus for engineers Average of 3% raises each year)
    Sub-Par management (Management has low average of experience and little product development experience)
    --
    Management just permanently removed bonuses for engineers stating that it isn't the "Norm" for engineers to get bonuses!
    Management completely discounts experienced engineers, and the career path of being only an engineer and not a manager.
    Upper management is disconnected from mid level management and engineering, accountability has been lost for managers.

    Advice to Management

    You've lost several great engineers over the past 6 months, pay attentions to the attrition before it's to late.

    Stop letting manufacturing drive your decisions.
