Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Sanmina full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Slow pace
Easy to get a job
Excellent learning ground for a variety of industries

Cons

Highly stressful due to bureaucracy
Non-transparent / no direction from upper management
Constant threat of lay-off (I was there for over 9 years)
Trivial raises

Advice to Management

Remove bureaucracy.
Focus on making more profit rather than just saving money (cost cutting, lay-offs)
Incentivize long term outlook from plant VPs rather than quarterly/annual performance
Retain long-term employee by proper incentives rather than penny-pinching.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to grow and build. Working autonomous is key to being successful and not having to deal with executive management breathing down your neck

    Cons

    micro management and continuous renegotiating of comp plans.

    Advice to Management

    Too much middle management. You can get more done with the right management in place.
