I worked at Sanmina full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

People working here are all professional. Everyone knows what they are doing. Team work is great. Co-workers are friendly mostly.

Cons

Engineers work on weekend 1/3 of time through the year. No raise, no bonus, and no recognition. Remember to file vacation form for being absent in company picnic event before your boss tell you so. management doesn't remember when you OT but do remember if couple minutes late for daily meeting. Difficult to have time off. Boss does not care if you have a life after work.

Advice to Management

For the management who love to the slam desk and yelling at people, you need anger management.
Considering raise the employees who contribute and did work seriously for years to keep them in the company. Keep the people who already familiar with the job is always better than spend time to recruit and train a new staff. Be nice to the employees and employees will work hard for you. Please stop spending for decoration and pay a little money to make some useful changes.

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

    Pros

    Friendly Team. Nice co-workers. Worked when needed for overtime.

    Cons

    Too much unnecessary required overtime for production workers. It is wearing them out.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic w/ the unnecessary overtime for production workers. Way to much of it. Overtime should only be for volunteers.
