    I have been working at Flex full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of different learning opportunities because Flex does contract manufacturing. This means that you get to learn a broad skill set since each project is different and a lot of the projects are 6 months projects. The opportunities for learning at Flex are many.

    Cons

    The office that I worked at has 3 people to a cube. It is very difficult to focus on your work when you are constantly interrupted.

    Former Employee - Senior Benefits Analyst in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Flex full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Colleagues were really nice people. Lots of diversity in non-executive roles.

    Cons

    Nobody knows what they are doing. No worklife balance in my department. As long as you are breathing they expect the most. 7 days per week.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Flex full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing - complete chaos. Very disorganized.

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance. They don't even let you take breaks or lunch. Getting calls every hour of the day, NO downtime at all. Micromanagers who don't help you, at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good people!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Flex full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They'll bend over backwards for technicians who claim they know computers, but they don't anything because engineer is stuck doing they're job.

    Cons

    - Very knee jerk reaction supervisors - Get pretty far by lying - Playing dumb literally gets you far - They will put other people's jobs on your plate (One-Man-Army)

    Advice to Management

    Have Aerotek and the other contract workers stop handing out cheat sheets on computer components to get new hires to sneak past the interview and you may be able to hire competent technicians. Also, whoever agreed to take on the jobsite at Louisville, KN workload is/was a complete imbecile for trying to cram over 100 models in a small section of a department for Lenovo and expected not only engineering but... technicians to just be able to pick these new computers up and just be able to work on them. Floor supervisors never even communicated with the engineer team, they themselves up and decided our site can handle it because six cherry picked technicians went to Louisville and outperformed their technicians. This is a job site, not a community college center.
