    I have been working at Flexco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All the people are great to work with
    Seems that everyone is decently compensated
    For non hourly workers, work hours are very flexible

    Cons

    Part of a dying industry
    Work life balance could be better (while the hours are flexible you may be expected to work many hours)
    Generally disengaged sales team
    Communication could be better

    I worked at Flexco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hardly ever were rushed, and if you were it was because you personally were slowing down, the environment was good, mainly positive thoughts and positive sayings were given daily.

    Cons

    Only disadvantages I could possibly say would be the warehouse would get really hot, and there wasn't a very good way to create a crossbreeze.

    Advice to Management

    Come out to the warehouse a little more, maybe get to know the temporary employees.

    Pros

    Great management. Company truly cares about the employees. Many employees have been working their since they graduated. I highly recommend this company.

    Cons

    Not a lot of mobility for the engineers as I understand. They are likely stuck working on very similar projects for years at a time unless they change companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome. Great Bonuses at Christmas time. Paid Time off. Tuition reimbursement. Everything management does is awesome.
