    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Help you to be exposure with different companies and sites around the world. Management is complete different between sites, I originally start working in MX then move to CA and finally end in TX.

    Cons

    Management is the worse area in Flextronics, they don't care about people life, they thing they own you which is wrong. After experience management in three different locations I would said the best was in CA more work-life balance experience, worse for sure Austin, Micromanagement, really bad decision leading to burn the employees

    Advice to Management

    Think in the people like a people, not just pieces that can be replace and use without any consideration. Don't overwhelm them with micromanagement, most of the times they can work by them self and create their own plan to become success.

    Pros

    Flexibility - you are able to work from home if you're productive enough.
    Fast pace - the more customers, the better...plus, positions are usually not backfilled, especially if the position is in the U.S.. Ukraine? no problem!
    Diversity - People from all over the world work here
    There's a basketball court here on the San Jose campus.
    Pretty decent benefits.

    Cons

    Lower salary than market
    "old boys's group" syndrome - relatively young workforce, but some who have been here stay, because they're buds with one of the executives
    Hesitant to spend money that needs to be spent.
    Diversity is great, but sometimes your teammates are in exotic places that sometimes require conference calls at exotic hours.
    No recognition - my coworker's ten year anniversary went unnoticed.

    Advice to Management

    Quit acquiring new companies until you get this one profitable enough to get the stock price above $11.
