    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn everything about the EMS business
    There are some truly wonderful people there

    Cons

    There are many more less than wonderful people - some of this may be a matter of the type of employees who end up in EMS as opposed to OEM and some are good people who are simply under way too much stress from a ridiculous workload, disorganization, low-quality coworkers, and a culture than almost openly encourages hostility and confrontation

    Advice to Management

    Resign

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

    Pros

    Love the people that I worked with day to day.
    Lots of community involvement projects where employees are encouraged to participate

    Cons

    Workload too heavy and as staff is downsized workload increases
    Upper Management more invested in "the good ole boys club" than in selecting the best person for the job
    Constantly in a downsizing mode and sending jobs offshore where it is cheaper

    Advice to Management

    Look at the future. It is not all about saving a dime today. It may cost you millions in the future. Cheaper is not always better

    Pros

    There is no pros about this company

    Cons

    This place is not flexible at all. They are very strict and micromanage if your sick throwing up they force you to come in . Do not work here if you want a life. They control everything you do. They don't care about you. Just you being a slave

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees

    Pros

    Very Friendly and compassionate and they determined to help you succeed. A company that puts their employees first.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any cons. The only thing that can come to mind is the company is so big it's hard to communicate with a higher up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job on training employees and helping them move up the chain. Awesome work to all of you!
