    Pros

    Under a great umbrella, fairly new location. Has different branches all over the world. Has a great future if decisions are made sooner than later.

    No one likes to take responsibility for actions, would much rather point fingers. Lack of team effort, lots of politics. There is a lot to improve upon.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and find out what the companies problems. It should not take months to find solutions to problems.

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

    Pros

    great high volume manufacturing company with lots of vertical integration. multi faceted with many BU and differentiated markets to balance the portfolio. good diversification. smart leadership

    Cons

    work life balance is not considered. political. lots of passing the buck, segment ops ownership Vs global ops ownership. low volume manufacturing know how is challenged, lots of waste, good at high volume, low and complex is challenged. wastes a lot of money on experiments. Horrible costing and ABC accounting. Too much allocation.

    Advice to Management

    consolidate operations based on business requirements or product attributes, too much of mixing of manufacturing methodologies. The staff understands continuous flow high volume, struggles with high mix. lot of learning pains.
