    I worked at Flextronics full-time

    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!

    Pros

    I loved the working environment at Flex. The community was encouraging and supportive, especially towards women. It's a great place to be to advance your career within the project management area; in general there are loads of opportunities at Flex, since they handle schematics and test models from some of the biggest tech giants, as well as various other really cool startup tech companies.

    Cons

    The biggest drawback to me was that there wasn't really a research and development department in the US that I was aware of, in spite of the fact that it is a contract manufacturing company. The closest thing was probably Multek, or interconnect technology center, which was pretty small in comparison to how large of a corporation Flex is. There is an R&D facility located in Taiwan.

    Another thing that I had to consider was that Flex's corporate finance follows more of the manufacturing model. So, the pay scale is affected accordingly for its employees. (min costs for production with max output)

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CTO who is experienced in processing units.

    Pros

    Very mature systems and lots of multifunctional support.

    Cons

    If not tenured you can be laidoff quickly when business shifts occur.

    Advice to Management

    Don't react to short term indices so quickly. It only hurts the employees and can ruin careers.
