    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was into SCM. Well defined process & practically has helped many employees excel in various companies once they are out of Flex. You can learn a lot!!!

    Cons

    Preferential treatment by the Management. Salary is very much less compared to industry standards, Extremely hard & smart workers are back stabbed & neglected whereas the Managers reap benefit for there subordinates efforts which is not fair

    Advice to Management

    Run a practical assessment regards to the people managers process knowledge, you will be surprised. Not many can survive out once they leave Flex. To be frank if Flex package was good. deserving employees efforts taken into consideration & Managers were not partial, then Flex is surely heaven to work. But......if only...
