    To attract and retain great talent - reconsider how much employees have to pay for medical deductibles and your policy on telecommuting for non-manufacturing workers.

    Take a lot of time in keying in and maintaining planview system

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been able to travel around the world and spend months in exotic locations I would never have otherwise visited. There's a high mix of customers each with their own benefits and challenges. Rarely are two days ever the same.

    Cons

    The compensation is awful. I didn't realize just how bad it was until I started looking outside. We'll get a 2% raise in the summer and we're told we're lucky to get it. They then jack up our insurance premiums, erasing the raise and then some.

    The mantra is do more more more with less less less to the point we're paralyzed. Nothing gets done because we don't have enough people to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Yelling at your supervisors and engineers for not getting work done isn't a solution. We're all working as hard as we can. Consider hiring more people and paying your key contributors what they're worth. We're in a downward spiral where people leave, you work us harder, threaten us with our jobs, which just causes more people to leave.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    1. Work life balance is good
    2. It is the most stable company in market, they are running continously on 5 percent profits
    3. Your career gets escalated nicely, after period of time there are promotions
    4. Good pay compare to other manufacturing

    Cons

    1. Pay not at par with the IT companies
    2. Very monotonous job profile
    3. There is less learning
    4. Very less on site opportunities
    5. New ideas are hardly considered

    Advice to Management

    They can introduce more stratergies for freshers in India, like graduate management programme. Where freshers get to work in all disciplines and know how business operates.
    All the salary should be revised on par with the currnt market scenario
