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

    Pros

    Flextronics offered a competitive salary package with quarterly profit sharing opportunities. The work environment was professional and executive management was very structured and business driven.

    Cons

    The benefits package was not something I would recommend. Company owned healthcare option, with high deductibles. If you're single, have no health issues, and enjoy working hard, this may be a good fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is the key to success; that and a profitable business model. Ensure your employees have the opportunity to succeed, and then give them the tools to do so.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    It's a job with alot of potential in the right position.

    Cons

    No advancement if your not part of a clique...good Ole boys club. Qualifications means nothing if you are not liked by management.

    Advice to Management

    Should have thought outside of the box, instead of holding your hand expecting corporate to spoon feed you.

    I have been working at Flextronics (More than a year)

    Pros

    My experience is that Flextronics offers great job flexibility and does not usually lead to micromanagement. You get job satisfaction if you give it your all and are willing to grab it.

    Cons

    For many reasons Flextronics has a very flat organization which does not lend itself to advancement. Low margins do also lead to "head scratcher" decisions by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Take to long view. Take to long view. Take to long view. Take to long view. Take to long view.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior Management is generally very supportive of front line employee's.
    Positive atmosphere among co-workers.
    Focus is entirely on support and not sales.
    Job security

    Cons

    Contractually at the mercy of the client. The client dictates and funds all aspects of business operations, which at times means working with your hands tied.

    The per store head count staffing model needs to be updated. Little to no flexibility when it comes down to employee turnover or employee's taking vacation or calling out sick - impacts work/life balance.

    Front line customer service reps are underpaid for work that is done.

    Advice to Management

    If it is possible, negotiate better with the client to improve store operations (device applications tools, staffing and pay)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to advance and get attention of other companies. You learn more at this job than any other I have ever had.

    Cons

    They grind you to the bone and expect more from you than is possible. Very cut throat industry and very political internally makes it difficult to get things accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to set realistic expectations and allow your employees to learn about aspects outside their job that enable them to be better at their job.
