    Pros

    I really can't think of anything positive about this company.

    Cons

    Horrible working conditions, poor management, poor pay, unrealistic expectations. Employees always get blamed for everything by management. You always feel like your job is not secure.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat and pay your employees better so that you won't have such a high turnover rate.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is okay, and you get 3 weeks of vacation after the first year.

    Cons

    The company does not care about their employees, you work long days and are not very well appreciated. The management team is rude and can not be trusted, I would not recommend working at the Kentucky location.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees with more respect.

    Pros

    The Pros were the executives were the only people who received stock options and all they did was sell them left and right. Look for yourself.

    Cons

    The company is so big nobody can make a decision about anything. They have SLAs for IT requests but nobody really cares or completes stuff on time.

    14 day SLA to get a VPN account created???

    Funny how the execs had Starbucks coffee and everyone else had some bad tasting "stuff"
    The execs also got free lunches in the on site cafeteria. while everyone else had to pay.

    Advice to Management

    Share a bit with the employees.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons for working for Flextronics is that it is better than not having a job.

    Cons

    The cons would be having to go to work each day.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will help them.

    I worked at Flextronics (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was able to keep my job during a difficult time. I survived a layoff where 40% of the plant was laid off.
    My pay was reduced 20% and it never recovered.

    Cons

    There are too many negatives to discuss.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Solectron prior to my experience at Flex. Solectron was much more focused on doing the job correctly. Management at Flex needs to get involved. The approach is too hands off.

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits (that suck)

    Cons

    They do not value their employees. There is no room for advancement. Their "leadership" team only responds to brown-nosing suck-ups. Your hard work will not be rewarded.......RUN!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone strokes your ego, doesn't mean they are good employee. Take a good look at the people that actually perform quality work and are loyal to your company. They are the ones keeping you afloat, not the brown-nosers!

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Their companies values only apply when it benefits the company and the leadership is very poor. I found no pros working for Flextronics, too bad really. I went to work for Flextronics thinking I was making a solid career change to find about the supervisor disrespected women in the position I was hired in. I was underminded me in front of co-workers over and over. I went to the manager several times and nothing was done. The work center was a Hostile working environment.

    Cons

    Only con was a free health screening. The health insurance plan was horrible. The health insurance is a HSA just horrible. Dental Plan was good though. I worked 6 days a week for two years to get a new product to market to be re-paid back by laying me off, my husband and 1,100 other people once the project was completed. I will never work for Flextronics in my career again nor do I recommend it to anyone. The pay is also very low if you do not have a degree such as I an my husband did. Most people were only getting paid $10 hr and when converted up to $10.50 hour.

    Advice to Management

    Try hiring less managers that do not have any people skills and Supervisors that discriminate against women. Do not over hire employees for projects then lay off 1,100 people once the project is completed. Flextronics brought jobs to Austin sure enough but then laid all those people off a year and half to two years later !
