    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent, the work is interesting, and the managers are generally capable. Most people take what they do seriously.

    Cons

    Depending on the job, you may have to travel a lot. There is politicking in higher management that you just have to live with. The work areas get shuffled and rearranged pretty regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Create an internal audit team to go around and audit each manufacturing site, create a short list of key process indicators, then periodically assess each site on these common KPIs.

    Good, hard working people who care.
    Salary are competitive.
    Some middle management are transparent and try hard to share information down to employees.

    I worked at Flextronics (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits , 401k match, get to meet a lot of different people. This was probably the best benefit of all. I met all types of people that were friendly and willing to share their knowledge on everything from starting a business to getting grants to fixing on your house to real estate etc etc

    Cons

    Work life balance
    Contracted accout so they fold on everything the client wanted wheather it made sense or not. Have to relocate to advance in most cases with no relocation assistance. Dealing with disgruntled customers daily. Understaffed, over worked. Like many companies now they want you to do more with less. Somewhat unstable depending on the market you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Dont let your clients bully you into everything. Grow some balls and negotiate fair terms.

  8. "Customer service tech"

    Pros

    Lots of hours, good people to work with, management needs improvement, can be a fun place to work, if you love hard work and low pay this is the best place for you. Temps outnumber regular employees and conversion of temps can take a few years. Benefits are expensive but decent. Decent on site cafe.

    Cons

    No way to plan for family, or weekends, lots of lay offs, more than a few bits of nepotism going on. Management care little for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers what they are worth, and recognize the contributions that they put forth with decent wages.p
