    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    No Pros, none at all

    Cons

    Too many to list, level of corruption is widespread. Managers sleeping at their desks is tolerated by other managers to cover each other. 2 people work under most managers. Sad waste of company funds. HR is complacent. Too many managers and no work.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to flush the toilet and get rid of the managers at the Austin Site. They are all corrupt. From HR on down.

    I worked at Flextronics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Diverse, fast paced,enjoyable, friendly environment. The day goes by relatively quick assuming everything is running properly. The company does dinners and other special incentives based upon performance. The management are all hands on and willing to help and help with work most work related concerns.

    Cons

    We worked 6 day work weeks, sometimes that interfered with personal business with Sunday being the only day off. Most of the guys in shipping & maintenance think they are an individual company, and will rarely work with valve workers even when requested. Made it very difficult to complete certain tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Get shipping, maintenance and valve workers to communicate better as a team for the good of the company.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed my coworkers and the facilities were nice, but the location I worked at has since been closed down for lack of profit.

    Cons

    management failed to provide incentive for their staff resulting in a high turnover of quality employees. Improved management would improve workflow.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you care! Rewards, benefits, or incentive programs will help to diminish the high turnover. Get With It!

    i was singled out by the security guard and i freaked out and left and i would like another chance to prove myself more. There are several people who can verify what i have said and tell of my work ethics

    Pros

    Flex is a large company focused on educating its employees. Training is mandatory, but easy to fallow at your own pace.

    Cons

    The automotive industry is inherently fast paced, some people work well in a fast paced environment, others do not. Expect to work weekends and some holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to keep your employees motivated. Give them the same level of respect that you expect in return. Build a culture of happiness , positive attitudes, and pride in ones work.
