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

    Pros

    Flex is one of if not the largest contract manufacturing company in the world. The company takes great pride in its employees. The benefit package is very good, and the salary is competitive. Because the company is so large and varied it is possible to move to different positions without having to leave the company.

    Management is proactive and I believe they are incentivized to promote their staff members to higher positions.

    Cons

    The primary con, is that the company is so large that sometimes you can get lost and forgotten about. It is hard to make a name for yourself or to get your accomplishments recognized by the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get so caught up in your own career advancement that you forget the members of your team. The environment is very challenging and sometimes managers get caught up in "winning" the game and lose sight of the people that are working for them.
