    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lean Hierarchy , so you get lot of visibility , scope of work increases , other than that nothing great , pathetic management , GBS is screwed up , this company thinks humans are machine and nothing else , 2 % margin company

    Cons

    No Clue where to start from , I am with finance , timings are horrible , people expect you to be in office for 10-15 hours even if works is complete , people are slow , unnecessary stress is created , its a sinking ship .

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people at grass root level

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

    Pros

    Working for Flex for benefits is great
    The actual job isn't hard
    Its the bad choices made in the location as far as policies and politics that will turn you off

    Cons

    Working 50 hour shifts and no real motivation outside of a paycheck to keep you going is a issue. Moving up the ladder is limited. Management needs to be on the floor to help with traffic for customers since this is mostly a customer service position.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with the customers and on the floor so you actually have a idea how things are for your employees. Stop taking employees personal time for granted. Employees don't get motivated by a boss, they are motivated by a leader. Good employees leave jobs because of bad management. Review the ranks

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

    Pros

    Benefits were average, good training, co-workers were awesome, good learning experience.

    Cons

    Management was horrible, they do not care about their employees, they are only looking after their backs. I was hired for a position requiring a skill set which they knew nothing about & basically they tried to get as much information out of me to get the job done, they had me writing proceedures & so forth, I was basically digging my own grave for a layoff. I saw the writing on the wall, so I merely gave them minimal information. Hopefully they will dig their own grave because most of the critical information they wanted I kept to myself. Also raises were minimal as I expected from reading this web site. I am assuming this company does not get it, the word gets around & no one will be looking for a job within this company knowing that the employees are being treated this way. Good luck Flex because I won't be going back, as well as all my friends & contacts that I have made aware of your actions. This company is heartless & do not care about their employees. I hope you don't waste your time with this employer, because that is what you will be doing....

    Advice to Management

    None what so ever !!! They never did listen & I don't think they ever will....

    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.

    Pros

    The fellow workers are dedicated, but taken advantage of with regards to pay, bonuses, overtime and nepotism.

    Cons

    Favoritism exudes within this site. Extreme good ole boy network. They work you to death with little pay, lots of responsibility and no recompense. Their attitude is 'we can replace you tomorrow if you don't like it. ' What else do you expect from a company created in Singapore but third world treatment of personnel.

    Advice to Management

    None that they would listen to.
