    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been able to travel around the world and spend months in exotic locations I would never have otherwise visited. There's a high mix of customers each with their own benefits and challenges. Rarely are two days ever the same.

    Cons

    The compensation is awful. I didn't realize just how bad it was until I started looking outside. We'll get a 2% raise in the summer and we're told we're lucky to get it. They then jack up our insurance premiums, erasing the raise and then some.

    The mantra is do more more more with less less less to the point we're paralyzed. Nothing gets done because we don't have enough people to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Yelling at your supervisors and engineers for not getting work done isn't a solution. We're all working as hard as we can. Consider hiring more people and paying your key contributors what they're worth. We're in a downward spiral where people leave, you work us harder, threaten us with our jobs, which just causes more people to leave.
