    Pros

    Some great managers
    Great ethical company

    Cons

    Medical, dental, and vision benefits are subpar and costly
    This company does not support telecommuting

    Advice to Management

    To attract and retain great talent - reconsider how much employees have to pay for medical deductibles and your policy on telecommuting for non-manufacturing workers.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great high volume manufacturing company with lots of vertical integration. multi faceted with many BU and differentiated markets to balance the portfolio. good diversification. smart leadership

    Cons

    work life balance is not considered. political. lots of passing the buck, segment ops ownership Vs global ops ownership. low volume manufacturing know how is challenged, lots of waste, good at high volume, low and complex is challenged. wastes a lot of money on experiments. Horrible costing and ABC accounting. Too much allocation.

    Advice to Management

    consolidate operations based on business requirements or product attributes, too much of mixing of manufacturing methodologies. The staff understands continuous flow high volume, struggles with high mix. lot of learning pains.
