    Pros

    As a contract manufacturer industry, you will have experience with different automotive and industrial manufacturing sectors.
    Jabil provides professional growth within the industry.

    Cons

    Little time given for customer launches, not enough personnel is assassinated for new projects so one person should be doing the work of two...

    Advice to Management

    New BUC and BUMs do not have the correct experience and they are not unctional completely qualified to manage a cross f team, so it could be stressful...... So the advice is: please give them the correct management training/support, specially in Mexico

    Pros

    Large company with global presence and the ability to work on a wide breadth of interesting projects.

    Cons

    Bogged down by over-management stifling projects and creating a severe lack of autonomy. Most departments will never have knowledge of other projects happening within similar branches of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Level down the micro-management culture and increase recognition for strong work.

    Pros

    I have nothing to add here.
