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

    Pros

    Collegial atmosphere and not a super demanding job. Nice new manufacturing facility in Neenah.

    Cons

    Where are the women? I had no role models as there are only a handful of women in high positions.

    Advice to Management

    Look to hire a diverse workforce. Seek out different people with different backgrounds, it will pay off.

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

    Pros

    Great people, opportunities for growth in employment, encouraging management style.
    leads work right alongside employees, makes for an equal work load and appreciation for hard working co-workers.

    Cons

    hours not guaranteed, when business is slow or product not flowing, hours are voluntarily reduced. Mandatory overtime for some, but not all employees seems unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back bonuses for regular employees, even $500.00 around Christmas would boost employee moral immensely, and it would not hurt the company's bottom-line one bit.

    I worked at Plexus (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for cross training, good benefits. Grew a lot in my time with the company. Was able to move up multiple positions. Always something to learn. Very lean/CI oriented.

    Cons

    Work/life balance. Too much OT to keep up spirits of staff without burning them out. Hard to keep entry level employees when they are paid so little to do skilled positions.

    Advice to Management

    I know there was a raise to minimum pay of entry level employees, but consider raising it again. Considering the end user for the products, the skill levels are due the appropriate pay.

    Pros

    The people at Plexus, make Plexus.

    Cons

    Implementation-of-the-week management culture. Upper management spends too much time preaching/lecturing to the boots on the ground, and far too little listening to them. Middle and lower management seem to find it difficult to communicate interactively, as well.
    The pay is substandard. Diversity is fine, as long as it conforms exactly to their way of thinking. We continue to hemorrhage the good people, as they leave for less frustrating, better paying opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Try a little critical pathing during the planning process. Quit running us into the fire, and *then* thinking about getting burned.
    Measure twice, cut once. It works.

    Pros

    Many growth opportunities for those who are willing to put in the effort

    Cons

    There tends to be too many competing strategies which consume resources from what they often should be focused on

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your emplyees
