      I have been working at Plexus full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Dress for your day Flexible hours People are easy to talk to The work is always different

      Cons

      Not competive in pay, some jobs pay almost $10k less than industry average for the area. If you ask for an increase, you will swiftly be denied. This also means it takes forever to fill roles due to the non-competitive pay. Managers don't seem to listen to needs when we need to increase head count to avoid getting behind on work. It gets done, but at the cost of more stress. Takes a long, long time to get promoted....

      Advice to Management

      Start getting competitive in pay again. Don't shy away from increasing head count. You get what you pay for.
