    Takes care of interns, lots of great reasons to intern here. Work was good, especially if you know what you want to do. Everyone is working to make sure you have opportunities.

    Large onboarding requirements are daunting

    I worked at Plexus full-time

    Pros

    This company is a great introduction to the corperatation and how they run a buisness. And they will give you the opportunity to develop, give you a good base on knowledge if you try. Best yet getting in the door is easy.

    Cons

    The turnover is hign, the work itself is repetitive. You really do become little more than a replacable cog in the manufacturing process. Over time one feels less and less appreciated, or individualistic. Internal Movement is limited and clicky.

    Advice to Management

    Allow individuals the oppertunity to cross train more frequently. Put more effort into employee development and help remove education barriors. Internal Apprenticeship options would be helpful in this process. The education repayment option is great but really it is such a basic construct these days that your no longer leading the market in employee development.

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

    Pros

    Plexus has a lot of very qualified people working here, and is a great environment. There is a focus on continuous learning and opportunities for career advancement if someone is willing to work hard and continually grow. (As a global company, even opportunities in different cities and countries.) They have a strong program for technical training and leadership development. The Chicago environment is especially diverse, friendly, and open-minded.

    Cons

    As with any large company, there are people and problems that you need to work through and some (but limited) politics at the corporate office. Not a "perfect" company by any means - but a great group of people, growing and expanding, ad willing to address areas that need to be addressed.

    They pay skilled workers as if they don't have any skills. Lots of overtime when they tell you that you will have a more time to spend with your family.
