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

    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.

    I worked at Plexus full-time

    Pros

    Good company to gain experience. Also lots of overtime to make up for the low pay.

    Cons

    Low pay and no room for advancement . Management does not appreciate good employees and there is constantly new employees being trained which leads to slowing down the process.

    I have been working at Plexus full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plexus has some of the hardest working, most caring and dedicating employees that you could ever ask to work with.

    Cons

    Management has been trying to downsize their workforce at all levels and is expecting their employees to manage more and more tasks to the point where it has become overwhelming and impossible to manage for many employees. It is not uncommon to hear the phrase daily "management just doesn't listen." I love being busy at work, but being so busy that you are going to work with a feeling of dread because you are so overwhelmed each day continuously is not okay.

    Advice to Management

    Start listen to your staff, you are going to keep losing people as you trying to over task them. The numbers don't work, something isn't working, and it is going to remain broken there and the ship is going to sink if you you figure it out and quick.

    I have been working at Plexus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. The benefits are okay. Usually the Group Leads are flexible if you need time off. Overall I've been therefor 10+ years.

    Cons

    Excessive overtime, but not every week. Sometimes you get overwhelmed with work and no help. Then when you get everything done upper management gets all the credit. Poor planning between customers and production.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the bottom line production people.

    I have been working at Plexus full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of passionate people I work with. The pay and benefits are fair, and there are promotion opportunities. Being a large company, there are plenty of new challenges to be involved with.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance, poor project management, disorganized documentation, limited sense of accomplishment at the end of the day

    Advice to Management

    The large amount of tribal knowledge will be very detrimental to the company once the 15+ year employees leave/retire. Invest in your new employees to fix the turnover problem.
