    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Sanmina full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Always felt as though we were a team. Great benefits and pay. Stressful at times, however, for the most part - your hard work was always appreciated by upper management.

    Cons

    Due to line of work (MANUFACTURING), random lay-offs would occur because of lack of available work. At times, you were unsure if you would loose your job due to this.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for all the years! You were all great.

    I have been working at Sanmina full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    if you work very hard for it, you can move up, but it is very slow. some groups work as a team, others one person does all the work while the rest of the group gets credit. Good groundwork for some of the programs, but execution is lacking.

    Cons

    in other areas it is hard to advance unless you know the right person if you do a job even once, you will do it indefinitely too much gossip and drama allowed consistently see people moved into positions they don't have the skill or aptitude for simply because they know someone have witnessed several times where one person does the work and another gets the credit. management favorites bragging to others that they...

    I worked at Sanmina full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are lucky you get to work with some good people in your team. I was able to build good relationships with coworkers but that’s about it.

    Cons

    The profit in electronic manufacturing is very lean, company hires desperate people with below market pay. Very high turn over, good quality people only uses it as a steppingstone. Many people have been with the company for several years and received no raises. It is a company unwritten policy that no annual raise will be given. Your performance review is just a piece of trash that nobody really cares. Very expensive...
