    Cons

    Sanmina don't pay the
     highest salaries or have the best benefit packages in the market. Sometimes, good resources leave the company because HR and managers takes too long to realize it's more cost effective to retain a good and already trained resource by providing them with market salary and good benefits. Other motivation factors, the company already provide.
