    Exposed to new technologies and leading companies in various sectors of industry.

    I have been working at Sanmina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice co-workers, good parking, location is ok, clean bathrooms.

    Cons

    No accountability, no training, every department has major issues that could be fixed but will take months. No team work and everyone wants to cya. It is obvious the lack of team work is trickling down from upper management. Suppliers keep putting location on cedit hold because receiving does not receive everything in. This location has no idea what inventory they have or dont have. Customers get promised dates yet they cant be completed. Shocked location has not shut down with the way things don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep quality people. Show team work and stop making the same mistakes over and over again.
