    I worked at Sanmina full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Toughen a person up to deal with high pressure, challenging demands and bearing with pushy insultive colleagues. If you stay long enough to accumulate your know-how, promotion chances are there. High turn over also mean chance to get promoted to fill gaps. There is quarterly bonus if company makes money.

    Cons

    Very stressful, high staff turnover, heavy workloads, wage freezes, plant shutdowns not uncommon. Pioneer batch working their way up are one of those who makes life even more miserable (think verbal abuse). Be prepared to deal with pushy denanding colleagues talk loudly at you in office everyday.

    Advice to Management

    HQ should work harder on strategy in getting better customers and better contracts so that regional plants are not always being at the mercy of customer's poor planning, resulting in bad inventory situations and cash flow problem.
