GREAT PLACE TO WORK FOR

Customer Service Technician (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood pay and good experience. Hours weren't that bad. OK management. Customer service is definitely a must at this job. Don't expect to never be busy, but makes the day go by fast. Good area to work around as well.

ConsManagement is made to where you don't get weekends off at all. The loyal employees are overlooked when it comes to promotions. Sometimes management acts to where you expendable.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees better, especially the loyal ones.

10 years in electronics

Quality Supervisor (Former Employee)
Budapest, MO (US)

I worked at Flextronics full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou are never bored. Good performance resulting in promotions. Management is open for suggestions. Training opportunities available.

ConsIf you are not in the "inner circle" you can easily be the first to be fired during a headcount cut independently of your performance, this is mainly relevant at leader levels. In case of an average employee it is based on real performance. Working environment is not always good in all offices.

Advice to Senior ManagementLessons learned never identified from business fails. No real benchmark why no more business can be reached.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
