This will give you ALOT of overtime.

QA Technician (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics as a contractor for less than a year

ProsPeople are nice (My boss and co-workers are awesome!)
Work for the most part is very easy.

ConsWorking 7 days a week (Every other weekend we get off)
Pay is not great
Your working 9-10 hours a day.
your breaks a really short
you always standing ( on concrete, so your legs WILL HURT!)
Rules are EXTREAMLY strict
The recruiter\traning people will tell you highly inaccurate information so you will take the job
( and they do it because they take money from your paycheck for recuting you until you are no longer a contractor)

Advice to Senior ManagementGive longer breaks, and maybe invest in some more chairs, and people so we dont have to work over time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Strong Opportunity for growth

Director of Operations (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

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

ProsFlextronics allows those with go-getter styles to quickly move up within the organization. The work environment is one where new ideas are promoted and recognized when they add value to the business.

ConsThe size of the organization makes it difficult to leverage consistent practices. There are challenges in working through the various areas of the business to get things done quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on best practices and standarization to help customers to not be surprised when building programs in various sites/business segments.
