    It's good place to startup, but don't hope for any future career

    Big corporation but small business mind

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefit is decent and working hours is flexible.

    ConsNot really organized. Upper management doesn't really communicate well with clients and has no business skills to run the whole projects. If you want to get some experience, it is ok place. However, not more than that. Flextronics is a manufacture company but trying to be innovative and trying to be a leader in the tech market.. However, at the end it is a manufacture company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should know how to run the business and give people more clear directions.

    Worst Management (Specially Quality)

    Assembler/Testing/Technician (Former Employee) Newmarket, ON

    ProsHelp full production line workers.

    ConsManagement never listen to the employees. when problem occurred, they blame it on the lower lever (Production line workers). Newmarket Flextronics Quality Team is the worst managed team in the company. They really have to fire the quality manager. Flextronics quality teams do not care about the quality until the rim come to inspection. They do not train employee well and when problem occurred, they blame it on the employee. Chair is one of the worst and many got back pain because of that and afraid to tell them due to the lay off. You have to suck up to the manager to get to promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI know you people are managers. At least once in a while listen to the production line employees (i.e, how to improve the quality). Engineering team or managers at least once a month come the production line to see what you can do to improve the production ( do not come to the production because RIM or any other customers going to come for inspection)

    An 'Ok' Kinda Place. Don't look for a career here...

    Senior Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) Ottawa, ON

    ProsGreat flexibility and benefits are pretty good. Small company attitude within a big company. From an employee point of view, most of the time it is fairly low stress.

    ConsPoor management direction and communications. Management is their own little clic and mostly former Nortel (you know how well they did). Small company attitude within a big company. Office environment matches the low cost philosophy of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEither throw away the big company attitude or embrace it. Don't leverage it when it appears to fit. Set a clear direction and go for it. Communicate openly with the employees.
