    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Either 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.

    Pros

    I cannot describe the best reasons however you can meet good people there

    Cons

    EMS mentality and culture doesn't encourage professional and personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think out of the box, look.... there are many smart people around who can recognize and make a difference between a strategy without future and a future without a strategy

    Senior Engineer position at Flextronics

    I worked at Flextronics

    Pros

    Typical flex time environment. If you enjoy engaging with various customers, then this is the company for you. Leveraging understanding of operations, design, and manufacturing can be a potential to this organization as all of these are core competencies.

    Cons

    Old company mentality with very little new blood. A lot of this mentality is due to recent acquisition of similar firms: Nortel and Solectron. The company focus is to typically acquire companies with potential technology. There may be room to change positions, but the company operates as a small company under the umbrella of a larger organization. There is very little cross-functionality between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In short the greatest change that Flextronics could do is invest in their own company as oppose to acquiring new technologies through M&A procedures. There is very little R&D opportunities in this organization which is a hinderance to attracting innovative talent.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, internal education and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Hard to get raises and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for the managers to tell their workers thank you more. It would be nice to get raises and promotions and have separate vacation leave and sick time leave instead of one big pot of PTO. . .nice to not worry about losing your job if you are sick a lot. Needs better work/life balance for certain departments/positions.
