    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

    Flextronics is a great company to work for. They have a very good management staff. The benefits are great for regular employees. High tech manufacturing is challenging and interesting.

    Cons

    Most employees start out as contract employees. It usually takes a year or more to become a regular employee. Layoffs are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better strategic planning will result in fewer layoffs.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great hours and lots of learning. Big company with good benefits. Plenty of opportunity if willing to re-locate. No vacation black out dates.

    Cons

    Pay for managers not the best. In Florida is starts off at $38k per year with possibility of bonuses that you don't have full control of getting. Very unorganized and always having to complete tasks at the last minute because upper management waits too long to filter down information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get more organized and understand exactly what someone in the DSC has to deal with on a day to day basis.
