    I worked at Flextronics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Training given are quite compact and useful. Trainee can use the machine in quality department and work around the company without much restriction. Many learning opportunities in this company if you are wiling to explore by yourself.

    Cons

    The allowance given is too little. Not enough to cover transportation and expenses. Workload for engineers seems like too much. Turnover rate high.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse and interesting. Job involved a lot of travel to neat places. Must have great intercommunication skills. Interacted with great people from around the world.

    Cons

    Can get laid off at any time. I never saw it coming. They had to make room for another higher level director. So even though you add a lot of value and do a great job you can get laid off at any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not lay off experienced employees. A lot of knowledge leaves the company.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Simulates a good corporation with the potential for advancement. If you treat it like a temporary job, you can get about a year out of them.

    Cons

    Leadership culture is to protect their positions at all costs. They do not care an ounce about helping anyone advance within the company unless it benefits them personally. Relocated families and hired talented people, used them to launch the MacPro, then cut them to show quarterly savings. Invested in uniforms for 800 employees then downsized to 200 to cut costs. Meanwhile, 600 people took their uniforms home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose leaders who actually lead, have social skills, and retain talent. Do not choose leaders who fire talent to secure their own positions and empower the weak knowing they have years until they become a threat. Promote a culture of brains not a culture of monkeys. Penalize those who maliciously secure their own existence and job security unless it is you who is guilty of it which is probably why it exists.

    Pros

    I could get on the Flextronics University website and take all different classes in almost any field there is to think of. I can further my career and move up and since it is a worldwide company you learn a lot more stuff here than you would in just a one country company.

    Cons

    Sometimes there isn't a lot of work, since I was working in Flextronics, but for Aerotek I got laid off. I really loved this company and all it had. Its a shame I didn't get to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire me back. I am a really hard worker and want to move up in my career. MaryAlice Cancino
