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

    Pros

    The employees are good caring people that work hard. After 10 years can have 5 weeks of vacation to use. If you are not in production your hours can be flexible.

    Cons

    Last minute changes when management decides to work weekend. This site does not promote from within. All movement tends to be lateral. Bonuses that use to be a selling point for the lower pay are not on par. It's manufacturing and they work production hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company says it likes to develop and promote from within. Maybe that policy should be better implemented.

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

    Pros

    Immediate management was minimally intrusive. Flexible work hours, can work from home if moderately ill. Work is not hard

    Cons

    Constant unpredictable lay offs. No career development or progression path. No processes, everything done in ad hoc my hair is on fire"" environment. Gutted the health plan and then the corporation decided to pay 27 times instead of 26 times a year resulting in smaller paychecks . Lying to customers and suppliers are de facto operating procedures.

    Good training on concepts
    Friendly Team environment
    Challenging job

    Cons

    Below market average Pay & 90 days notice period

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out many hierarchies in managing workforce it just promotes bureaucracy
    Organize strict skip-level manger meetings and with HRs at-least half yearly
    Provide growth opportunities to employees rather providing referrals benifits

    Managers are not aware of people issues on the floor and don't care about employees.

    Pros

    Floor workers get great support from the engineering technicians.

    Cons

    Management more worried about quantity than quality. Product going out the door is very low quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on board and understand the reasons for poorest quality in the industry. Get more competent quality engineers and quality management personnel.

    Pros

    Company has decent compensation, very engrossed in establishing and maintaining process disciplines for repeatable outcome. Global footprint allows for intercompany movement if desired.

    Cons

    Because of the adopted, "doing more with less" culture, one must be willing to cross discipline boundaries to get the job done...high stress at times...

    I worked at Flextronics

    Pros

    The company has an incredibly large portfolio of products being designed, manufactured, tested and delivered for diverse OEMs using state-of-the-art top notch technology across the globe. Flex is one of the biggest players in the EMS industry and throughout the years has increasingly developing a good structure. For a hardworking millenial who loves what he/she does and wants to learn the EMS business this company is the place to be.

    Cons

    At the plant level employees often have to spend countless hours at work to get the things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is the key.
