    Pros

    They have a cafeteria. If you started with a launch, you would have great input into the solution.

    Cons

    Management has changed from our speedy successful launch to decreased sales, the rise in politics, and the fall of many good team members. It is almost like management flips a coin for a bid decision. They spent foolish amounts of money on things that were decided on in a split seconds but they will toss a devoted, experienced, responsible employee out of the building before you can fathom the stupidity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek leaders, team builders, and those that share ideas to make their team look good rather than promote their flaws, steal their ideas for your own, and destroy anyone who doesn't play to their fiddle, regardless of whether it will help the company or not. Don't hire any more politicians. Hire people who create, not steal. Hire people who inspire, not manage by fear, and last hire people who help the team produce results. If a team of 5 are winning every game, where do you get your logic from that tells you to eliminate one of them, preferably the one that cost us more. Begin to understand motives that managers have for poor choices like these. Investigate motives. Find out if the problem continues, then eliminate that team leader who is causing self destruction.

    Pros

    They are a large company that operates in many different countries, which can be good for the person who wants to move around.

    Cons

    Their large company mentality can make it hard for an aspiring person to network and work their way of the ladder to progress their career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at ways to bring your Sr. Management teams from each site into the mix of major & minor company initiatives and provide networking & training events that allow them to meet other Sr. level employees.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Provide benefits, tuition reimbursement, full-time hours and bonuses based on store performance.

    Cons

    No developmental growth even though thats what they use to promote the positions. Lack of communication from top to bottom even though grievances are shared from bottom to top they say they listen but they don't. Even with customers there is lack of communication so when they re given wrong info from the corporate store they end up at the DSC screaming demanding something that we don't even have.
