    I have been working at Celestica full-time

    Pros

    Celestica builds products for many of the world's leading technology companies so you will get a lot of exposure to different best practices.

    Cons

    No growth in an industry with very tight profit margins so they are always cutting staff and are no longer investing for the future. Just trying to live through another day. Problems with strategy execution. Very conservative. 80% of manufacturing in Asia so on the phone all evening most days of the week.
