    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Work with some very good customers

    Cons

    When product has completed the NPI processes and production issues have been resolved product is moved to lower cost regions resulting in loss of jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front on the real business forecast. Don't let it be implied that there will be enough projects to keep everyone working.

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, lots of room for moving lateral or up

    Cons

    Overworked, poor work-life balance, thankless, treated expendable, and expected to move shifts during changes in the project demands on a short notice. Management talks about values but I don't see the practicing of the preaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you see personnel looking as if they are about to kill over, give them a day off without telling them to take vacation time. Pulling double shifts and never mentioning how thankful you are for having people who sacrifice their lives for a business is very disheartening. Appreciation goes a long way.
