    Pros

    Nice co-workers, internal education and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Hard to get raises and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for the managers to tell their workers thank you more. It would be nice to get raises and promotions and have separate vacation leave and sick time leave instead of one big pot of PTO. . .nice to not worry about losing your job if you are sick a lot. Needs better work/life balance for certain departments/positions.

    Cons

    Managers needs to be supportive.you might be switched to different process and teams frequently.salary is very less for fresher's even though its a MNC and is the main reason many are thinking of job shift.some teams might have very less opportunity to learn

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give broad exposures to employees since many Dnt Hve idea of what is the nature of work they are doing and what kind of opportunities they are having beyond this company and where they have to improve themselves.

    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.
