    I worked at Flextronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Is a strong and financially solid company, it offers very good benefits to their workers
    with global presence. Has a very strong portfolio of clients and extensive generating many jobs

    Cons

    Still presents serious opportunities to improve satisfaction oriented customer mentality
    where their customer service department in Mexico is still far from reaching maturity and solid service mentality. There is still a room to improve.
    They have everything to do and succeed, they just need to believe and start. Also many of the Programs Managers not really know the contractual terms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct yours eyes and hands to a second level in Customer Service department in Mexico
    And not just follow numbers. The staff are Humans and not just a “numbers” on the payroll
    A happy staff will gives as a result a happy customers. Don’t just ask to the directors or general managers status on this. Go to the physical locations of the staff and ask them face to face with no managers and directors around and ensure by all means no labor consequences to their feedback.
    The care and management of staff cannot be seen as an expense or cost, must be seen as the most valuable investment, and capital of the company a situation that exposes the company and omissions may result in customer escalations

    I worked at Flextronics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Compensation Package, Competent Leaders

    Cons

    They will use you to the point of abuse, and when they are done, drop you. While the compensation package is good, they will tell you one thing about schedule and the future, and know this, even as an associate you will work 60+ hours a week; NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU. Get what you can for certifications and leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember when companies react, employees that worked hard suffer.

    I worked at Flextronics as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Very competitive salary and as much overtime as you can handle.

    Cons

    When times are lean and overtime is a bad word then it is time to update your resume. When the axe comes down it is swift and painless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the qualified talent and not just the "yes" people and there will be less of a let down in production when layoffs are neccessary.
