    Current Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Sorocaba, São Paulo (Brazil)

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I got an intensive experience, I could understand and follow the company's politics effectively. My direct managers had a very wide experiences, thus I could learn and develop a lot.
    I had crucial opportunities of growth, I was promoted once a year and could have experience in several departments of the company.

    Cons

    The workload is really heavy, for a period I had about 60hs of overtime monthly (beyond the normal 45hs weekly). Some people get really stressed due the pressure for results (this made me mature a lot and learn how to deal with it, but some people get really bad for that, even sick).
    The food they offered in the company's restaurant was really bad, many people (including myself) brought food from home - some days it was impossible to eat the food offered.
    The food was a huge problem for me, I spent a lot of money eating out or a lot of work bringing food from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would be happy to pay a little more for the food benefit if they could improve the food quality, as I stated in the Cons, it was a huge problem for me.

    Pros

    Great company, people want to perform and do well for their direct reports. Team synergy is fantastic. Great flexibility when it comes to being able to telecommute

    Cons

    Client managed and senior management did not make the right business decisions when it came to who need to be kept when re-alignment was done. disappointed as it was just a friends thing and not who was doing the best. Sad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to ensure senior leadership is making decisions based on the business not on who they like.

    Pros

    Best place for freshers and people who can be patient to gain the benefit. Salary could be less initially but once performance is proven, the recognition will be taken care. Greater visibility and wide avenues for learning. Work life balance definitely possible.

    Cons

    Nothing in specific to mention....
