Very poor company

Customer Service Technician (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than a year

ProsUsually flexible schedule
Exposure to new mobile devices.

ConsThe management of the the RTS division is pitiful. I often wondered just how these people got their jobs.

The new hire training was a joke. The on-site training was full of drama and personal intrigue. There is no support from mid or upper management. If you follow policy, you are wrong. If you do not follow policy, you are wrong.

The company mantra is "Assign blame at all costs but, don't actually fix a problem."

Don't hope for a promotion unless you are a buddy of the person doing the promoting.

Raises are non-existant. Management has no idea of how to motivate, reward, or inspire.

Advice to Senior ManagementAt this point I would say clean house and start over. The problems are rooted so deep I see little hope to improve with current leadership and culture.

Fortunately I am moving on and have been hired by a company that is always in the top ten companies to work for.

Good riddance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
