Current Employee - Senior Director, Business Development in San Jose, CA (US)

I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Tremendous amount of opportunity to learn about customer needs, large scale operation and business process discipline. There is no shortage of excitement because there is always something new that's happening.

Cons

Over the years the company has became overly bureaucratic, self centered and unwilling or unable to implement real changes. Despite the increases in internal communication, the top executives are increasingly more distanced from the real world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) The company needs to quickly evolve beyond its eroding EMS business model. 2) Need to learn how to navigate in the unfamiliar emerging markets. 3) Culture is what we practice, not something we say.

    Pros

    Peer level people are always willing to help

    Cons

    Absolutely horrifying, arrogant and pathetic management. They will "kill" you just to save a few nickels. Do not take this job, it is a nightmare. If you take it expect to work 24 hrs a day. You will report to one guy and you will take contradictory instructions from another guy. I am surprised that this "huge" company even manages to make 1% profit!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some VP's in this company think they are God and everybody else is their "slaves" Most of the higher ups in this company lack people skills. Almost everyone in this company is either a VP or a Director. There is hardly ANY middle management.

    Pros

    Salary is decent for what you do, but recent changes put your daily tasks on par with a COR sales store and the pay is not cimparable.

    Cons

    Inability to weed out underperforming team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont worry so much about the HR side of letting underperforms go. Keeping them only hinders the moral of the store.
