Flextronics is a top tier EMS provider to work for

Not a bad place to work.

IT Applications Support (Current Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

I have been working at Flextronics part-time for more than 10 years

ProsPeople here are genuinely nice and willing to help in any way possible. Many opportunities to grow, if you ask.

ConsCompensations is a bit low, no fault to the company. HR tries to get its "bang for the buck"

Advice to Senior ManagementWould be nice if they offered more opportunities for employee growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

This will give you ALOT of overtime.

QA Technician (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics as a contractor for less than a year

ProsPeople are nice (My boss and co-workers are awesome!)
Work for the most part is very easy.

ConsWorking 7 days a week (Every other weekend we get off)
Pay is not great
Your working 9-10 hours a day.
your breaks a really short
you always standing ( on concrete, so your legs WILL HURT!)
Rules are EXTREAMLY strict
The recruiter\traning people will tell you highly inaccurate information so you will take the job
( and they do it because they take money from your paycheck for recuting you until you are no longer a contractor)

Advice to Senior ManagementGive longer breaks, and maybe invest in some more chairs, and people so we dont have to work over time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good plans, bad execution

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Flextronics full-time

ProsGood lower level mgmt, good opportunity to learn how things are really built.

Conswork life balance, very hierarchical, no job training very bad for first job, no career path, no vision, attention to detail on meaningless things

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate an innovating/creative environment by putting your employees in positions to succeded rather then having high expectations without clear understanding or tools to fulfull those expectations.

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

A company managed by the Financial Team

Vice President - Senior Level (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA (US)

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

ProsThis is a company that provides multiple opportunities for aggressive hard working people to advance to the Director/Sr. Director levels

ConsThere is little to no focus on the customer.....never have I been at any company where the most senior of management conspires to "Get one over" on the customer......the least customer focused company in the NASDAQ 100 IMHO.

Almost all of the Senior management (VP and above) comes from outside the company

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that your customers are the foundation of the company....not the bean counters

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
