Good for learning as a beginner.

IT Security Analyst (Current Employee)
Timişoara (Romania)

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

ProsAccess to new technologies, professional capable people, good working environment.

ConsNot open to salary raise or to sponsor training. All shared services were migrated to India or Mexico and the quality and professionalism of people are low.
Management year by year are doing promises they do not keep.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop moving the services to India. A lot of professional people will leave Flex because of this decision.

Nice company

Test Engineer Tech (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics as a contractor

ProsHad some of the best co-workers I've ever had here. Everyone was great, we laughed and joked around a lot all while getting our work done.

ConsThe hours are TERRIBLE. You'll work 7 days a week literally for about a month straight, and then other weeks you'll most likely work around 6 days a week. The work-life balance is extremely difficult. I'm still single, so I can't imagine what it's been like for those that are married and that have children.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you don't think someone will be converted from a contract employee to a full-time employee, then just tell them. Don't lead them on for months.

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