    I worked at Flextronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses, good management, friendly co-workers, good pay, provides raises, some flexibility with personal schedule. Perks like on site cafeteria and coffee bar. Time off was adequate and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    HVAC system and building need updated. Not really on board with telecommuting. Team initiatives was not a strong point, and options for growth were limited. Training was sporadic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back ability to telecommute for those with kids.
