Learned a lot. Good company, world-wide reach, they have it figured out.

ProsManagement is very helpful. Benefits are okay. Was able to work from home when necessary.

ConsPay is not great for new employees. Difficult to get things done because of lack of personnel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not good for long term...

Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

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

ProsIt is a good place to get your teeth cut. You'll be exposed to a lot of different projects depending on your work and your section (there are many divisions in Flextronics).

I had the opportunity to work with very good co-workers and experienced engineers.

ConsIt is a very demanding environment and you may be required to work extra hours. This may become the norm if you have several projects in the pipeline.

People getting laid off is not unusual and constant re-organization is the norm. You just don't focus on it otherwise you'd get really dizzy.

 I don't think it is a company that is good for any long term plans.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

Great company but falling apart slowly

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chennai (India)

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

ProsExcellent exposure of how the organization works. New challenges keep you in the mood to go for more and stay hungry. Revision in compensation to match market standards.
Measurable goals and achievable targets.

ConsData oriented leadership and quite Weak for few support functions diluting the primary objective and resulting in extremely shabby decisions.
Compensation is inconsistent across similar levels
High on cost consciousness and nothing wrong about it until it starts to hurt the morale of the employees (Ground level, who contribute towards the operations)
Culture needs to be infused across all levels

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

Big corporation but small business mind

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsBenefit is decent and working hours is flexible.

ConsNot really organized. Upper management doesn't really communicate well with clients and has no business skills to run the whole projects. If you want to get some experience, it is ok place. However, not more than that. Flextronics is a manufacture company but trying to be innovative and trying to be a leader in the tech market.. However, at the end it is a manufacture company.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should know how to run the business and give people more clear directions.

GREAT PLACE TO WORK FOR

Customer Service Technician (Current Employee)
West Hollywood, CA (US)

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

ProsGood pay and good experience. Hours weren't that bad. OK management. Customer service is definitely a must at this job. Don't expect to never be busy, but makes the day go by fast. Good area to work around as well.

ConsManagement is made to where you don't get weekends off at all. The loyal employees are overlooked when it comes to promotions. Sometimes management acts to where you expendable.
