    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits (that suck)

    Cons

    They do not value their employees. There is no room for advancement. Their "leadership" team only responds to brown-nosing suck-ups. Your hard work will not be rewarded.......RUN!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone strokes your ego, doesn't mean they are good employee. Take a good look at the people that actually perform quality work and are loyal to your company. They are the ones keeping you afloat, not the brown-nosers!

    I worked at Flextronics as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Gaining skills and experience, that's about it.

    Cons

    There's a lot of negative things to say about this place, particularly, at this memphis location. The management is unprofessional. They like to point fingers and not trying to do the right thing and be fair with their employees. A lot of good people lost their jobs for others lack of caring for one another and one's selfishness. Communication from management is horrible, no one seems to know what's going on. You will likely get more help from a coworker than your supervisor. There's always something changing which don't benefit the employees much of anything. If you are going or planning to go to school, this place doesn't really support that. I've had plenty of headaches dealing with going to school and trying to keep my job, although, I was still working overtime, but it seems like it wasn't enough for them. You have few supervisors who would speak to you rudely, there are a few good ones. Don't count on getting roll over or a raise for the hard work you do. It's pretty much a buddy system there. For some people, only took them 6 months to get roll over. I've worked there for over 3 yrs, still at the same spot and many others been there longer than I have and still could not advance due to some Supervisors. They pick their favorites and let them wander around while others work hard and don't appreciate them, it's childish and unprofessional. I grew very impatient with that place while still trying to do my job, but it doesn't pay off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, do your company a favor. Hire someone for good management skills who treats their employees with respect and who appreciates one hard work instead of just thinking for themselves. .

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Provide benefits, tuition reimbursement, full-time hours and bonuses based on store performance.

    Cons

    No developmental growth even though thats what they use to promote the positions. Lack of communication from top to bottom even though grievances are shared from bottom to top they say they listen but they don't. Even with customers there is lack of communication so when they re given wrong info from the corporate store they end up at the DSC screaming demanding something that we don't even have.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Is a strong and financially solid company, it offers very good benefits to their workers
    with global presence. Has a very strong portfolio of clients and extensive generating many jobs

    Cons

    Still presents serious opportunities to improve satisfaction oriented customer mentality
    where their customer service department in Mexico is still far from reaching maturity and solid service mentality. There is still a room to improve.
    They have everything to do and succeed, they just need to believe and start. Also many of the Programs Managers not really know the contractual terms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct yours eyes and hands to a second level in Customer Service department in Mexico
    And not just follow numbers. The staff are Humans and not just a “numbers” on the payroll
    A happy staff will gives as a result a happy customers. Don’t just ask to the directors or general managers status on this. Go to the physical locations of the staff and ask them face to face with no managers and directors around and ensure by all means no labor consequences to their feedback.
    The care and management of staff cannot be seen as an expense or cost, must be seen as the most valuable investment, and capital of the company a situation that exposes the company and omissions may result in customer escalations
