    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and nice building.

    Cons

    Low job security! They don't think twice about letting you go, even if you're doing a great job and are getting good reviews. In one word, heartless. Security is a nightmare to deal with!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overpaid and underworked!

    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!

    Former Employee - Computer Tech in Memphis, TN (US)

    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

    Pros

    Great opportunity for those willing to take initiative
    Fast paced environment with little tolerance for bureaucracy
    Good people culture without inter division politics that I have seen at similar sized companies

    Cons

    Operations focus often leads to tactical, 'low risk and low rewards' near term decisions
    Senior management are starting to adopt a more strategic approach but may take time for rank and file to change behaviors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think like a product company and feel free to be open to more ideas and taking some risks
