    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Their companies values only apply when it benefits the company and the leadership is very poor. I found no pros working for Flextronics, too bad really. I went to work for Flextronics thinking I was making a solid career change to find about the supervisor disrespected women in the position I was hired in. I was underminded me in front of co-workers over and over. I went to the manager several times and nothing was done. The work center was a Hostile working environment.

    Cons

    Only con was a free health screening. The health insurance plan was horrible. The health insurance is a HSA just horrible. Dental Plan was good though. I worked 6 days a week for two years to get a new product to market to be re-paid back by laying me off, my husband and 1,100 other people once the project was completed. I will never work for Flextronics in my career again nor do I recommend it to anyone. The pay is also very low if you do not have a degree such as I an my husband did. Most people were only getting paid $10 hr and when converted up to $10.50 hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hiring less managers that do not have any people skills and Supervisors that discriminate against women. Do not over hire employees for projects then lay off 1,100 people once the project is completed. Flextronics brought jobs to Austin sure enough but then laid all those people off a year and half to two years later !

    company doesn't value employees, HR doesn't care, the work schedule is never flexible and forbid to accommodate school schedule. you will not move up in the ladder. i have yet seen or witnessed anyone get promoted while I have been there.

    Pros

    Decent pay, constantly learning things about technology, scheduling was ok, but retail hours. Usually able to get time off that is requested. Insurance plans were decent, however when I gave birth, I still ended up with a $1,400 bill...Definitely better for sick visits or preventative care, not child birthing or major surgery.

    Cons

    Rules to receive quarterly bonus are ridiculous. If you are on maternity leave for 30 days but still work the entire remainer of the quarter, you don't qualify for a bonus. Any type of leave actually. Even if you are the highest sales rep...that happened to me multiple times unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the bonus rules. It should be based on what you sell in the time frame, not whether or not you were on a leave for a week. I missed out on two bonuses because of how the quarters fell and the satrt and end of my maternity leave, effected two bonus. I was the top seller in my district, and got zero bonus. All my coworkers obtained the money that I earned. I'm still bitter, lol. Also, better insurance package for the amount it costs!
