    I have been working at Flextronics

    Pros

    After working with the company as a customer for 4 years, I knew that I would one day join the Flextronics family. I have never been more happy since joining the company. Nor have I witnessed an organization of such grand scale invest in their employees' education, careers and professional development. I can't say enough great things about the company and its people; from top to bottom I have found nothing less than first class.

    Cons

    I have no cons to offer.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to take on new tasks.

    One can take on any title here if you dare to take the responsibility.

    Job opportunities for the town people.

    Cons

    Negative blaming culture. Management is NOT reward based but punishment based. Example, when one accepted a new task, at that moment itself one is held accountable and in the firing line for anything relatable to the task. Previous owner will not help you. Why would they accept back a problem? Mostly because any ownership is trouble, not reward.

    The seniors here are not friendly, does not want to share knowledge and does not work in a team. It is all about self survival here. The good ones that teach all eventually leave for better reward elsewhere. No plan to keep good people?

    No civil respect here. Screaming, losing temper and degrading newbies culture.

    Supervisors do not communicate and go through career roadmap with us. You are on your own.

    No sense of belonging.

    Internal dispute.

    No proper training for new comers on the system and way of work here. Like usual the "blame" is active. No "solution".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring new people. Instead hire back the old good ones that kept the place intact in the first place.

    Consider hiring transition managers. Knowledge are taken out forever at this rate.

    Great place to work, good pay scale, a lot of support (when you look for it), seems to be a strong management (but to be seen), not so much micro management

    Personal Growth is in the culture. Lots of opportunity to go places. specialization occurs in segments. Good technology

    Former Employee - Electronic Assembler in Newmarket, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - good experience to learn a lot of jobs within the company
    - the coworkers were the best part of this job, everyone was like a family, it was like a second home
    - usually stable environment and always busy most of the time except for some periods
    - very diverse so you get to meet people of different cultures and background

    Cons

    - MANAGEMENT were arrogant and didn't care about the workers so much and don't listen to the workers who have real complaints
    - it was far to travel to Newmarket for a lot of workers
    - pay was not that great for most

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being greedy and selfish and listen to the needs of the workers and keep them happy. This is why Flextronics eventually shut down.
