    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse and interesting. Job involved a lot of travel to neat places. Must have great intercommunication skills. Interacted with great people from around the world.

    Cons

    Can get laid off at any time. I never saw it coming. They had to make room for another higher level director. So even though you add a lot of value and do a great job you can get laid off at any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not lay off experienced employees. A lot of knowledge leaves the company.

    Pros

    a chance to see how company operate in this large size of the sacle. Many employee work there for a long time and enviroment is friendly.

    Cons

    Maybe becuase it is big that sometime, one simple thing will go through many processes that a small company will be done quickly. work expection will be almost no training or transition given for a new job assignment. Salary tends to be low.

    Current Employee - Cell Phone Repair Technician in Brighton, MI (US)

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    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!
