    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.

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    Too large of an organization, can be bureaucratic, a lot of senior management changes in recent months

    Pros

    Pretty decent hours. Communication pretty good no matter what level you are on. I feel like the pay is good for the work that we do. Great job if you love helping people and meeting new people everyday.

    Cons

    Dealing with difficult people. Having to meet expectations based on numbers. If the store is short, no need to look for any help because you won't get it. NO OVERTIME!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just look at the numbers and use that on how the store is doing. Make a visit every now and then so you can see the things we have to deal with on the daily basis and then you will know why we say and do some of the things that we do.
