    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

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

    Cons

    Not a 9 to 5 job, working globally has it challenges, moving from one segment to another is not as easy as it should be, there are some silo's and the company has some duplicate of roles

    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.

    I worked in a department that was very proactive and my fellow techs helped each other. Pay was good and benefits are adequate. Every day challenged your skills and knowledge. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Continuing R.I.F initiative to reduce budgets. Little chance for upward mobility.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Training given are quite compact and useful. Trainee can use the machine in quality department and work around the company without much restriction. Many learning opportunities in this company if you are wiling to explore by yourself.

    Cons

    The allowance given is too little. Not enough to cover transportation and expenses. Workload for engineers seems like too much. Turnover rate high.
