    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, lots of room for moving lateral or up

    Cons

    Overworked, poor work-life balance, thankless, treated expendable, and expected to move shifts during changes in the project demands on a short notice. Management talks about values but I don't see the practicing of the preaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you see personnel looking as if they are about to kill over, give them a day off without telling them to take vacation time. Pulling double shifts and never mentioning how thankful you are for having people who sacrifice their lives for a business is very disheartening. Appreciation goes a long way.

    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.
