    Good opportunities, but most of the people work individually. They don't know how to work as a team.

    Current Employee - Global Account Manager in Austin, TX (US)

    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.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (less than a 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.
