Not recommendable as an Employer.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Chennai

I worked at Flextronics

ProsIf there is no alternative, JOIN! If there is, stay away! Otherwise, could not think of anything positive worth mentioning.

ConsDecision making takes ages, then risk of deciding the opposite of what is required. Arrogance, lack of strategy beyond acquisitions. Focus on centralization and lack of flexibility. Trying to do business in Asia with an narrow-minded American mindset. Too many people in the decision making chain. No real Flextronics identity or culture! Messy organization and bureaucratic structures. No perspective beyond hire & fire: employment roller-coaster!

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a genuine Flextronics culture! Clear up the managerial mess in Asia. Do not assign managerial responsibility to job holders who do not understand the culture of the country they are supposed to be responsible for!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Big corporation but small business mind

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than a year

ProsBenefit is decent and working hours is flexible.

ConsNot really organized. Upper management doesn't really communicate well with clients and has no business skills to run the whole projects. If you want to get some experience, it is ok place. However, not more than that. Flextronics is a manufacture company but trying to be innovative and trying to be a leader in the tech market.. However, at the end it is a manufacture company.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should know how to run the business and give people more clear directions.
