Great company but falling apart slowly

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chennai

I have been working at Flextronics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExcellent exposure of how the organization works. New challenges keep you in the mood to go for more and stay hungry. Revision in compensation to match market standards.
Measurable goals and achievable targets.

ConsData oriented leadership and quite Weak for few support functions diluting the primary objective and resulting in extremely shabby decisions.
Compensation is inconsistent across similar levels
High on cost consciousness and nothing wrong about it until it starts to hurt the morale of the employees (Ground level, who contribute towards the operations)
Culture needs to be infused across all levels

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
