    Not recommendable as an Employer.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Chennai
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Chennai

    I worked at Flextronics

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Decision 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 ManagementAdvice

    Develop 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!

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

    Pros

    I could get on the Flextronics University website and take all different classes in almost any field there is to think of. I can further my career and move up and since it is a worldwide company you learn a lot more stuff here than you would in just a one country company.

    Cons

    Sometimes there isn't a lot of work, since I was working in Flextronics, but for Aerotek I got laid off. I really loved this company and all it had. Its a shame I didn't get to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire me back. I am a really hard worker and want to move up in my career. MaryAlice Cancino

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses, good management, friendly co-workers, good pay, provides raises, some flexibility with personal schedule. Perks like on site cafeteria and coffee bar. Time off was adequate and benefits were decent.

    HVAC system and building need updated. Not really on board with telecommuting. Team initiatives was not a strong point, and options for growth were limited. Training was sporadic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back ability to telecommute for those with kids.
