    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!
