Data Entry Operator (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON30 May 2014
What I like to do in any work situation is the constant collaboration that is involved when working with one or more people. The flow of ideas that come from other individuals makes for an easy going environment to be in.

Interesting work on a wide range of product development projects
Hardware Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 May 2014
Projects are with a variety of clients and typically involve designing the product physical infrastructure (shelf, rack. frame) including the power distribution and filtering, cooling units and external interconnections to alarms and craft I/O.

Work involves negotiating with clients to establish requirements and schedules, desiging the product infrastructure to meet these requirements and the schedule, verifying the design and providing verification reports to the customers.

Management is supportive and the co-workers are congenial and co-operative. Multi-discplinary team includes, electrical /electronic, mechanical, product safety, EMC, FPGA and software expertise.

Biggest challenge is dealing with mid-stream changes in requirements or schedules.

Biggest enjoyment is successful delivery of designe to a satisfied client.
Pros

Cons
Sometimes tight schedules leading to long hours.

Each Galley Slave Gets Their Own Oar!
LOGISTICS ASSOCIATE I (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, Ontario12 July 2012
Want to experience work the "old fashioned" way? Join the indentured service of Flextronics. This company will give you that institutionalized feeling you've always longed for. Bells and buzzers to tell you when to herd into the plant, to the bathroom, out for breaks. Security guards non-discretely pat you down as you leave. A small over-crowded cafeteria will serve the latest in outdated MRE's, stale bread and warm water.

Scratch your head as you wonder what your non-English speaking supervisor/manager/Tribune/Overseer just said to you. Who knows, you may have been insulted in a new, exciting language. No heat in the winter, no air conditioning in the summer...just the way it was in Georgia 150 years ago.

For your entertainment, a dimly lit theatre is provided for you to attend the latest in mind-alterating re-education in the spirit of Uncle Ho! Once a month there is a prize for the most dust balls collected at Tenko.

So if you're a WASP, middle-aged, desperate for work and willing to be abused, Flextronics is the place for you.
Pros
learn to swear in tamil.
Cons
harrassment is accepted.
