    I have been working at Accton Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good hardware platforms and good breadth of products. Good upward mobility due to the employee turn over rate. They have had very good people work there but they typically do not stay.

    Cons

    Company is constantly changing direction and lacks a long term focus. It is treated like a sandbox by the CEO. Employees are dispensable to the company and they are treated that way. Low pay, long hours and zero recognition are the norm. Once the company is done with employees they toss them aside with very little severance and care for the families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company would not exist or succeed without employees, consider treating them better. Put more effort into software development for the products as that tends to hold the brand back.

    Pros

    Give the opportunity to try new things then you can choose the one you like. Have needed department so you can't do the job not related with your part. They care about your children.

    Cons

    The directions of this company is unpredictable. Always changes the plan every 3-4 months. Low salary compare with others. Bad HR. Lack of transparency and seems the managements are confuse with the track. No long term goal can be seen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more professional as management level.

    job loading is not really if you are lucky, but it still waste your life.

    Cons

    very poor human resource management

    Lots of potential if only focus on objectives as a balance score card approach.

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

    Pros

    Responsive to customer/market changes in product design and features, and good in coming up with prototype proposals. Flexible to meet customers demand plan.

    Cons

    Objectives set are not supporting each other but at times against each other. Evidence of lacking in transparency and ownership created a tendency of only working towards own department goals and not for the corporate long term goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on true root cause of a problem, address accountability and ownership e.g. process problem should be address by process dept; works on real continuous improvement. Need to overhaul remuneration mindset. Create system and uphold it.

    I worked at Accton Technology

    Pros

    Technology company, big oem manufacturer , excellent manufacturing capability

    Cons

    Too much concentration on OEM business. Do not want to spend money on marketing, for the company marketing is an expense. Product line does not have the right range and the positioning of the products is totally wrong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of useless people in the company, concentrate on brand building and start trusting people

    I worked at Accton Technology

    Pros

    They are the No.1 OEM providers in the world. SMC is owned by Accton. Their hardware division has better benefits when compared to the smaller software division.

    Cons

    Their software division is not provided with support from higher management. The salaries and other requirements are delayed by management. Management demands faster work more than what can be handled. Work Life balance is bad.
