    Pros

    Nice office location and new carpet coming soon.

    low employee moral, under qualified employees, separation between American and Chinese employees, struggling with sales and profitability, favortism and political games, like the other reviewer said no management to give reviews, or feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to recognize good employees and promote them. Or you will continue to lose your best talent.

    Pros

    The worker bees really make the company easier to work at

    Cons

    - Politics and poor decisions made by HQ in Taipei make it nearly impossible to innovate or really make any changes.
    - VERY hard to get promoted
    - No annual employee reviews to see how you can improve
    - No employee perks except for an annual holiday party you can't even bring a guest to
    - Low employee morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to listen to their underlings and stop playing politics. Send out a truly anonymous questionnaire to see how Acer can boost employee moral and how we can improve as a company.
