    I have been working at Asteelflash Fremont full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company used to have a family culture where everyone was close. Over the years, management changed and so did the culture. There's not any pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    It was definitely a pressure cooker type environment. Very stressful, people were publicly put down in front of others... LOUDLY. Long hours and consistently changing direction from upper management which makes it impossible to succeed. This is driving many people to flee the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more respect to your employees, offer more support and push to help grow your employees. This will ultimately make for a happier work environment, better support to our customers and more opportunities for pulling in more business. My hope is that senior management can help push this effort.

    Pros

    None at this stage of their development, Their aquisistion by Asteelflash France in 2012, was not succesful, did deliver positive results for bottom line nor workplace satisfaction for the employees.

    Cons

    Pay is low in almost every categorty except the very top senior level management. Operators and salaried staff leave constantly for better jobs and better benefits. Or the employees are dismissed because the PTO policy is so poor, they accrue attendance points. The level of employee satisfaction is very low, and there are no advocates left for the employees. The People side of Lean Manufacturing is only to monitor the metrics of their production and has nothing to do with their motivational factors and hierarchy of needs (Maslow)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your Values are written only for the satisfaction of executive management to point that they have a values and vision statement. They are not lived by the top mgt, which does not understand that relevant values programs is is always modeled from the top down, never bottom up. I was embarrassed when I saw the Values poster go up as I know they were not lived by mgt. nor were line and salaried employees empowered to implement them.

    I have been working at Asteelflash Fremont full-time

    Pros

    I joined a company that was not upfront about the problems they had.

    Cons

    Absolutely the worst business experience that I have ever encountered.
    A backward mindset in the manufacturing operations - the thinking was how they were doing everything was the best it could be. There was no reason to change anything.
    Benefits were very bad and expensive.
    A company that does not pay its bills on time making the expenses ever greater.
    A company jointly owned by a French Billionaire and Venture Capital Company. The French guy specializes in buying companies at garage sale prices trying to spin gold out of lead. The Venture Capital company only cares about the money, which I do not believe they will be able to recoup. They tried to go big time after they had some luck with two former customers which made them think these former customers success was solely because of them.
    A company that does not care about their people and treats them like mushrooms.
