    I have been working at BenQ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good understanding of market and product positioning
    Listen to feedback from employees and work to implement changes
    Career advancement opportunities for those who work for it
    Customers are a #1 priority here and the company can & will make changes to better serve those customers

    Cons

    Lack of CRM software
    A lot of archaic internal meetings about topics/issues that could be easily solved with a little automation and collaboration software
    Marketing department is severely under staffed and over worked - spread too thin and have too many priorities outside of the education & commercial markets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales team is not your enemy. Without sales this company can't exist. Remember to treat those who are valuable as if they are by more than a occasional "congratulations".

    I worked at BenQ

    Pros

    None that I can think of...

    Cons

    Culture is terrible. This company sucks the marrow from your bones. Expects results while constantly finding ways to avoid rewarding sales performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The US president of the company is an uninformed bully with an absolute absence of personality or leadership.

    Pros

    If you need to find some place to make you feel complecant, view yourself as significant, ignore team play, actually can do nothing to save a crashing company, select BENQ. And you're happy to find your supervisor to be even more arrogant than you.

    Cons

    Your supervisor is too arrogant to see that itself is really not enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what your team is doing! Look at how the world is going! At least there are only 2 main product line here. JC.
