Former Employee - Engineer  in  San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Engineer in San Jose, CA

Pros

People working here are all professional. Everyone knows what they are doing. Team work is great. Co-workers are friendly mostly.

Cons

Engineers work on weekend 1/3 of time through the year. No raise, no bonus, and no recognition. Remember to file vacation form for being absent in company picnic event before your boss tell you so. management doesn't remember when you OT but do remember if couple minutes late for daily meeting. Difficult to have time off. Boss does not care if you have a life after work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the management who love to the slam desk and yelling at people, you need anger management.
Considering raise the employees who contribute and did work seriously for years to keep them in the company. Keep the people who already familiar with the job is always better than spend time to recruit and train a new staff. Be nice to the employees and employees will work hard for you. Please stop spending for decoration and pay a little money to make some useful changes.

    Pros

    Keeping a roof over my head, for now.

    Cons

    Management is not appreciative of their loyal employees. Most of us actually do care about our work and do want the company to succeed. I can remember when 100 - 200 people would line up every week to get in to fill out an application to get a job at the former Hadco. Now that it is Sanmina, and when they are doing any hiring, they have to beg people to apply at job fairs. The Owego facility used to be a shining star in the PCB industry. Now it is a black hole that just wants to suck the life out of its employees. No raises for employees in over 8 years. Production equipment is being mothballed and removed while the product is sent outside the facility to be processed elsewhere and then returned to be finished up. Can't meet delivery deadlines due to equipment being down while waiting for parts to be purchased that should be kept as spares on the shelf for making repairs. Too much red tape is present in the manufacturing process to allow for any creative thinking. The entire mentality now is put the board in, push the button, take the board out, repeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating the employees like people. Take a few minutes each day to get out on the floor and talk to the people doing the work. Find out what the problems are, gather ideas, foster a TEAM environment. Appreciate the workers on the production floor and show them some respect and they will in turn make the company a much better place. Bring back the incentive to do a great job and it will get done. Keep stomping on the little people "ants" and they will eventually turn on you are devour the wood of the house. Once the house crumbles, they will move on to a better house.
