Suppliers Beware!

I worked at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time

Pros

As a supplier of memory products, if pricing aligned with Supermico low ball requirements then you could sell a reasonable amount of product at their quarter end

Cons

There is no desire or understanding by Supermicro in understanding or desire to develop a strategic relationship with suppliers. They are a 'trading' culture Taiwanese company and drive suppliers to offer the lowest possible pricing and prompt shipment of product. They will play your price off of other suppliers to drive pricing down. They want all the advantages so they can pocket as much profit as possible. Some of the buyers are the most unprofessional, goofy I have ever had to deal with in my career. There is no difference between buying cabbage from a vendor in Taipei than selling semiconductors to some of the buyers at Supermicro San Jose.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. They wouldn't listen or care if you gave them good advice. They have all the answers.
