I have been working at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Feels like a family, people help each other out, and the environment is pretty casual.

Cons

Below average salary, and because of that this company has trouble retaining young talent. Has a high turn-around rate, people come and go quite often. Most of the ones that stay are near retiring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay us more please, and hire more girls. it's all guys here.

    Good for new graduates, not for long term development.

    Pros

    nice co-workers, free breakfast and dinner (if you work after 7:00pm), they seldom fire employees. really could learn a lot if you have your career plan and you will to learn. Good for new graduates. Good for those who speak Mandarin.

    Cons

    long work hours( 9:00am-12:00pm, 2:00pm-7:00pm at least, & often need to come for half a day on Saturday), lots of non-technical things to do by RD engineers (BOM, go to sign different kinds of forms). RD engineers do the jobs of RD, PM, technical support, and operation. Poor management. CEO is in charge of everything. You got lower salary than your friends who work in American style companies. low efficiency. CEO's relatives are in different department to help manage the company.....pretty much the family style company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to learn how to manage. CEO really needs to find someones who are good at management and give the power to them, which is good for the company and release your work load. CEO need to buy a small software company in order to help build the database and develop software (SMC's software and database are really like junk). Work hour is not important, what important is the efficiency. Reduce work hour, improve efficiency, so that you could save your cost. The company should have online survey, or BBS, which help managers what they need to improve. All in all, so much to improve.WE NEED TO CHANGE.

    Pros

    team work, caring managers. If you are looking for career growth, this is the place you want to stay for at least 5 years.

    Cons

    messy org chart, sometimes you dont know who to talk to. Role and responsibility is not well defined, need to take more time to get used to the culture.
