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

Pros

Company paid medical/dental insurance.
Free food in the morning

Cons

No flexible working hours. You have to sit there for 8 hours.
Even though it is a profitable company, no 401 K match
Sick time is accured with working hours. 5 days per year.
Vacation is 10 days per year no matter how many years' service

Very old infrastructure. Resistance to change.
A lot of stupid manual work even though most of those work can be automated.
There is no opportunity to learn new skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management like this cannot keep the talents.

    I worked at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They rarely actually fire people, unless (as in the case of the HR department, they replace all of the Caucasians with Taiwanese personnel that are unfamiliar with U.S. employment laws). They give "token" yearly bonuses to avoid having to pay overtime to salaried employees.

    Cons

    Creativity is stifled. Opinions from anyone other than the CEO are not considered. CEO keeps information from suppliers (e.g. Intel) to himself to avoid having his pronouncements contradicted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify. Add a real customer service and support program to allow the company gross margin halt it's precipitous decline over the last 5 years (see the annual reports!).
