I worked at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Great opportunities to learn, hands on for the latest tech in server industry. - Plenty of resource for work functionality. - Some nice and smart coworkers. - Up to standard medical plans. - You get a job to feed your own.

Cons

- Management is horrible, most of the reviews below stated the bullet points already. - No career achievement and satisfaction when you get your work accomplished, which is a big let down. - Unclear career advancement and development, high possibility of idleness on growth. - Performance review based on OT but not your actual performance. Expect you to stay late to look good in front of upper managers. Work late but not work smart. People who stay late always get good impression from manager. - Micromanagement issues, but this depends on the team you work in. - Below average compensation and benefits. - Work contribution for the company will get you nothing but just to let your manager's team look better in front of others. - Free dinner if you stay after 8pm, they will broadcast warning email if they caught someone getting dinner and left at 7:30pm. Level up on skills to sneak out dinner boxes if you want to leave earlier. - Typical Asian/Taiwanese company culture, avoid at all cost. - CHEAP on everything, last year CEO cancelled annual Christmas party, reason is to focus on generating more revenue even the company already reached record high. - Advice to all, come work for them if you desperately needed a job, because it is not hard to get in.

Advice to Management

Major reconstruction on management style and company culture, then you get a highly potential company.

    I have been working at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Crazy OT for production but its rewarding since you can bring home 5k monthly after tax as a lowly assembler than entry level engineer. Great Insurance package, free PPO , low co-pays. Can use PPO to get free massages. Won't fire as long as you stick to where you are supposed to be. Some ass kissing will get you a promotion, eventually. Free meals.

    Cons

    long work hours, but you can fly under the radar pretty easily.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the OT coming.
