3) Don't do more than your peers
4) Boss don't read email
5) Chua Nam Tiong (the Manager) can't make decision on his own; puppet!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a supervisor or Boss, know your subordinate, don't listen to other envious parties feedbacks. Do your own back ground investigation before making any hasty decision. This comment is especially for supervisor Chua Nam Tiong.

    Pros

    Scrappy little company. The people there work hard. The facilities at some locations are very good and include nice little benefits like excellent espresso machines and open space to sit and collaborate.

    Cons

    This company seems to be thrashing. Disk drives are a commodity, and they really seem to need to move into the next big thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ramp up the commitment to employees. Clear out the deadwood, reward and recognize the ones you want to keep with benefits they see as motivating. Offer more learning and development opportunities for your people, and move your infrastructure at all sites into this decade.

    Pros

    Lots of hard-working rank and file. If senior leadership is replaced with top-flight US execuitives, the company could really fly! Havant is not where it's happening, but it's still "headquarters".

    Cons

    UK headquarters are behind the times. Nothing innovatives comes out of Havant. Aging IBMers who live in a vacuum are the rule in Havant, UK. They just don't get it when it comes to investing in systems and processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please replace the current executive leadership team in Havant. They are truly unqualified for their roles. They are ostriches with their heads in the sand and see change as too strenuous. Additionally, high tech innovation won't be coming out of the UK anytime soon or ever!
