    Pros

    -People are nice to work with -Benefits are great -OK work/life balance -Stable, this company has ambition and will continue to grow.

    Cons

    -Could update interior decor -Takes very long for vertical movement -Could do more employee appreciation, as it can be stale just working all year long with no rewards. -OT is natural -Need to update software to more current. Current software is very outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overwork your employees, and they'll be much happier and work more efficient. Give people more incentive by providing more chances for vertical opportunities.

    I have been working at Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people. Excellent job security.

    Cons

    20% below salary of surrounding area. Idiots work there in positions of importance. This leads to mistakes the cost people their health/ life. Individual unit management is not held accountable for poor safety. Once you are unit manager you are there for life no matter how incompetent you are. If you want to get work done you must do it all yourself. There is no technical expertise in the plant.

    Advice to Management

    Employee experienced work force, not just Asian students fresh out of engineering school with no experience. Adding safety officer to each plant was excellent decision...too bad it took a fatality to finally implement that position.
