    Pros

    Huge corporation with good, established process. Hardworking and mostly friendly people from a diverse background. Fast growth opportunity due to high turnover.

    Cons

    Low pay and focused on cost saving on employees. Quite a bureaucratic organization and slow to implement changes. Personal connections is influential in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Your strategy to hire newly graduated foreign students who seek sponsorship, with minimum pay, has worked pretty well, but a stable and satisfied workforce will be more beneficial in the long run.

    Pros

    Family type of environment, coworkers are willing to help if possible, you'll learn much more than you expect in a very short amount of time

    Chinese language is spoken most of the time, not really any perks, employees are undervalued and therefore underpaid

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on training and mentoring your employees. Also, try to appreciate them more

    Pros

    Upper management and the project managers are helpful, supportive and knowledgeable. Great bunch of guys.

    Cons

    Quality was being managed by manufacturing and is not a good idea as manufacturing has a different agenda than quality. It was like letting the fox guard the hen house.

    Advice to Management

    None to give.
