    Relies on overtime.

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsLearn about manufacturing for Consumer products industry. Exposure to a lot of great companies. Opportunity to witness first hand very large scale manufacturing. Get to experience first hand how competitive the manufacturing industry is for consumer products in Asia.

    ConsI don't think anyone minds occasional overtime, but this company relies on overtime, which is very unfair to the employee as you work many more hours for the same amount of pay. Equivalently, you are getting paid less.

    Management can be very stubborn, inflexible, and suppressive. All PTO has to go through approval of General Manager, and most requests are denied, which is ridiculous. This type of thing can be relied on the ethics of the employees, especially overseas staff since they already work so many overtime hours, to control personally. Sometimes, employees would just not take PTO, to avoid the hassle of the application process.

    A lot of hypocritical policies that you will never learn about until you enter the company. Such as "for every Saturday you work in China, you get a day off aside from your PTO, to go back home." This is not true, because when you go back home you are still required to work at your home-base office. Effectively stealing more time from you to get free work out of you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work, abusive labor practices.

    NPI Program Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsSalary, experience with China manufacturing.

    ConsManagement style can be extremely unreasonable, inhumane, even abusive at times. Management looks down on employees.
    Management does not care about employees working conditions.
    Management is very selfish.
    Management does not trust it's employees.
    Management frequently does not provide employees the tools they need to complete their job, then blames them for not completing their job on time.
    Does not provide good training to employees on how to do their job.
    Requires employees to work upwards of 80 hours a week at times with no overtime pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more reasonable, listen to your employee's suggestions at least for consideration, stop generally just being downright unreasonable, lying to your employees, and not being willing to change your abusive practices.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
