    A once-great company, lost by bad decisions

    Consumer Tech Support Senior (Former Employee) North Sioux City, SD

    ProsBefore it was purchased by Acer, Gateway held firm to a belief that its employees were the reason the company was great, and so they treated everyone very well. However, that was too good to last. During the transition to Acer, a lot of jobs were lost, the once great cow-spotted building now stands empty aside from some new tenants who rent parts of the building for other endeavors.

    ConsLayoffs, in the end. You never knew when the axe would fall. Management was overly concerned with quality, and unfortunately that drove price up and consumers weren't willing to pay for it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone of the management I worked under is there any longer...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Acquired by Acer Group and original Gateway members were in anger and fear

    Industrial Designer (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsGood salary, attractive location, Some nice people, large corporate building and open communications.

    ConsMost of Gateway's employees were let go after Acer bought the business. Many angry and sad faces with fear of losing jobs. Selfish managers, confused designers and disqualified members who isn't really updated in the field to compete with other PC companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAcer in Taiwan must know who to trust, and how to fully use employees' knowledge and professional experiences. Operations under conservative Asian way in this location will not work. Lazy old days top managements should open their eyes and willing to work from the bottom-up, not just counting days and checks that they make.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
