    Pros

    Many opportunities for people willing to work. People here have chances to work with various tier one customers. Entire business model can be seen.

    Cons

    bureaucracy is bad thing. People spend too many times on communication because the organization is too big. Extra time is needed for running a simple process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Senior Patent Engineer in Shenzhen, Guangdong (China)

    Pros

    As long as I kept my work going and my guys producing to quota I was never bothered by any supervisor. Could go weeks without even a hello. Sweet. Plenty of paid holidays. Enjoyed my co-workers immensely. Travel to other sites possible. Enjoying being the first to know of leading edge technology.

    Cons

    If you don't speak Chinese you can feel left out of the loop sometimes. Must understand both mainland Chinese and Taiwanese culture or can find yourself in trouble. If you lose face it can take years to get back in their good graces,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck, and don't worry so much about some of the drama foreigners bring. Westerners can be quite demonstrative and outspoken but will work hard to get the work done well and on time.

    Pros

    Varieties of business models, manufacturing choices and independent operations by groups. Newbies could learn the very basic from the ground and experiences the sharp culture of fast pace.

    Cons

    The longer you stay, the lazier you become. Big org. often brings you frustration while things are way too steady, difficult to make a change..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Somehow...there are management being ego-manic...everyone knows well. drop the ego then do the business ...

    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Tucheng, T'ai-wan (Taiwan)

    Pros

    If you can put up with the terrible work/life balance and get promoted, the pay for managers is still pretty good.

    Cons

    Long working hours (12 hours a day), benefits for employees are less than satisfactory, has a strategy of taking orders from other companies without assessing whether the team has the capacity to deliver the products, resulting in unhappy customers and exhausted employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the work time of employees by reassessing your business strategy, getting orders is important, but not at the risk of making angry customers as well as constantly exhausting your employees.

    Foxconn is dead

    • Comp & Benefits

    Former Employee - Manager
    Former Employee - Manager

    Pros

    to be expose to the Asia market, to gain experience in a large manufacturing plant and to expand networking. I don't know if this is 100 words yet but these are all the goods I can say aboiut Foxconn. However, I don't regret working for Foxconn. It might not be a good experience but it's an experience which will broaden your view about the company.

    Cons

    the worst mangement ever! I've work for Foxconn for 3 years and this is the worst company I've work for.
    Salary is low, long working hours without appreciation, unintelligent managers, hardly any benefits, unhealthy unethical business practices and etc. Basically the good to bad ratio is around 1:20
