    - Good for people who look for a job to kill time! Employees have nothing to do and just spend their time in office browsing the Internet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to have a present in US, you have to adopt to the US culture. Most management are expat from China that have no ideas what to do with the US hired employees.

    Pros

    Many opportunities for new grad to experience the industry.

    1. Poorly paid.
    2. Extremely unprofessional management. Work you 24/7 without overtime compensation.

    4. No training at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to have breakthrough in US, deploy its style of management and award more to the employees which encourage good staff stay and loyal to the company.
