    Current Employee - Packaging Operator in Livermore, CA

    I have been working at InPhenix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chinese buffet every 3 month

    Cons

    Managers are crazy, angry people. They treat operators as slaves. Kicking chairs, knocking tables, yelling, public humiliating, happen day after day. No respect in work place. People are scared, a lot of tears on floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers, please treat us with respect. Some of us are as old as your father.
    We work hard, make good products. You sell a very good price to the customers and make tons of money. We only make $8-10/hour. Please treat us nice, even though most of us can not speak English.

    I worked at InPhenix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You don’t need to know English to work there.

    Cons

    To survive in this small, private company, you need to speak Chinese, better with southern accent.
    In return, Inphenix will offer you well-below-market benefit and compensation, long working hours and tremendous pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to the owner of this company, neither to the VP. They are way too greedy and wasted.
    To the current employees, do not be intimidated by this company’s owner and VP, go and find another job and take you life back.
    To people who want to work for this company, DO NOT work there, other wise you will regret for the rest of your life.

    I worked at InPhenix full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People work extremely hard to keep their positions in this small, private company. Because of strong Chinese culture in this company, workers/engineers work overload, long hours, and NEVER complain.

    Cons

    --- 30% below market compensation; very limited benefit; stressful and poisoning work environment; extremely long working hours, sometimes forced overtime.
    --- Be prepared for numerous and long meetings. Most of the meetings end up with interrogations from top management. Sometimes personal assaults absolutely come from no where!
    --- If you do not speak Chinese, you have zero chance to survive in this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The VPs should learn how to respect those people who work so hard for this company. VPs should learn how to listen and understand people before start blaming and attack people on a personal level.
