    - you can't wer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Ramon, CA

    ProsBenefits are very good. Medical and dental. They have 401K plus pension plan

    ConsManagement practice is very harsh toward the employees. Can not handle lower level employees questioning or making suggestions that may be different from the manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees how you would like to be treated. Need to be more open minded to suggestions from non-management employees. Treat your employees with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company culture is very unique.

    EDI Specialist (Current Employee) San Ramon, CA

    ProsOOCL provides great benefits. They are one of the fewest companies that offer pension plan. The 401k is quite satisfying.

    ConsThe culture is very different compare to other companies. Since it's headquartered in Hong Kong, their culture and management style is very rigid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMost of the managers are workaholics. The department where I work needs to update their documents every time there are changes. I think that is what's importatnt.

    A case study in how NOT to lead

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros- Multicultural group of employees
    - Strong annual bonus is available when company is thriving
    - Frequent, formalized feedback is mandatory for managers to provide to their subordinates

    Cons- Very poor senior management (reclusive, uncommunicative and capricious)
    - Little recognition at the highest levels of the company of the value that IT provides
    - Favoritism abounds
    - Top-down management style is oppressive and dismissive
    - 'Who you know' is more important than 'What you know'
    - Salary increases do not keep up with inflation nor industry averages
    - Company is downsizing its U.S. workforce

    Advice to Senior ManagementSan Jose's SNT-center management and their immediate superiors are ill-equipped to handle their roles. These management levels: a) cater to favorite, non-performing employees, b) impose communication and rigid role restrictions and c) do not provide leadership in any meaningful fashion. It is highly apparent that several layers of management need to be replaced in order to effectively handle the ongoing problems.
