    Nice people, decent benefits, good bonus at year's end.

    Old software used, old standards, not shifting their infrastructure with the times.

    More emphasis is needed for new hires to bring them up to speed.

    Pros

    The fact they paid profit sharing in challenging years

    Cons

    They are promoting employees without the qualifications to be in the new positions. They are changing and not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    As you are about to be sued for failing to following company policies, I would recommend that process to begin.

    Pros

    The environment is semi laid back. People are friendly and are willing to help you succeed. Benefits are good and overall work culture is positive.

    Cons

    It's hard to move vertically within the company. Company seems micro-managed to a level where you feel like you're back in school.

  5. It was a decent learning experience, but the company is very primitive in its technology and processes.

    Pros

    It use to be a great place to work, casual, laid back and most of the people were pleasant to work with. But I've heard it drastically changed after some military guy came in and changed everything

    Cons

    After the management changed, it became like a military camp

    Advice to Management

    When people are treated like children and constantly have the feeling that they have to look over there shoulder, mediocrity is created and people will be compelled just to do what is necessary, instead of going the extra mile.

    Pros

    A laid back place to work that isn't micro managed. Office co-workers are experienced & friendly and middle management has a great open door policy. Company is stable & successful mostly because of long term employees (Many 10+ year employees). Nice bonuses when the company succeeds.

    Cons

    The trend is not to promote from within. Inexperienced hires are made to fill leadership positions when fully capable individuals are available. This leaves the potential to be doing the same thing year in and year out. Unapproachable (and unseen) upper management. Salaries are a bit low for the area. "Bottom line" Chinese culture is evident from parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the Round Rock management is good. Perhaps giving incentives could boost production. Focus on production cost by lowering warranty issues and holding suppliers accountable.

    Pros

    This company has many veterans on staff that know a lot about their major product. AC motors. They've also put in place some good policies to facilitate excellent customer service. They can adapt to emergencies well. Furthermore there sales veterans also know the products, so sales is quite profitable.

    Cons

    Sales Quota's are chosen by Taiwan head office, some more individual freedom would be good.

    Advice to Management

    Good work, Keep it up. If possible win yourself some rights to choose your own quotas both in East and Western Canada.

    Pros

    The atmosphere was very laid back and management was very flexible with regards to taking time off and such. Team members were very helpful in completing tasks.

    Cons

    You need to drive your own career, it's a very easy place to get stuck doing the same thing day in and day out for 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I think management does a good job running things. They could focus more on improving productivity than constantly reorganizing.
