    Pros

    good benefits and compensation, great bonus, salary review and increment in a timely manner. Global structure, multinational culture. Good learning opportunity. Cross functional working experience

    Cons

    promotion in the manufacturing is hard to get, very competitive. Other than that, its a very good company to work in. I could not find any more cons.

    Advice to Management

    year end review is not result and contribution based always. This makes employee frustrated. The working condition is some areas are not up to the standard. More investment could improve the situation.

    Pros

    Best place to work, hands down. Lots of exposure to some of the biggest brands and upper management. I've been very fortunate to be a part of great teams where it truly felt like I was part of a family. A year after leaving the company, I'm still great friends with people I worked with and reported to.

    Cons

    Lots of structure which is great for some people but not everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do!
