    I have been working at Wintec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Management don't show respect and appreciation to some people's hard work, they take it for granted
    You will never get a raise/review/promotions until you ask for, and you probably not going to get it
    Salary is way below market price
    No benefits/they offer cheap gifts (RMA returns) to employees in Christmas Party

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your people with some respect and appreciation. Good employees are assets of a company and you should know why there's so many people leaving.

    I worked at Wintec full-time

    Pros

    Select individuals
    Learn how to speak Chinese

    Cons

    Very few holidays. Even if there is a holiday (ie. thanksgiving) it's mandatory to work warehouse shifts due to planning errors.
    Pay is way below market rate. No pay adjustments, rarely any bonuses.
    A LOT of micro management. ie. Even as a salaried employee, they check your login times to make sure you're there for 8 hours and sends out ridiculous reminder emails even when you do scan in
    A LOT of bureaucracy and family bureaucracy.
    Overall not very forward-thinking, flexible, or trusting.
    Does not foster an appreciative environment. Treats workers in a manner convenient for them. (ie. RMA gifts as Christmas presents, shuffles work to employees that do nothing in relation)
    Conflicts of interest and methods of doing things results in nothing getting done. Kind of like our government.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compromise. Stop caring about the small numbers and focus on the big picture.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA

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

    Pros

    - Wonderful people to work with

    Cons

    - Lack of respect and appreciation
    - Poor compensation and benefits (health premiums are ridiculous, very few holidays, yoga class is gone)
    - Keeps an eye on your hours even if you're salary. If you leave "early", they take that time out of your PTO
    - Reviews/Raises are rare -- better off using the time and energy to buy a lotto ticket instead.
    - No direction or coherent strategy whatsoever. Very wasteful uses of money
    - Enterprise system is very slow and poorly maintained

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better because you're milking them for all they got. People are in leadership positions who don't seem qualified or capable.

    Pros

    Nice and friendly people. The projects were interesting and engaging. The company has a fairly flat structure. Senior management is accessible and open to the employees' feedback.

    Cons

    Poor benefits, low salary, no cultural diversity. I did not see any attempts to retain good employees. Extremely lean organization. When someone would leave, the replacement position would not be filled making work-life balance rather difficult to achieve.
