    I have been working at Accton Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good hardware platforms and good breadth of products. Good upward mobility due to the employee turn over rate. They have had very good people work there but they typically do not stay.

    Cons

    Company is constantly changing direction and lacks a long term focus. It is treated like a sandbox by the CEO. Employees are dispensable to the company and they are treated that way. Low pay, long hours and zero recognition are the norm. Once the company is done with employees they toss them aside with very little severance and care for the families.

    Advice to Management

    The company would not exist or succeed without employees, consider treating them better. Put more effort into software development for the products as that tends to hold the brand back.

    Pros

    Responsive to customer/market changes in product design and features, and good in coming up with prototype proposals. Flexible to meet customers demand plan.

    Cons

    Objectives set are not supporting each other but at times against each other. Evidence of lacking in transparency and ownership created a tendency of only working towards own department goals and not for the corporate long term goal.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on true root cause of a problem, address accountability and ownership e.g. process problem should be address by process dept; works on real continuous improvement. Need to overhaul remuneration mindset. Create system and uphold it.
