    Pros

    a company with long history, Global company with an impressive growth in the last years. Excellent products to offer. There are many challenges in any position, so it is almost impossible to get bored.

    Cons

    bureaucracy, non flat organization, Internal communication issues and very long processes. Since it is a global company, procedures and regulations are revised constantly, so probably the things you learn today might not help much in the near future.

    I worked at Acer Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff were absolutely supportive to the interns. Lots of flexibility in terms of work contents. They tried to know your expectations on the intern before and during the internship, providing the best resource they could. You really learned the scope, the culture, and the company after couple months services.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't very competitive. It's more like a learning opportunity than an actual job.

    Advice to Management

    How you paid the employees somehow shows the overall status of the company. Might not be a good idea showing young talents with that number.

    I have been working at Acer Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Acer is a tough environment to work in, especially if you're remote. That said, if you can align yourself properly its possible to make change pretty quickly.

    Cons

    Historically Acer was a very top down management style; that's starting to change under the new leadership where management is more open to ideas but it really depends upon the dept you work in. Also, being remote is tough as lots of decisions are made in real time in Taipei.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining those employees who will be your long-term assets. It's been a challenge to hire in new staff due to Acer's recent performance; those who stay are loyal but that needs to be both ways to ensure commitment.

    Big company, boring work. It works for those who just wants a job.
