    I have been working at BYD full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ok Pay but it could be better. Good health and dental.

    Cons

    Lack of management skills. Most managers are actually engineers with no managing business experience. They will flex the rules to make them selfs look good to the VP. But if you flex the rules. Instant termination. Chinese are workoholics so expect a ridiculous amount of overtime. If 7 people quit they will only hire 3 to support the production department. Multi Billionaire company.
