    I worked at Compal Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable environment, the location is fine. A place where you can build up your fundamental knowledge about OEM/ODM business process and engineering abilities.

    Cons

    Benefits so-so, this company may not focusing on innovation technologies but the rules to follow electronics manufacturing. It's not exactly a right place for employees who is looking for something "new" at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Manager should think about how to keep valuable employees around, the thing that many employee left might result in long-term damage.

    I have been working at Compal Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable job, colleagues are generally nice and the location (Neihu, Taipei) is convenient for those who are used commuting by Metro.

    Cons

    No future for keeping doing OEM in 2010s, but OEM is still taking up the majority of business of Compal. Compensation is not good, perks application mechanism is kind of silly and old style. Too many old people stops the innovation progress for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Very old management style. Not a good company recommended for potential young talents.
