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

Pros

- Friendly coworkers and management, I've never had a personal problem with anyone and untalented employee don't last long

- Willingness to listen/ change
Depends on your team and manager, but I have made some changes that I did not think were going to be listened to. Sometimes you need to put a little extra effort in making the case.

- Good/ great products
I'm excited whenever we come out with products, its an interesting company that makes really innovative products. Their is a dedicated fan base that I can relate to and enjoy

- Location
traffic is also an issue in the South Bay, but it could definitely be worse, this building is in a good location

Cons

- IT infrastructure is a mess
its bad, frequent server crashes, lack of response, they don't seem to have the resources they need to do their job adequately

- Too many out-dated systems
our inventory is managed by a system older than I am, each system doesn't work with another, they aren't the most user friendly, desperately needs updating

- Average to low average pay
 believe that we would retain higher caliber employees if compensation was better, I consider if I can really make a long term career here 7 - 10 years out

- High turnover
It seems too high and people here use ASUS as a stepping stone to somewhere else

- Old Building
Nothing that exciting about the building, its not the worst either, but considering the size of the company, the facility should be larger and nicer

- Lack of training
Our training process for each position is sparse at best, its definitely a sink or swim mentality, be better to have more structure in learning the specific roles and creating a shared database for referencing job functions and how to use the internal systems, left to your own devices much of the time, which builds your personally but hurts synergy

Advice to Management

Invest more in IT infrastructure or exploring 3rd party services to fix the problems. Find the employees worth keeping and invest more in them so they won't leave. Formalize training processes and create a database where people can reference job functions.

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

    Pros

    A rapidly growing company in an industry that is facing rapid decline and demise. You’ll get the opportunity to see very cool designed products.

    Cons

    This company has rapidly grown but processes have not caught up. Expect to be overworked with no resources. Not a bad company to join right out of school but might not be the place for the experienced professional.

    Advice to Management

    Before you do anything; whether it be developing a new product, hiring for a new role, etc; insure the proper processes in place. Think Six Sigma.
