    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meals if work late into evening
    Scream and shout your frustration like an animal

    Cons

    Later work hour meals being questioned by manager
    Unprofessional managers/sneior management
    Long hours of compulsory meeting - just listening to the CEO's never ending & repeating theme "contribution" but he himself has not make no contribution to improve productivity/efficiency/profitablity on his repeating speech - waste of time
    Required to work in the weekend
    Being dispised if you take paternity leave - managers withe mind set that woman gives birth to babies and that has nothing to do with their husband - legal paternity leave request were given a dirty look
    Very low pay - perhaps except CEO, his wife, and some top management.
    No support from HR with all sorts of harassment
    All talk and no performance required. No professional constructive contribution being required, only need to kiss up to your manager, who can decide whether you has a job/loss a job - no justification of raises, performance review etc. Whatever you contributed, if you don't like it, it's a sin.

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors should fire the CEO and top management, as well as HR, and start fresh. Some managers are so spoiled that they no longer know how to behave in a professional manner. Work place in more like working in the third world, un-developed countries like India, People's Republic of China, Indonesia, Malaysia etc (lots of Asian manager who cannot speak proper English)
