    I worked at Foxconn full-time

    Pros

    The company has had stellar growth and is expanding globally.

    Cons

    Unclear goals. Very much about making the senior leader succeed instead of the company or the employees. Makes an employee feel like a means to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn to be open and diverse. Too much dependence on family and native Taiwanese employees.

    I worked at Foxconn full-time

    Pros

    Even though it is a well-known very infamous company, It is a job that you can get paid every month if you can not find any others immediately. Plus if you don't care working in very oppressive, corruptive and bureaucratic work place.

    Cons

    Some employees are working like a slave in the finance team, others are very free and lazy. Finance Management is unprofessional, very corrupted. CFO doesn't need to perform any job in her position but just talking and seating in her desk everyday, she is very busy at hiring new finance team member nearly every month, extremely high employee turn-over rate (30%-50% annual turn over rate in finance team), CFO can use her own power to hire some low educated people who even don't have basic office work ability dummy as a senior higher paid finance member, surprisingly, from the GM to HR and the entry level employees, all of them can accept all those trash and corruption existing and they all keep silent (simply because only those employees who can not find any job outside of the this company will stay in this company for years), those kinds of corruption exists NOT ONLY in one department, I saw some similar dummy employees in the other department, too. It seems corruption is a generally acceptable in this branch, not sure the whole Foxconn corporation??

    Advice to Management

    NO word!!!

    I worked at Foxconn full-time

    Pros

    Can't think of one instantly, I guess that tells a lot about the place.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, long hours, unpredictable working hours - some days will be short, some will be very long. 1 utterly terrible person in HR who messes up 100s of lives everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as humans, not robots.
