    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Foxconn full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Regular unplanned overtime and mandatory weekends make up for the low pay.

    Cons

    Staffed with work release thugs that don't know the difference between the workplace and jail. The real criminals are in management; some have been arrested by the FBI.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen or heed any, so it's pointless to attempt

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Foxconn full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      You get a lot of hours.

      Cons

      Poor management. No one seems to know whats going on. They care more about numbers then their employees. You speak up about anything they get rid of you. Unsafe working conditions and a very dirty place. A poor place to work!!!!!!!

      Advice to Management

      Start over! You have all these people in orange vests that walk around all day with their hands in their pockets. Get rid of the floor managers on day shift and the department heads that don't do much through out the day.
