      Pros

      Excellent employee dynamics; people got along well. made many acquantiances Opportunities to learn and develop managerial skills Opportunities to cross-train and learn other departments

      Cons

      Work many consecutive days; off days are not too frequent (work-life balance very poor) Big company bureaucracy; hard to get things done Language barriers often prevent tasks from getting done as needed to promote quality customer service Stringent attendance policies tend to temper desire to want to stay with organization No plan for managing organizational change led to major delays in ship-outs and incoming freight;...

      Advice to Management

      The international language of business is English - it needs to be made standard and enforced throughout the organization Need to use technology (ie., software) to automate many of the processes in Transportation Department; this would greatly simplify the workload and eliminate redundancies

      Former Employee - Product Design Engineer in San Jose, CA
      Positive Outlook

      I worked at Foxconn full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good place to learn hands-on about manufacturing and consumer electronics Plenty of opportunities for business travel (almost exclusively to China, see Con) Top CM in the world, good exposure to clients (Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, etc.) and building professional network

      Cons

      Big-company bureaucracy often counter-productive, wears out people Frequent travel to industrial cities in China not everyone's cup of tea Depends on business unit/team, compensation might fall below expectation

      Advice to Management

      Allow some flexibility in management so employees can be more productive Be more competitive in compensation to attract/retain more talents Improve the company culture so it's now always "customers first" (this burns out a lot of people)
