    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.

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Ok as a first job. Exposure to different projects means plenty of opportunities to learn. Being an OEM, job security is pretty stable, especially when projects enter mass production stage. Medical, dental, and vision coverage and 401k with company match. Very lax dress code.

      Cons

      Below average salary with almost zero chance of getting a raise. Working hours are long (OT and weekend shifts almost guaranteed). Outdated equipment used to manufacture units, leading to poor quality and more headaches at the test line. Experienced engineers seem to leave every month for greener pastures, leaving inexperienced new grads to take over and inevitably fall on their faces. Managers encourage finger pointing...

      Advice to Management

      Make better efforts to retain your experienced employees. A lot of these projects find themselves in these serious holes because you always lose the main engineer who knows the ins and outs of the product. Expecting new grads to pick up on 3 years of knowledge in 2 weeks is ridiculous. Reward those who are willing to work 12 hour days for you instead of taking advantage of them.
