    I have been working at Hon Hai full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for rapid career advancement if you are willing to make sacrifices. As long as you find a good department/superior, your hard work will not go unnoticed and it will be rewarded in the form of generous bonuses/stock options.

    Cons

    Despite being one of the largest corporations in the world, there are still quite a few managers/departments that rely on dated/inefficient management styles. Getting with the right team is key. Also, if you plan to work in China, then proficiency in Chinese basically is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in new talent from around the globe, not just Taiwan and China, learn from their experiences and different methods/management styles, and try to incorporate these different approaches into the company at the most basic levels to realize the transformation of the corporate culture sought by Chairman Gou.

    3. The personal creative idea will be hard to implement since each department has no sufficient room to bet their KPI on uncertain image.

    Advice to Management

    To be a qualify manager, it's important to know how does the rule come from. It can help you know how does the other overcome it.
