    I have been working at Johnson Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay level / Fair Benefits

    Cons

    Hong Kong Head quarters, Chinese way to do. Cost reduction to the extreme, mass layoffs, extreme staff turnover, lack of hands to handle the minimum task efficiently and to have day to day satisfaction for the good doing, without growth possibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings informing how fantastic the profit is, does not help to improve workforce morale. shrinking the resources to the very limit in order to maximize the output is wrong. At the end the lack of investment is going to turn in excessive spend.
