    Good salary, interesting people, international connections. Great working staff

    Flexible working hours, no ad hoc projects, no stress at work. The working environment is very relaxing.

    Managers are not managing people. They are doing their own tasks and do not keep track of their people's work. Poor company organization and structure. Departments are not doing what they are supposed to do.

    Reorganize the whole plant and have a real leader to drive the team for continuous improvement.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Pay & benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management x 100. The HQ is in China, despite the american name. All decisions are by them, they micromanage the Americans so badly. Despite earning large profits as a corporation, they make you jump through hoops just to buy office supplies. They (the Chinese management) really have no clue how to run a company. They act like they do, ie surveys of employees, etc for feedback, yet they do nothing with it. They keep cutting back on everything, loosing all the best employees and piling the work on the ones that remain.

    Advice to Management

    I have no idea what to say, they wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Product quality of US products is good. China has significant issues.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed. Especially on the sales side. The management does not understand their customer base. Continuous churn is sales assignments disrupts relationship building.

    Advice to Management

    Use domestic talent to run each ot the countries' sales teams. Stop trying to homogenize the sales process.
