    Typical 401k matching, 3 week vacations, affordable health coverage and bonuses when company numbers are met.

    Cons

    Executive Administrative Assistant Managers strongly practice favoritism, and play politics. Managers are not trustworthy and will make attempts to hold you back from branching into other positions. Tend to side with Executives instead of standing for what is right when it comes to their employees.

    I worked at Lenovo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Co-worker, Challenging work.

    Cons

    Always under the fear of a layoff. Management is wanting to believe that employees have a "winning" attitude, but in reality it a "survivor's" attitude due to frequent layoffs. Chinese co-workers who say they can do much more than they actually have the skills to do.

    Advice to Management

    Right the ship of close shop. You're never going to keep good talent with the current atmosphere.
