    I have been working at Moxa Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee-focused culture. Very friendly, competent co-workers. Healthy work-life balance. Work is fun here. Managers are very experienced and mentor younger employees. A great place to start your career!

    Cons

    Smaller, more horizontal culture. Less opportunities for advancement. Although, with a smaller company you learn a broad variety of skills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Moxa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Best working environment I've ever been in - it sounds corny, but the company truly cares about the well being of its employees, even providing benefit funds for vacations, cultural events, etc. High level of focus on employees having a work/life balance. Profitable industrial market segment which makes it a relatively stable company long term.

    Cons

    The company is on the small side, so the opportunities for advancement are limited. Very conservative budget and investment philosophy, which makes it challenging to achieve short term goals. Level of pay can be lower than industry standard, which can lead to good talent taking higher paying opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at industry compensation benchmarks and pay top performing employees accordingly to avoid turnover. Take a more aggressive investment approach to gain more brand awareness and market share, and do it now while profits are high. More competition entering the market will drive street prices down over time and reduce budgets as a result.

    Pros

    Full of pretty dumb people, so it's easy to do a little work and come off looking like a genius. Pay is okay.

    Cons

    Taiwanese company; all "me too" products. In appropriate HR behavior out of the headquarters in Taiwan; not realizing that most of the world has different customs, manners or even laws. It's not about what you produce here; it about doing what you're told by a select amount of about 6 people.

    Advice to Management

    Lean how to do just about everything better. Hire smart people, embrace some practices that are being implemented in other successful companies and for darn sake... be more flexible.

    I worked at Moxa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The company has a clear goal to become a world class leader in Automation. It is also willing allocate resources to ensure growth in targeted markets and customer satisfaction. Above average compensation and good health benefits.

    Cons

    Your career path is in the hands of a few of managers who are in power. Performance does not guarantee success at this company. It is not uncommon that unqualified people get promoted because of their affiliation with existing power structure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and not only the selected management members. Talents are lost because they can not break through the glass ceiling at the company. Employees often find themselves frustrated working for a company that does not realize true talents.

    I worked at Moxa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The company tries extremely hard at building a world-class business. It has shifted global resources to specific business areas that it thinks will improve processes and customer retention, and has its hear tin the right place.

    Moxa has a very good health and benefit system, a company bonus structure that is for the most part fair. It's tough to get in as the company works hard to hire and retain the right people

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there is a giant communication and execution gap between the Taiwan office and its regional offices - yes, I know this exists all over but at Moxa this gap becomes a unspoken sore point to employees that don't drink the kool-aid, and obvious to customers that see us scrambling constantly to get our different business groups and cultures lined up to win consistent global business.

    I do think there is a glass ceiling at Moxa, if you are not part of the existing power structure it is very difficult to get inside based on your achievements alone.

    Advice to Management

    Yes - listen to the voice of the customer, but also take action on that action. Listen to your people throughout the organization, and do not think that the only voices that matter are those that are in management.

    Pros

    Moxa always cares for the growth of employees, and it's a company who respects each and every individual on their professions.

    Cons

    Always looking for the consensus sometimes ends up in numerous meetings and a long decision process.

    I have been working at Moxa Inc. full-time

    Pros

    I have never seen or worked for a company that is as sincerely committed to a core set of values as Moxa. You have to experience it to understand it, but Integrity, Customer Focus, Execution, and Mutual Respect are not just words on a page to the leadership team or to the rank and file. This is a company that cares deeply about maintaining a strong, employee-centric work culture. And you work with some of the nicest, hardest-working people you'll ever meet.

    Cons

    Moxa probably has more than its fair share of internal communication and coordination issues. There are definitely some growing pains as the company ramps up its operations to compete on a much larger scale.

    Advice to Management

    Don't skimp out on the fundamentals.

    Pros

    Great people, culture and values. Solid product and solution portfolio and roadmap for industrial ethernet and automation. Significant investment in R&D and customer service. Very promising growth prospects.

    Cons

    The already extensive product and solution portfolio is growing all the time. It is a challenge to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation. A nice challenge to have though!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!
