    Treat your employee as assets, rather than expenses.

    I have been working at Nan Ya Plastics USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company offers excellent health care and good end of year bonuses. It takes care of its employees and their families outside of work.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with operations and cares more about making more profit than making sure to prioritize safety. The company prefers to purchase cheaper, inferior supplies than spending slightly more money to purchase much higher quality goods. The company prefers to discipline employees rather than to find the root causes of problems.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the operators and supervisors have a better insight into the process and running situations than those who do not go on the floor. Be able to admit that management has made a mistake rather than trying to pin the blame on operators.

    Pros

    The operators have years of experience and are great people to work with. Yearly raises, strong year end bonus, and great experience. No out of pocket expense on health insurance.

    Cons

    Mix of both a supervisor and process engineer. Working as a supervisor takes time away from possible process improvements or time to make such improvements. Systems and rules set in place are pretty much set in stone.

    Advice to Management

    Consider evaluating the salary employees current salaries. Add more flexibility to the pay scale system to offer a larger financial reward to those who excel and that you want to keep around.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. If you perform well, you can advice quickly.

    Cons

    Expect to work long hours. Environment can be deemed hostile. Upper management is mostly taiwanese and speak to each other in mandarin 90% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with more respect. I have been cussed out and yelled at like a child by members of the director level. This is unacceptable behavior.

    I have been working at Nan Ya Plastics USA full-time

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility is given to you early on and you will gain so much experience immediately. The benefits are really good as well!

    Cons

    Training program has a lot of room for improvement. Management style is sometimes infuriating and antiquated, but your days are always different in what you do, so its never boring.

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid worrying about the tiny details. There are times where we would spends hundreds of dollars to find a one dollar mistake.

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers, pretty considerate about the safety issue in the plant, very broad employee diversity. Can learn lots of things during the first 5 years

    Cons

    Low salary, doesn't have good promote opportunity. Company has policy but everyone not really follows the policy. Many miscommunication between each department. Place in the middle of nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more people, and try to let all department work independently. HR should take care of high turnover rate instead of keep hiring people and don't try to keep experienced staffs.
