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

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    They have the policy not to laid off people.

    Cons

    The management culture is one of the worst. Managers have no guts to take responsibilities and not taking serious attitude to solve the problems in the plant, instead they blame each others. Very low employees retention rate in the company. Politics has great influence in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Try to concentrate more on making profits instead of politics.

    Pros

    Loyalty to company, company will show loyalty to you motto seems to exist.
    Process and work is extremely easy to learn and understand.
    If you were to fail at your job, you will rarely if ever be fired for it.
    Being fired from this company literally takes effort.
    Never had a layoff before, since the company was built and started.
    If you cannot handle the pressure of your position. You will just be moved to a less stressful position and become less micromanaged, but with the same salary as before, when a position becomes available.
    A safety department that is not corrupt and attempt to hide worker related injuries. They are known to do whatever it takes to get you the medical care you need if you are injured.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Micromanaged to the point of mishap.
    Communication between departments are lacking.
    Upper-management constantly strike fear into employees as a way to motivate them. Upper-management will never hesitate to belittle you in public with yelling, or embarrass you in front of your colleagues or people that work underneath you.
    A culture of consistent blaming other departments instead of attempting to work together to fix a problem for the better of the company.
    Incompetent workers and workers that refuse to do what they are told, and azzholes that complain and yell all day instead of working to get the job done are never fired. Instead these people are feared, because people want to avoid conflict with them. Instead hardworking people wanting to do good for the company will get reprimanded constantly micromanaged and never praised. (What does this tell you about the employee morale in this company?)
    If you want a company that will never thank you or appreciate your hard work and dedication to the company than this company is for you. The culture here is once you signed and came on board it is your duty and obligation to give your life for the company. A "good job" or "atta boy" will become a silent, you were supposed to do that anyways, why do I need to say anything...
    Salary is traditionally known to be lower than the national average, and management likes it and wants to keep it that way.
    Money is all that matters to them. And they are very cheap about it. They are only as loyal to you as you are to their money. I know typically all manufacturing industry is like this, but this company seems to be a bit more over zealous on this money thing.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment of collaboration instead of constant excuse making and blaming culture. This will lead to more permanent results that will create more wealth for the company. With the current band aid fix culture this company promotes, the money saved from it is merely short term. Thus the company will never receive long term benefits.
    I understand the company has never had layoffs before, and do not want to have a layoff to keep with tradition. I would tell management that firing incompetent workers or workers that have no desire to work or get the job done, and all they do is b#tch and complain daily about how sucky their job is is NOT called a LAYOFF. It's called a firing your sh#t workers, and replacing them with good competent get the job done workers. This will increase productivity, which will increase bottom line profit for the company. And will also increase worker morale, which means less stress for you. Oh wait, I guess that would mean less yelling at your employees and belittling them in the face of many peers. And being less of a tyrant in general. And we wouldn't want to take away that fun would we?

    Pros

    Nany YA has a pension plan and they have a very well estup 401K. They provide a cafeteria for supervisors and above.

    Cons

    The Management absolutley does not care about anyone from this country. All production management above entry level production supervisor level is Taiwanese.

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest in employee moral and the overall treatment of employees... Make an investment in your employees and actually invest money in working equipment

    Pros

    Forgiving of occasional missteps
    Simple Process to understand

    Cons

    Low level of communication between upper and lower management.
    Little communication between departments because of an enviroment of assigning blame rather than finding solutions
    Lack of planning, changing plans less than a week in advance keeps us flexible but sabotages employees ability to plan ahead (remember 1 hour of prior planning saves 4 hours of future work)
    Changing priorities makes it difficult to accomplish long term goals
    Training is treated as additional busywork and not a valuable tool for many employees

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment of collaboration to find permanent solutions and not temporary excuses
    Look for improvements that will benefit the corporation in the long term, don't wait for a problem to point out a potential improvement
    Improvements that reduce the workload of the operators will increase moral and allow the plant to run with fewer employees (running with fewer people without reducing the workload WILL lead to future problems) and should be explored.

    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

    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.
