    I have been working at Pegatron full-time

    Pros

    Have a lot of things to learn and build the resume.

    Cons

    No support from HR, they will never help you when you have any problem.

    Advice to Management

    Find the people who want to work, not who can stay but not doing their job.

    I have been working at Pegatron full-time

    Pros

    There are none, maybe except you become street smart

    Cons

    Micro management. Expected to stay long hours at work even if there is nothing to do. Highly underpaid engineers. No compensation for working overtime for months, including weekends. Ideas and potential new projects to improve or optimize factory conditions fall on deaf ears. Some supervisors abuse their power by dumping company money for personal things and take phones home as they please. Management threatens to fire individuals all the time. Meetings are held everyday for 4-5 hours but most of them are in Mandarin. Shady business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees fairly. Losing a lot of talent due to low paying jobs. Better, close up shop in the States. This isn't China

    I have been working at Pegatron full-time

    Pros

    Nothing only a paycheck not a career

    Cons

    This company repairs notebooks from HP, Toshiba, and Asus. This company discriminates against Americans. They bring Asian people in on vacation visas and they get away with it. They even tell you in company meetings that if you (americans) do the job then I wouldn't need to bring them in, but this is their way of getting rid of hard working people. On the repair floor not one American is in charge and that is not by mistake. Instead of paying people more they just bring people in from California. So many affairs going on there with upper management and employees. I wouldn't buy anything from HP they are aware of this and only stay because they don't pay anything the more HP finds wrong the less Pegatron gets paid so it is win win for HP. HP's quality went down when they split. Pegatron has never had quality don't send your business there unless you want recycled parts not tested put in your customer's notebooks. Pegatron doesn't hire people with skill cause they don't want to pay them. The doors should be shut on this place. Immigration should check this place out.

    Advice to Management

    Get new Management. We are a numbers company could care less about quality or the people

    Pros

    Work is super easy. Can take off work with no problem. People are cool too work with.

    Cons

    No Advancement, No bonuses if your a temp,even if your a good, hard working employee. Pay sucks for a billionaire company. They don't drug test. Too many people are on drugs there.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay people more. That's why this company doesn't keep people. My area saves the company the most money and we get paid the least.

    Pros

    It's a pay check, if can put "zero" star this is what I need to rate or less if possible.

    Cons

    *i hate every second that I have to stay in this little china town or taiwan town in jeffersonville, since most managers/supervisor is Asian. 90% old employees have left. Management are demeaning and very biased to Asian employees. The management is horrible...therefore, this company won't get more that the minimum...can't force me to stay OT too.

    Advice to Management

    HP should pull out business, where is HP's social responsibility....they know that we are in US but allow this kind of environment working on their customer's product...china price=Chinese quality
