    I worked at SAIC Motor as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really liked that I was able to experience working culture of a Chinese company based in Shanghai. Everyone was friendly and I did get to look at the South African market in detail which I liked.

    Cons

    I didn't like how many decisions were made from the top with little ways for entry level position to make an impact. Most things were predetermined and I did not feel that what I did mattered.

    Advice to Management

    Involve everyone in the decision making process and be more transparent!

    I have been working at SAIC Motor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A good general manager (Mr. Zhang Hailiang, not Liu Jian).
    When the company has a good sale in the previous year, employers could get their monthly salary doubled.

    Cons

    Overtime work is encouraged in many departments.
    Many employers get the jobs by relationships but not their abilities.

    Advice to Management

    The party leader has a big influence on every aspect of the company. Of course it is a joint venture between SAIC (Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation) and Volkswagen AG Germany.
