    Pros

    company makes sure employees are wearing masks

    Cons

    Non production workers should allow to work from home to prevent human interaction. Job can be done from outside of the office. Shouldn't increase chances of spreading Covid virus by coming into the office.

    Pros

    Big cubicles and breakfast provided. Work load is ok.

    Cons

    Work schedule not flexible. During the pandemic, we are required to work in the office. Managers pick favorites and performance review is ridiculous because it is not based on your performance but on whether you are favored.

    I have been working at Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Supermicro) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company sells state of the art products and has amazing people supporting them. The people are very genuine and people are very helpful. Benefits are generally good. You don't have to pay for long term or short term disability which is very unusual.

    Cons

    My only issue with this company is the lack of self esteem, in that a lot of people complain about the company for things that are really not so bad. I came to the company knowing this and so far I haven't found much merit in the complaints even though it's true that some of the processes are archaic. Although the benefits are good, there is no 401k match and there ought to be. Also the vacation is lacking - 10 days plus the requirement to take a bunch of holidays that some people would rather be working on (such as MLK day, 24th Dec and day after Thanksgiving). There are also limited sick days. I'd rather see them added to vacation and be given discretionary sick days up to, say, a week or two weeks, after which short term disability would kick in.
