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

    Pros

    Everyone's friendly. HR really values the employees.

    Cons

    Hardly any pay raises. They don't give you a promotion to help motivate you. Instead they just add more duties that definitely were not in the job description.

    Advice to Management

    A promotion will help employees feel special and feel motivated to tackle on the extra responsibilities.

    I worked at ViewSonic full-time

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere
    James Chu is a marketing genius with an incredible memory for everything

    Cons

    No advancement
    Heavy Chinese management (if you are an American, you will never advance)
    Poor product quality (they don't make their own stuff)
    Management likes to micro-manage everything
    Management believes that it is okay to save face

    Advice to Management

    James Chu should replace all of the other managers. Just pick a name from the phonebook - odds are that they will be better than what you have now.

    Pros

    Good working environment. Laid back culture at the Chino location, Brea office is different. People are nice and helpful. Free water and coffee.

    Cons

    HR doe not take suggestions seriously. Huge disconnect between corporate office and warehouse personnel. No raises or reviews periodically and without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Share knowledge of information with employees relating to lack of reviews. Profit sharing is not equal among employees.

    Pros

    Fast paced company with success driven employees made the work interesting and
    provided many opportunities to learn new skills and the benefits were great.

    I really do not see any cons. Company keeps up its side of the bargain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work the company must thrive measures are not always easy..

    I worked at ViewSonic full-time

    Pros

    Can learn a lot about many different roles in a sort period of time
    Benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    HR team is in upper management's pocket
    The company is failing because upper management doesn't know how to run a company.
    No room for advancement
    You will do many different roles but you will not be asked you will be told to do it without title change or an increase
    Pay is poor
    Raises are poor or nonexistent
    Everyday your hair is on fire and something must get done NOW there is no forethought for anything.
    ViewSonic won't be around much longer with the way things are running

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs a revamp
    Allow your great employees to do what they were hired to do
    Don't micromanage if you have no idea what you are doing and do not understand the process
    Value your employees and show them they are valued
    Pay your employees what they are worth and stop using so many outside agencies and you might save a little money

    I have been working at ViewSonic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly open workplace, flex hours and telecommuting available. Opportunity to take real ownership of your position and duties. Not much micromanaging. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    No consistent strategy or direction. Opinions dominate decision-making rather than real facts and figures. No accountability for underperformers. Expectation to do more with less. Below market value salary. Too much complacency with long-tenured employees. Lots of talk about progress and moving forward but no action taken. No respect for process or procedure.

    Advice to Management

    Be advocates for your employees and be sincere about their well being personally and professionally.

    "This company is headed out of business. A status they have worked hard to earn."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There is a concerted effort in management to mislead the owner who lives overseas regarding a number of key problems they are unwilling to resolve. The pro is he is still buying the misrepresentations they are providing him. The con is once he wises up the company will be dissolved and parted out for scrap.

    Cons

    The management team (Director to CEO) is the worst in the industry. Terrible self-serving decisions and unethical force outs of employees who threaten the old guard left the company losing 80% of its volume in a few short years careening towards insolvency.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say bring in professional consultants to fix the management stagnation issues but the problems have lingered for too long and the company is far past it's breaking point.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, everyone always comes together like a family and works on meeting the task at hand.

    Cons

    There is no advancement available in the company; if your not close to upper management or married to them then your stuck where you are.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to hire laterally and look at the people at the bottom that WANT to move up.
