    I have been working at Wistron (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A job that was to be two to three months long has reached over four years. Was able to Health Insurance, go to school and buy a second car because of this job.

    Cons

    Just at this location, the lack of hours. But knew it was going to be this way from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    None. Has been so helpful. I have learned a lot about being an office clerk.

    I have been working at Wistron full-time

    Pros

    Works on cutting edge mobile products for recognizable brands
    Has fully established and operational manufacturing plants
    Has very good working relationship with vendors

    Cons

    Too many levels of approval are required to make any decisions
    Doesn't always keep its employees informed of movements or future plans

    Advice to Management

    Shore up the decision-making process on the corporate level so no impulsive decisions get made while also preventing corporate gridlock where no decisions get made for months on end

    I worked at Wistron (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone worked as one team; lots of positive, collaborative thinking going on; there is the conviction that the company can develop any consumer electronic product (mobile devices in this case); high quality products were delivered on time and on budget

    Cons

    The product road map changed constantly which made it difficult to perform long term resource planning and to be efficient with resource utilization. Team faced serious difficulties with planning and developing complex technologies requiring significant international coordination efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Increase marketing efforts in North America. Lock on stable, large customers to provide more stability in work load and in revenues. Better integrate project management activities in between sites

  10. "Great Organization not sure of its place in bigger picture"

    Former Employee - Engineer in Rolling Meadows, IL

    Pros

    Great talented personnel- from bottom to top
    Pleasant, small-team atmosphere
    Ability to learn, apply knowledge,and work on some pretty cool things
    Facility close to public transportation
    Seems immediate management tries to respect work-life balance

    Cons

    As a contact manufacturer, cost is king. Penny pinching can be frustrating, when it is done for short-sighted goals.
    As a satellite office, the needs and capabilities of the site does not seem to be inline with what HQ thinks it should (or should not) be. This impacts things like ability to do job effectively and work-life balance.
