    Approves of CEO

    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

    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.
