    Pros

    Has allowed a successful acquisition to remain successful, but this can easily change.

    Cons

    Seems to think in 1950s era management style. Top down, management has privilege, open office, minimum privacy. degree trumps skill, All the things that brought unions to strength are coming back.

    Pros

    - Good place to get experience in a variety of product lines
    - People work hard and try to get things done even with very little resources

    Cons

    - Doesn't really have a quality mindset. Talks the talk but not the walk
    - Very high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Yes you are a third party manufacturer but realize that if you improved quality you would save a lot of money on rework and lost customer expectations

    Pros

    A great company to work if favoritism is discouraged.

    Cons

    There is an assumption that as a Payroll Professional you must know it all. Forgetting that every company or industry has a culture and that culture and ways the job is done here is different from others.

    Advice to Management

    Discourage favoritism. Everyone should be given a chance to excel and do not believe always that the manager is right in all respect.

    Pros

    A large company with ok benefits but frankly not too much good to say

    Cons

    Lets just say that the experience has been disappointing. We cannot make up on mind on what we need or want to do, we do not pay our bills on time which results in credits holds, and Milpitas management tries to bully emplotees and contractors and consistantly blames them for delays that are the direct result of senior management mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, I doubt like will change as the buddy system is too embedded. The Silicon Valley is not a third world country and we cannot treat our employees and contractors as though is was one.

    Pros

    This is the kind of company that provides the technology and human resources to drive you thru your goals, nothing can be left on the side without achieved with success !!!

    Cons

    If you're not the kind of employee who can manage your duties and personal life apart, then , probably you should aim to a different company, this is something that you will learn in a glance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't leave the evaluation to the last minute, employees are waiting for the correct path and you're responsible for your team. success isn't achieved without a team in your back
