Overwhelming feeling of employees from hourly through salary being treated as disposable parts to achieve upper management's unrealistic goals
Support from management
There is only "take" from upper management. No feedback on individual performance or progressive discipline. Arbitrary hirings and firings.
Co-workers and peers below top management work well together.
Freedom to work independently
No choice but to work independently with the poor communication from above. Take your chances!
Improving from a dismal level. Communication network and timing very poor. Some improvements, however.
Gender Equality did not appear to be an issue.
Overall compensation for your work
Office / Work Environment
Facilities and air quality very poor. Production started well before the proper facilities (bathrooms, wash basins, etc.) were in place. Air quality in the workplace was very poor from generators and construction equipment.
Not much regard for the environment.
Constant turnover and difficulty hiring replacements generate a huge work and stress load on those that are left
Arbitrary dismissals, no feedback on performance, poor communication, HR just acts on upper management direction with no oversight.
Accessibility was still under construction
Production first, safety later.
Never a dull day.
Inclusive / Diverse
Generally, there was a strong feeling that persons of Asian descent were much more likely to be hired. However, there did not seem to be resistance to other ethnicities, just a preference to those of Asian descent.
Suggestions for improvement
- Much more regard for employees at all levels. Installation of a system of review and feedback so that employees feel valued and informed. The poor image in the labor community needs to be reversed in a hurry. Realistic goals need to be set.
What I like about the company
Well equipped plant with lofty expectations. Decent wages and benefits.
What I dislike about the company
Proclaims to be an American company owned by Chinese. However, actions suggest otherwise. Very little regard for the huge stress and workload on the employees that remain employed. Arbitrary dismissals and unrealistic goals. All resources put to uphold upper management's unrealistic promises instead of starting a factory in the proper way.
