    Pros

    We worked under the direction of the chief engineer and he was really experienced and always can give us some advice on the problems we met.

    The office was near the assemble stream and the noise was harassing.

    maybe they can pay more attention to their low level employees.

    Pros

    There are some nice people in the marketing and finance departments who come to work to do their job and who are very professional too.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? This place is run by bullies. They insult coworkers regularly and gossip is rampant. They set up people to fail if they don't like them and talking loudly and swearing is common here. And if you are bold enough to speak up to management it gets worse. Ironically you have to take a harassment course when you start working there and everything they say they will not tolerate...is tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take IMMEDIATE actions towards bullies and protect people that are there to work and be professional. Don't close your doors and allow it because that person has been there for a long time. And then when someone comes to you for support PLEASE back them up with the appropriate action and please let it remain anonymous so that person is not subject to more retaliation.
