Worst company I ever worked for.
Server Testing/Debug/Repair (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAApril 6, 2018
Only ended up at FOXCONN thru company acquisition.They pride themselves on not laying off employees.That is because most qualified people will quit and move on to other companies.Whats left is unqualified ,mostly temp,workers. Any competent workers that are left get over loaded with responsibilities,and even with below average pay, no chance of raises or promotion.Most of the middle management is weak in that they don't speak up for the employees.Upper management runs everything like a dictatorship i.e yelling at middle management, banging on tables and wall during meetings and giving explanations for changes like "because I said so". How this place stays in business I don't know.I strongly recommend NOT seeking employment here or using the as a CM.
Pros
none
Cons
all

Trash
Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 29, 2018
This was more of a slave warehouse, no benefits of anything, supervisors were strict to a certain extend, unable to have any good moral, the location closed down due to manager being caught stealing.

Very routing job function
Quality Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 5, 2018
The job function is very routing, and lack of competition. For people who only want to have a stable job and don't need a very moderate salary, Foxconn might be a good choice.

But for people who wants to achieve better goal, and enhance the self-value, Foxconn won't be the first option. The promotion and salary increase mechanism is not solid at all. And not much professional skills needed.
Pros
Stable and have insurance and 401k
Cons
Low salary and not much grow up opportunity

Manifested incompetency
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Plainfield, INFebruary 7, 2018
Management doesn't listen to employees and is so disconnected from the actual process as to have no idea of what is happening on the production floor.

Most new employees, even at management level, only last a couple months.
Cons
Filthy, dangerous, discriminatory

Associate (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 22, 2018
Not the best job if you want peace. People love to be in your business. They steal personal information from their associates, and sell it for their own purposes.

QC (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 31, 2017
Test Tech had a nice postion, pay was okay for entry level, but steady place to be employed. You could learn how to solder & fully test a repair in Server board mostly HP. Furthermore people that come through the warehouse, have to wait 3 to 5 years to make it as a Test tech.
Pros

Cons
Advancement was minimul, medium pay rate.

A Great Place to Start Your Career
Manufacturing Planner (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 29, 2017
- compensation was terrible, however you will gain a lot of experience and knowledge as well as mental strength that you can apply in your next career
- employees are expected to lend company support every weekend as well as during the end of the quarter; work life balance is a foreign term at FoxConn and has zero meaning
- 401k is available after 1 year of service
- rarely are people terminated

Overall, FoxConn is a great place for those looking to launch their career immediately upon receiving a degree. Having a family and working at FoxConn will be very difficult due to a lack of work life balance as mentioned above. Not a lot of time is spent on training staff members properly, so expect to problem solve daily.

A good enviroment
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 21, 2017
I enjoyed working at Foxconn, The people from supervisor to manager were helpful and always there if need be. I learned alot and got exposure to alot of other fields. The only disadvantage id that they would send you home if there is not work, my communiting time is about an 45 minutes so it was not nice way to send employees back home if no work, sometimes you get a call that there is no work so dont come.
Pros
good enviroment
Cons
small breaks not enough time to have dinner or lunch
