Yes, American corporations have their issues too. Some more, some less.
New account, don't want to get fired
I'm one of their engineers, a US hire originally from Arizona. When they say we are giant babies, they mean we whine and complain a lot. We complain about the lack of training programs, because there are none. We complained due to lack of English study material, because there is none. We complain about the toxic leadership skills of our supervisors who wish to call us human filth because we have not memorized a 200 page PowerPoint regarding the introduction to a tool utilized in Etch, who openly patronize us infront of others with labels of incompetence. We complain about the ever changing policies and procedures that our Human Resources team seems to implement on a weekly basis, confusing disorienting and causing more work and headaches for us. We complain because statistically, over the last two months (Oct-Nov), someone has either quit or been fired every three days. We complain about how there is a 45-minute commute to and from work every day, and our supervisors and bosses force us to stay late. We complain because our co-workers the "Taiwan Locals" refuse to trust us after having become proficient with our work after a year or two of being here, because it might affect their PMD (Performance Based Bonuses). We complain because some of us were only supposed to be here for a year and have had our contracts be completed and forced to stay here. We complain because some of our employees from other countries have not had their visas extended or approved for work in the US yet and may have to be deported 6 months after they get in the US due to the incompetence of our HR. We complain because the company thinks it can abuse our time, our health, and our safety because we are "on their home turf" now, and their rules only apply. We complain because our HR has the audacity to be condescending when describing their plans for the future. The US hires are tired of the rainbows, and being told how great this company is and how we are the #1 this and the top 1% that, but we don't like to brag... We complain about the leaked documents that show Taiwan managers how to avoid US laws when attempting to fire those who become handicap or disabled from on the job accidents.
We complain because these are legitimate problems, and once we get back to the US, all of those engineers you spent so much time abusing, will leave your company, and you will be left with no one to train your Overstaffed Temp Office on Dunlap Who are already complaining about the temp office being packed with people.. if only someone would call the Phoenix Fire Marshal to do an inspection on floor 4 and 6.
We are tired of complaining, but we are never heard. If that makes us giant babies, then so be it.
