Answer: Fuyao Glass entered in 2014 5. Who were the managers in the factory initially and later (American/Chinese)? Describe their management styles. Answer: Initially, the Americans were the managers of the factory. However, later on, the Chinese became the managers. Comparing to the American’s management styles, the Chinese’s is autocratic and bossier and stricter toward the employees. They make all the decisions and does not care about the employee’s opinions. In addition, they don’t care how employees feel and they place meeting requiring quantity as a priority. There is no appreciation or sympathy for employee’s hard works as well as their struggles. Also, the Chinese managers don’t support union workers, and he is more than willing to fire those labor union supporters. In contrast, the American manager seem to support labor union more, and he even said that during the speech. In overall, Chinese’s management styles are definitely colder and more ruthless compared to the American’s 6. What were some of the challenges in this factory? Answer: the first challenge is cultural clash. Since American’s culture and Chinese’s are very different, they have different opinions of many things e.g how to deal with conflicts, how people treat each other, how freedom is a right in America but not in China…, thus, it created some conflicts between Chinese and American employees. In the documentary, it clearly shows how American and Chinese deal with conflicts differently, and this is partly because their cultures are different. When there was something wrong happened with the production, the American employee think of solutions of how to fix it whereas the Chinese employees focused on whose fault was it. This thus demonstrated how difference in culture create conflicts. The second challenge is language barrier. The CEO constantly needs a translator as well as the manager. It is time-consuming to keep translating as it will decrease the productivity of the factory. It will also costly to hire a translator and it is not worth it. Because of language barrier, it could also mean that the employees will easily have conflicts as there will be more misunderstanding in terms of directions and communication. Another challenge that I observed is employees have different opinions of how the job should be done (quantity versus quality). For example, the Chinese care way too much about meeting the requiring quantity whereas the Americans care more about creating quality glasses. This thus creates difficulties and challenges for the factory.

Answer: In term of similarity, both the safety standards of Fuyao Glass in China and the safety standard of Fuyao glass in the U.S are low.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
