1) Just how high can you take your efficiency in Corps, is there a point where it is no longer worth upgrading efficiency ?
2) How high do you need to take salaries in corp to max their productivity ... again is there any point taking it over 200 for salary ... or 300 or what ever
3) Any other tips for maximising your corp value,
I am in dire need of help although have 97.5% employment Thanks

Well i think as high as 250% efficency and quality.
500% for salaries is the absolute upper limit.
Set youre trade strategies if you have a quality at 150 and the red bar is full that means more demand so you can probably put 100% and reducing by 20% per month and you get more revenues that way. If its green go a bit below to get the goods out quickly

260 is the max on both efficency and quality, which when you are looking at the corp home page equates to 200/200.
Trade is something which will draw arguement other than just about everyone will generally agree that using best price to either buy or sell is not the way to go.
If food products are what you are having trouble selling and the supply is short .. then best price can work to your advantage short-term.
On fully upgraded corps with material in short supply you can (very rarely) get more than 150% MU if alot of countries are buying on an immediate purchase order.
However you don't know when you can get this until you do and in the long run you are better off with a trade strategy
I use a mark-up for selling as follows:
Quality - 100 = Mark-up
If a product doesn't sell in the first month I lower it by 10% each month until it does sell.
My buying strategy is set to -10 (which equates to 10% above market) and 10 (which raises the bid 10% each month the purchase order has not been met.
Unless you are contracting your product don't worry about shortages unless you see production drop. Most generally supplies will be met for the majority of your needs.
If a corp is in a country with salaries less than 130 and no upgrades, then quality and efficiency will drop somewhat.
As a rule of thumb if a corp can't sell 100% of it's product at 30% markup then it's got a very hard row to hoe ...
So get salaries to 130 min. The quality of the supplies your country purchases effects your quality also .. garbage in = garbage out. Although it more noticable to me on the high or low end of your upgrades.
