    Pros

    Management has clear vision for engineering services in contract manufacturing. Most managers are highly experienced former engineers. Good mix of projects to make it interesting.

    Cons

    Not big enough to compete with some larger companies and work on the latest technologies.

    Pros

    It got multiple customer bases across different industries. You may expose to multiple functions as the company scale is not big.

    Cons

    You probably won't grow in this company as it's a very financial driven company and no much training opportunity. You will end up with contributing and no gaining in terms of career growth.

    Pros

    Some good people to work with, good financially stable company

    Cons

    No company driven employee development opportunities, critical areas such as corporate supply chain and corporate IT staff are severely understaffed, lack of leadership and vision at executive levels, employees have responsibility with no authority

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the S.M.A.R.T. method for goal setting, too many goals are not Specific or Measurable. Invest more headcount in critical areas such as corporate IT and supply chain to turn them into competitive advantages instead of "necessary evils".
