    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits are not bad, although they could be improved. Every designer had good chances to learn and to deploy new design techniques.
    Training are offered regularly.

    Cons

    Time for completing a design is becoming shorter and shorter and sometime to get these targets the work is becoming very hard. Quality of results are lower than expected.
    Few career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management
