    I worked at O2Micro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, helpful people who know the technology. Lot of support for innovation and patents.

    Cons

    Small company has lot of competition and so it is difficult when economy is rough. New technology requires lot of money to be invested which is not easy for small company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with innovation and sooner or later success will come. Continue focus on what the people are good at doing. Also good to put more money in R&D.

    Pros

    Team members are very knowledgeable, friendly, and supportive. Team to Team communication is also very helpful. Green environment, easy commute, good parking.

    Since it is mandatory to communicate with Asia offices, some day you can finish your job after 7 PM, or even after 8 PM.

    Employee education. Recently it was improved, but it is never enough.

    Pros

    Work load not as heavy as compare to other similar nature company. Working hour are very flexible. Most of the senior management are overseas.

    Cons

    But there wouldn't be much of a future as the design center only have about 10 over designers, mostly junior level. As O2 expand strongly in China, it is a matter of time the design center will be closed.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
