    Pros

    Possess really smart, professional and senior engineers, and core hardware technologies of SoC. Health care covered well and colleagues are grossly kind, easy-going and helpful

    Cons

    As a junior engineer in team, unclear responsibility reporting mechanism. It is not a modern entrepreneur's culture, but to say workshop's style.

    I worked at ViXS

    Pros

    It is really not bad for new immigrant. Because it is very hard to get first professional experience in Canada.

    Cons

    But the payment is quite low comparing to other company. And because lots of OT there, you have no time to accompany your faimily.
