    I have been working at ViXS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has very friendly environment and flexible work hours. There are always new projects which provide engineers more challenges and opportunities of learning. It has supportive and discerning supervisors and lots of enthusiastic engineers. Hardworking is always rewarded here.

    Cons

    The company needs more featured products. It now manages to keep leading not only in techniques but also in marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to be more determined sometimes. Though brilliant ideas are always needed, sticking on selected projects and resisting from the temptation of easy success are also necessary. Otherwise, hardworking from engineers may not always bring good harvests.
