    Pros

    Engineers are well educated, younger and focused on their niche area of work. Company have competitive technology in semiconductor process which allow for integration of power semi with logic level design. Being small not too many layers of management.

    Cons

    Relartively small company, sometimes limited chance for career growth, limited range of product types.

    Advice to Management

    None
