    Pros

    Great people
    Innovative engineering
    Cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Constant layoffs
    Constant change of direction from upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot change directions multiple times on product development cycles that are as long as they are in the ATE industry. Use your MBA and PREDICT where the market will be and the STICK to your prediction. You might be wrong, but otherwise you will simply bankrupt the shareholders.
