    Pros

    Active company, large R&D team for such a small company, it had a very friendly working environment. People are focused on solving the problems. It is a very fast developing company.

    Cons

    The company do not provide great compensation; And there are lots of competition from other companies. More and more companies joined into this field. It is harder to keep the technology advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put eggs into one basket. And provide more appealing compensations to the employees in order to attract more talented people to join in the company.
