    3. Very fast pace environment (almost no time to learn)
    4. Layoff, bonus and salary reductions since 2014

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the pressure, and increase the benefits, otherwise you will loose your smart engineers. They are your assets, so stay competitive and keep them happy.
