    Pros

    Work-life balance and good welfare. If you don't mind the slow promotion, it's a place to develop your working knowledge.

    Cons

    It's hard to be promoted, even your working raputation is quite outstanding. The executive leading managing level is not capable of creation, or planning the future trendy product lines.

    Pros

    Nice corporate culture with many fringe benefits. Although it is a bit routine, it is a good place to learn job and balance your work and life. There are many trainings, but a few of them might be related to the job. Coworkers are also nice.

    Cons

    Lacks appreciation. Pay is a bit low with very little growth each year. Too less annual leave; less than 7 days for the first year, and 7 days annually thereafter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need blue ocean strategies & more innovations to survive the stiff competition and listen more.
