    Pros

    The company has great technology and people. New blood in executive management are bringing some great ideas and energy to the company. Company is going through some really positive changes.

    Cons

    Some unsophisticated and outdated processes and weird regulations. Doesn't pay that well. Old Chinese culture means work/life balance could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay me more.

    one of the valley's walking dead companies

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fremont, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    they had an advantaged technology in imaging, have tried many alternative markets to capitalize on the technology, the technology team in China had developed leading edge imaging technologies in the past but how to capitalize it beyond the smartphone market?

    Cons

    management, that is really just the ceo, is totally unfocused, no senior management supporting team, confusing office policies, no growth potential for the us staff (come to think of it, no growth potential for the entire company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    after about 20 years in business, it's probably time to sell off the technology, maybe even make a few bucks on the options, let's call it a day!

    Smart, innovative company, good place to work

    • Senior Management

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fremont, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    Very smart people, hardworking and dedicated, interesting, fun and useful products, every day is different

    Cons

    is a 20 word minimum in this space so I'm just going to fill up the space by saying that this is a good place to work! One drawback: the BART station is pretty far so you have to drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This office could really benefit from an interior design update. Such smart people such great products, but kind of a dull workspace. Perhaps it would help to open up the space to allow for greater collaboration/communication.

    Pros

    Good relationship between department employees and their direct managers.
    Ability to move horizontally within the company.
    Benefits package is very generous.
    Montly luncheons and weekly breakfasts make for good employee bonding.
    Reponsive HR department.
    CEO is extremely friendly and respectful towards employees.
    Business casual attire and good company culture where everyone seems to get along and like to have lunches together.

    Cons

    Some departments are not stable due to constant reshuffling/reorganizing of staff. Hopefully, they will work that out.
    Not much ethnic diversity. 90% of the demographic is Chinese.
    Few people are riding on a high horse.
    Departments are segregated and don't like to collaborate with one another.
    Customer service lines are always overflowing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach departments the meaning of teamwork by encouraging them to work with other departments. Break down the walls.
    Hire more people to take customer service calls.
    Encourage higher learning to strengthen the knowledge of your workforce.
