    I worked at CyberLink full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The Santa Clara sales office consist of friendly people that is willing to help with any questions you have. If you work there, you would need to be willing to take various roles or responsibilities. Your growth in the company depends mainly from your effort to learn.

    Cons

    Internal processing (from HQ) can hinder the growth process in US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit/restructure products to meet different customers/markets.

    I have been working at CyberLink

    Pros

    - ISV leader in PC OEM business, but PC industry is weak
    - Talented and hard working engineers. Great support team in Taiwan
    - Colleagues are hard working

    A Taiwanese company run like a small cap company with 100 employees. Top exec oversees every little detail.

    Cons

    - Too cheap
    - Traditional ways of management, found back in the 1960s
    - clueless on marketing and branding in the US
    - Control freaks

    One of the mission statement goals is FRUGALITY. This says it all!! CL admits they are cheap. Promotions are non-existent unless you slave away 12-14 hours a day and listen to CEO's wishes 100%.

    For marketing, uses strange English names to market English locales or incorrect words to market to European locales. Top execs don't listen to those in charge of their locale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and learn to trust employees' talents and nurture them. It's only 1 way or the highway.

    People are nice but everyone seems to be going in their own direction with little communication.

    I have been working at CyberLink

    Pros

    Great product with amazing potential. Good benefits and salary. You have the ability to work independently. Co workers are helpful.

    Cons

    No clear direction from management. Very high turnover and unrealistic expectations from employees and the market. They motivate by fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the amazing talent that is already available and reduce turnover. The high turnover is creating credibility issues in the market.
