Pros

Great management team, great people,

Cons

politics between department, communication between mid level management from different department needs improvement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just look at the numbers and bars on the presentation slide prepared by a bunch of MBAs, understand the problem from a more techanical perspective is the key to continuous improvement

    Pros

    Stable job and good co-workers

    Cons

    Middle managers do not support their staff. They just take care of themselves. Inner circle gets excellent compensations with stock options and bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of incompetent directors and managers who stifle the company.
