    Pros

    The company seems to prefer younger folks than the older. Very exciting in a sense that there's always a lot to do and learn if you want to.

    Cons

    There's a high turnover. Many people burn out. Productivity is placed so high that management takes a long time to fill an empty opening.

    Advice to Management

    Please fill a vacant spot sooner so that the rest can balance work and life. It will improve productivity and creativity.

  2. Poor opportunities for low-level employees promotion.

    Pros

    The products sound still good. Stocks are still good compared to some other companies.

    Cons

    Low salary. Values of lower-level employees are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional. Don't self-feel too good.
