    Pros

    There's a lot of opportunity to try and better the current situation. Direct managers are sympathetic to their employees and always willing to listen and try to better the situation. The company has potential for greatness.

    Cons

    Aptina's spirit is one of - "Whats wrong with the employees". A constant but steady stream of negative hyper attention flows from the highest management down to every employee. There is no time to better any situation because the entire company spends all of it's time yelling, "Put out the FIRE" and no one calms down enough to find the fire extinguisher. The employees do not have the severely needed time or tools to mature to a proficient level since everything is chaos and budget cutting. Engineers are asked to take on a multitude of products simultaneously while getting constantly nagged at for faster results. Goals set by management are far from realistic and any time spent innovating the current situation is frowned upon. The company tends to chase it's tail and shoot itself in the foot many times over again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill-out.. Let the company mature into a proficient profitable machine. Great things don't happen over-night and trying to get apple juice from green apples gives you a bitter after-taste. If juice is in short supply grow more trees (hire more people!).
