Pros

Location - Malibu is an amazing place to work.
Colleagues - a very well educated and professional staff
Projects - the research performed here is on the cutting edge
Small company - easy to find people when you need to get things done

Cons

Can be difficult at the entry-level, as average experience level of staff is very high
Small company means fewer 'extras' and a less diverse crowd of coworkers

Advice to Management

Encourage interaction, especially among younger/newer hires, across lab and project lines. This will make it easier for them to collaborate later in their career when they find themselves on the same projects or requiring one another's help.

    Pros

    Beautiful working area, people are nice. Not too much pressure. Every engineer is working on more than one project at the same time.

    Cons

    funding is very important. Sometime, if funding is short, you won't get paid. Lots of lazy guys. They never work except talking. Lots of meetings every day. most meeting just waste of time
