    Pros

    Nice people to work with and the company deals with cutting edge research in semi conductors industry.

    Cons

    Bad communication of critical issues facing the company.
    Not so optimal execution at PDF ..
    Company is scattered in tons of offices ....
    Management still thinks of PDF as the research start up they created in 1991.
    Too much for a small company to have 12 executive positions (CEO,8 VPs,CAO,CSO,CT)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PDF needs a really good reorganization and some offices consolidation

    Doesn't Recommend
