    Pros

    You will wear many hats and learn many sides of the business.

    Pay is mediocre and the company is mainly a hobby business for the owner who runs it from Taiwan.

    I have been working at Promise Technology for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good for talented engineers on H1 visa or waiting for greencard. This company gets talents for cheap. If your not working, they will hire you with lower than market pay. Even not much experience, they take. Once you on board, you will do the work no one else wants.

    Cons

    At first everything seems OK, besides exploiting ppl. Later, you will find pockets of ppl who are relatives or friends of management work there too. They will have favors from mgmt. and special treatment. Unfortunately, I see lots of bias treatment for ppl of different races and groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be weak, take stand and back good ideas. Be fair to all employees. Treat them fairly, otherwise you will face many legal issues some time in the future.
