Pros

Sierra Wireless has hommization management. It respects for employee of the development of the ideal, and provides wide-range development space.

Cons

First, Sierra Wireless has high operating costs, especially compare with Huawei, ZTE etc. Second, Sierra Wireless can't provide competitive salary, so it's hard to hire excellent employees.

Advice to Management

Try to make a difference, provide special value for customer, focus on the high-profit niche markets, avoid price war with Huawei and ZTE etc.

    Pros

    Learning wireless technology at a detailed level Top engineering talent, good program managers Senior management makes careful, well-reasoned decisions Good health benefits Good team environment within engineering

    Cons

    Weak compensation increases across the board, even with positive performance reviews Limited career growth for engineering. Nearly all executives come from up from sales or marketing ranks. Company is conservative about going into new areas of wireless. Usually doesn't pull the trigger until a competitor already has something in the market. Doesn't invest incompletely new areas of technology, always building on the last stuff incrementally.


  2. A good starting point. Career growth limited
