Pros

Talented engineers and a good working working environment. Information within local branch can be shared verbally and assistance is provided when dealing with difficult issues.

Cons

This is company that has been plaqued by leading the race in new HDMI feature introduction rather than actual sustenance of product sales. Job responsibility is spread too wide. It is essentially a startup company in guise of a public one. Management is heavily dependent on execution rather than getting the job right. Upper management seems to think that IP is more valuable than employee contribution. Priorities and project management is a joke, all projects have deadlines within the same time period. Some departments have too many line level managers. Hardly any proposition for job improvement laterally or vertically.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees. Get a real Product Management and Marketing team.
