    Work is interesting and products are cool
    Smart coworkers

    Cons

    Slow growth if you are not an attention grabber or a great talker but simply a quiet do-er
    Too many meetings!
    No bonuses or great perks

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to identify and give credit to people who are good performers but dont broadcast it well.

    Pros

    Smaller size company versus some other major players in the market, strong device portfolio.

    Cons

    Inability to deviate for project timelines when major issues arise that cause significant design changes, even when these design changes will improve effectiveness of product.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for product design team to actually design the appropriate device, versus hitting a time to market deadline.
