    Pros

    Toro develops an interesting product for the mobile industry. Most colleagues are great to work with and the company is small enough to feel like you can hang out with your colleagues easily.

    The projects are interesting and it's always possible to bring your own ideas and discuss them with your team mates and managers.

    Also, the time-off policies in the Taipei office are much better than in any local Taiwanese company: 10 holidays the first year, 15 after (in Taiwanese companies, it's 0 holidays the first year, 7 after).

    Cons

    Although Toro has been created many years ago (in 2007), it still suffers from all the bad sides of a startup company, and especially the financial instabilities. Salaries are always paid late, sometimes months late.

    This could almost be acceptable if the upper management (CEO, CTO, board) communicated properly, but every time their communication strategy is a disaster. Basically, instead of planning and handling shortages of cash by communicating to the team, the management hides the bad news until the very last moment, making everyone not only very angry, but putting their employees in danger (many young people with almost no savings to survive 2-3 months without a salary).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication, communication, communication.

    Hiding the truth to the employees just make them start gossiping and not trusting the upper management anymore.
