    The people who do not know what they are doing are the loudest.

    Pros

    A big company making profit
    No.2 in the HDD industry

    Cons

    HDD is going downhill. No room to go higher. Eventually it will be replaced (or loose 1/2 of the market and people get laid off)
    Put too much emphasis on cost saving
    Work overtime
    Some departments are not well organized and play politics too much, people are in low moral.
    People who yell aloud "win" the game
    Mid management sucks, some of them don't know how to make important decisions. Some of them only have bachelor degree, in my opinion, a master is at least in a big company for mid management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote talent people with true ability, not those who yell aloud
    R&D new technology to survive in future
