Pros

Competitive pay, good work life balance, great benefits, great people, interesting product, global, solid training, opportunity for growth and development.

Cons

Sometimes it seems the company is a little resistant to change, they want to keep things as they are. Makes it hard to get to the next level or make things happen.

Advice to Management

Open up to change, you have a lot of smart people working for the company with great ideas and experience that want to make a difference.

    Pros

    Good pay, compensation & benefits

    Cons

    1) Be dumb
    2) Good follower only don't voice out your opinions
    3) Don't do more than your peers
    4) Boss don't read email
    5) Chua Nam Tiong (the Manager) can't make decision on his own; puppet!

    Advice to Management

    As a supervisor or Boss, know your subordinate, don't listen to other envious parties feedbacks. Do your own back ground investigation before making any hasty decision. This comment is especially for supervisor Chua Nam Tiong.

    Pros

    Scrappy little company. The people there work hard. The facilities at some locations are very good and include nice little benefits like excellent espresso machines and open space to sit and collaborate.

    Cons

    This company seems to be thrashing. Disk drives are a commodity, and they really seem to need to move into the next big thing.

    Advice to Management

    Ramp up the commitment to employees. Clear out the deadwood, reward and recognize the ones you want to keep with benefits they see as motivating. Offer more learning and development opportunities for your people, and move your infrastructure at all sites into this decade.
