Pros

You will be responsible for everything - right from inception to delivery. You will own, design and deliver modules which includes unit testing and integration. You will be noticed and acknowledged if you take initiative.

Cons

If you don't take initiative, then chances are that you may be given work that you may not like or enjoy. You probably will not be involved in the decision making process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management could do with encouraging and / or helping engineers take initiative and play to their strengths

    Pros

    Lots to learn about the satellite communication industry.
    You get to do more than you think. a good experience learned here.
    Some good smart colleagues around.

    Cons

    Some Managers/directors act like kids driving engineers to leave the place.
    Unfairness and disrespect to employees.
    HR department is not for the employees. I feel the place like a big gangster company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the company growth first before your personal growth.
    Put a process and follow it for god's sake.
    Be fair on applying your promotion guidelines on all employees.
    If 5 engineers left in less than a year complaining about a director. Most likey they are right HR!
