    Pros

    Industry leading technology, business savvy executives, talented engineering teams led by experienced subject matter experts in their field. Opportunity to work with tier 1 technology customers. Opportunity also for growth, reward and experience in both domestic and international markets.

    Cons

    Opportunity and growth outpacing staffing which can create challenges to keep up. Learning curve can be steep if lack domain knowledge, but worth the effort.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus efforts on adding key people in sales engineering, sales and support.

    Pros

    - Company-supplied hardware for development - Convenient location in Raffles Place - Pays market rate in Singapore

    Cons

    HR: - The CEO repeatedly yells, swears, and insults the employees - On multiple occassions, employees were fired out of the CEO's anger, only to be rehired the next day - Threats of firing ensue with each product deadline Engineering: - Legacy C++ codebase, lots of unsafe APIs and code duplication - No clear seniority, as most engineers are completely inexperienced - Terrible work-life balance; expected 9-6, most are there much longer, including midnight (3 hour long) Skype calls with customers - Has been sinking for a decade, due to the staffing choices - Most of the work is outsourced to Bangladesh - There is very limited code testing (some functional, no unit) - There is no review process - There is no culture, no comradery

    Advice to Management

    At this point, you have a basket of rotten apples. Restaffing is the only way that you can be sane and the company can progress toward any notion of a sane software shop.
