    Pros

    HTC is at time a fun place to work. Snacks and beverages are provided for staff, along with catering for holidays and parties. Other staff are also friendly.

    Cons

    There is a lot of reorganization taking place inside the structure of the company. This, coupled with many decisions coming from executives in Taiwan leads to ambiguity. It can feel defeating feeling as though people who have never met you control your future.

    Pros

    - Lots of talented people trying to make really awesome phones
    - People are willing to work hard to deliver
    - A really unique culture blending the east (HQ in Taiwan) and the west (Design & Marketing in the US) where you get to see a company operate in a different mindset and assumptions

    Cons

    - You could be working very long hours and very hard but still not get the results you want
    - There are enough times where the most rational decisions are not pursued
    - Future plans and long term vision constantly fluctuate

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in great people
    - Trust the great people
    - Communicate to the great people

    Pros

    truly international place to work. A lot of travel to Taipei and across US. You get to work on cool stuff which matters.

    Cons

    Pretty much all the pros are the cons. You have to travel to get things done. You have to be agile complete agile because things change daily.

    Advice to Management

    More communication would be great. More trust to let people do their jobs would be great.
