    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be diligent to share the vision of company with employee, and don't order inefficient work. for example, many unnecessary paper works are required by senior management.

    Pros

    Anybody can be a top engineer if they do very little effort, Or, if you want to enjoy very slow life in this company, it will be ok even you do nothing.

    Cons

    There are lots of employee who are waiting for next promotion, it means the next won't be mine.
    All of employee knows what the problems are, but managers and directors tend to ignore the problems they recognized. Decisions are always slow so they are very familiar with losing chances.
