    I worked as a Hardware Board level Design Engineer

    Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Mysore (India)

    ProsAverage age of Employees is about 25-30

    Very dynamic and friendly work Environment, never a dull moment!

    Many lateral and vertical growth opportunities

    and oh! awesome roof top cafeteria.

    All team members usually go together for tea/coffee/snacks/lunch...

    I had the best time working here.. I quit to pursue graduate school.

    ConsSometimes you need to stay late and work,

    but I wouldn't say its a bad thing especially when all team members are with you working... you just don't realize how long you have been working

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
