    Pros

    decent work life balance depending on your business unit, willing to hire fresh graduates. Plenty of opportunity to learn the basics for your next job

    Cons

    pay is not good, designs are not challenging. They seem to be surviving on churning out basic iterations of basic designs while holding on to legacy business that

    Advice to Management

    Get into areas that are not as overserved, instead of like switching converters and USB chargers and the like. Engineers are treated OK but sometimes overworked as they are not willing to hire more.
