    Pros

    Huge bonuses. Focused company. The Taiwanese (HQ) management is excellent. Number one in every market they play in. Aggressive and successful.

    Cons

    Commitment to US sites is questionable. Many engineers in HQ are not interested in working with us. No opportunity for career advancement as all new hires are supposed to be industry veterans (~25 years of experience). Local issues with morale, attrition, staleness of ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Need a vision that shows value to company.
