    Pros

    Very organized company, well-documented, good training for people who want to learn from the industry; great working environment and good team.

    Problem with the marketing & business development strategy with the big industrial environment... product is difficult to expand due to commoditized by other competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more flexible, be more proactive with the business, should focus more on cost-down of the sourcing and marketing strategy, not focus on employee reduction.

    Pros

    Good vacation time, reasonable pay
    Stay here if you are waiting to retire and want an easy life

    Cons

    NO future, No goals, Yearly review is a joke, your boss doesnt even know what you are doing.
    Middle management is totally useless and incompetent, and has no power.
    But the worst things in this place in San jose are :
    1) this is the 1st company I work that count your hours every week and we are not paid by hours!
    2) Biasness to its fullest! Top management pick the people based on race and their own favorite to be promoted, not based on their performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget it.

    Pros

    They have some latest design works going on in their field of business. Nice to work if you want to learn something new.

    Cons

    Career growth will be a dead end if you choose to stay there. Seems like there had been no increase in compensation and thats the main reason I quit. They give a damn about employees. As long as they get the work done from you, they remind us to be thankful for giving a job. No perks, no bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly consider that employees are humans and not some automatic production machines.
