    Pros

    Work life balance
    Blue Sky Friday once every month
    Team building and other activities are encouraged
    Adequately talented people to work with

    If you are looking for stable career with well-defined career path, family friendly workplace and does not mind a bit of red tapes, then this is the place for you. There is day care center right close to the building for those with children. People are generally friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Too many red tapes ( installation of new program on machines take along time to approved etc )
    Staff in department that I worked are overloaded with work. need more headcounts
