    Pros

    In NewportMediaInc there is a very huge opprtunity to learn and acquire new skills. You get to work on a cutting edge technology. There are also financial compensations when a job is well done.

    Cons

    There is not much of a change to grow career-wise. The SW team is not very big. Sometime work is stressful and requires too much extra working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Managerial hierarchy is not followed correctly. Your boss's boss can assign you tasks directly without even refering to your direct manager. Sometimes you don't even know to whom you should report back.
