    Incompetent management and burnt-out design engineers

    Design Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsDr. Lynn is the diamond in the goats bottom here and may be the sole competent member of management at this place. Why on earth he stays, I'll never know.

    ConsThe staff is treated second class to the management.

    The company expects employees to be in the office 50 to 60 hours a week.

    The design quality, controls, and processes are awful, and unfortunately the culture of incompetence has a firm grip. The grip is strongest among the idiot friends, in-laws, and family members on the executives that have been hired into this place.

    Advice to Senior Management1) Establish and enforce a company wide, an anti-nepotism policy that extends to contractors and suppliers
    2) Train your management to manage and don't substitute a time clock for proper team leadership. An employee working for 40 hours is a magnitude better for the company that an employee that is just present for 60 hours.
    3) Establish and enforce a strict anti-fraternizing policy, esp among executives.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    O2 micro Singapore review

    Design Engineer (Current Employee) Ang Mo Kio New Town (Singapore)

    ProsRelatively easy going working environment. Working environment is not much stress. Good health care and Dental care.

    ConsNo much information sharing, inter-department is very political. Local staff are very inexperience even though higher management do seem to be more technical capable.
    Not much recognition for good performance. Unfair compensation for some of the staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe right persons must be hired to lead, and to execute.
    More careful on hire the right people for the right job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great group of people to work with

    Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsVery friendly environment, helpful people who know the technology. Lot of support for innovation and patents.

    ConsSmall company has lot of competition and so it is difficult when economy is rough. New technology requires lot of money to be invested which is not easy for small company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with innovation and sooner or later success will come. Continue focus on what the people are good at doing. Also good to put more money in R&D.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
