    Pros

    They offer competitive salary comparing to others; Work hours is flexible; There is annual company activity for people to relax and talk to each other;

    Cons

    there is no office for any engineer, just cubes which are very close to each other so that sometimes it is not quiet.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, it would be great to set up office for engineers. And it would be good to adjust the policy of financial support for technical conference attendance.

    Pros

    Nice team to work with. Flexibility on what to do and how to schedule. Interesting, challenging and promising technology fields.

    Cons

    Senior leaders have no clear visions. The strategies of conducting R&D are too naive, i.e. over complicated with a 3D mesh.

    Advice to Management

    Consumer devices need not only engineering but also art. Don't work on any box towards consumers' home, ever; Invest and work directly with Internet video service providers.

  6. Chaotic management

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Friendly atmosphere and no need to play a lot of politics as a technical person. Capable middle management.

    Cons

    Senior management is chaotic and incompetent, and does not have much credibility with the employees. Not as professional as you would expect from a mature company. Little transparency, although ironically "transparency" is labeled as one of company's core values.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Have the guts to remove people who can not do the job.

    Pros

    Team work and friendliness. There are challenges and opportunities. Interesting work on leading edge technologies. Multinational company. Mobility and travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Salaries are below average. There are no compensation packages. Difficult to promote. The company has gone through a deep finantial crisis.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation (salary, bonuses, stocks, etc.) and opportunities to promote. Titles and career ladder should be more clear.

  8. This is a company going downward.

    Pros

    Princeton is a nice location to live. The house is more affordable than other cities with more similar jobs. The school districts in neighboring townships, including Plainsboro, South Brunswick, West Windsor and Montgomery are all high ranked. With NYC just one hour away, one can enjoy the city life without the hassle of living in a big city. Beaches are also just one hour away and are excellent for summer weekends.

    As a part of an international company, it has connection with other sites in China, France and other European countries. Employees have chances to get to know the working styles of other countries.

    Cons

    The company has not been successful in branding itself in the United States. When introducing the company to others, they may think about Thomson Financial, Thompson Real Estate, Thomson xxx, etc. Before RCA was sold, one good way was to indicate that RCA was owned by Thomson. Now I have to try Grass Valley, Technicolor, PRN, one by one to see if any of these brands sounds familiar.

    There are many products available from Thomson, but very few are leading products in their fields. Also with so many directions, it is hard to tell where the company is heading to.

    Advice to Management

    Every time a site was opened and then closed, it came at a cost of losing employees who weren't willing to relocate. It also sent the signals to other employees that the decisions, even from very high management level, might be not serious at all.
