    Pros

    Management is very attentive, listens to concerns. Tries to give everyone the learning curve.

    Cons

    Not a lot of interaction amongs employees. They seem to stay in their cubicles and let the day slip away.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing!


  3. Get to learn a lot from experienced folks, but movement within the company is difficult.

    Pros

    1) Experience of colleagues helps learn a lot.
    2) Freedom to communicate & help beyond your own team.

    Cons

    Managment is not nimble. Takes a long time to make decision. Some amount of red-tape.
    Office culture is laid back in most teams but not all.

    Advice to Management

    Work like a start-up. Provide better compensation to engineers to work hard and smart.

    Pros

    Very stable, minimal to no layoffs. Good incentives.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promotion, limited advancement opportunities unless switch department. Very rare promotion within the ranks.Most higher positions vacancies are filled by people outside company instead of promotion within ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide clearer career path advancement so that employees felt a sense of achievement. Most people don't want to be stuck in same position or at least a simple title change to motivate employees letting them know they have achieved something for all the years they given to company.

    Pros

    Good people working there...some have become life-long friends of mine. I like how the company hired people of all different ages...so you didn't feel like it's all young twenty-thirty somethings like some companies I have worked at.

    Cons

    Management is too nit-picky. Slow progress to make any changes from standard operating procedures. Cannot keep abreast of the competition with competitive pricing in their products.

    Advice to Management

    Back up the people who support you and be more positive and encouraging. Pointing out good work versus only mentioning the negatives.
