    Employees are extremely self motivated.
    Opportunities exist for employees who wants to perform well.
    Fair remuneration scale.

    ConsPersonal interest of some senior management interferes with their work and objectivity.

    It was a fairly positive experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Spartanburg, SC

    ProsI was able to use every talent that I had, and i always felt appreciated for contributing to daily functions

    ConsThere was a lot of overtime that was unrewarded because of the nature of the budget. It's okay until you are doing it all the time

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust keep treating your employees well, and when the option is available, do offer them financial incentives and bonuses (whenever that may be)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Not a place for long term employment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Anaheim, CA

    ProsFriendly staff
    Good engineering team
    Very flexible working conditions
    A good place to start working

    ConsCompany morale for non-managers tends to be very low
    No clear career advancement paths
    Lacking corporate support for US locations
    Benefits and salary are lacking

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement and employee teams are out of touch. Look to grow company wide instead of just meeting the status quo. Work on employee satisfaction, there seems to be little to no pride for employment in the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No clear career development plan

    Principal R&D Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsDuring initial period of 2000, large profit sharing & Share option which can compensate the lower salary scheme. Starting middle of 2000, change in HR which claim salary review to match market value, the profit sharing drop to very low and no more share option or restricted share option. Better be share holder than employee as the monetary value will be higher.

    ConsTight control in running company, up to hiring of operators which required CEO approval. Depend largely on customer projects, so it's like no clear view of future projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the staff welfare in term of financial or recreational. Not only on the revenue goal.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working in an oversized provision shop-large company having outdated practices

    Finance (Former Employee)
    Ang Mo Kio New Town (Singapore)

    ProsNot many pros of working there except that there is a bonus given out in around March/April

    ConsCulture is really bad and managers are secretive. Most people are demoralized. Pay increment is poor and there is almost zero training. Engineers are sent to JB so they can be paid less.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't scrimp on every cent. Retain your workers by giving benefits and reward performance, instead of waiting for staff to resign and hire new ones.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Venture R&D

    R&D Engineer (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGood exposure with lot of product development opportunities. Fast product development cycle. Less office politics. Engineering skill is much appreciated by nature as product is commercialize into market place.

    ConsBasically very few training. Need to pick up everything on your own. Very less guidance and advise from management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementR&D is a powerful tool, please don't think we're expensive. There are many products still design in high cost country while production in much lower cost factory than in Malaysia.
