    Niche Product, Unstable Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Newbury Park, CA

    ProsGood pay, if you can survive the financial ups and downs
    Nice building and location
    Good people -- excellent knowledge and potential is here
    CEO seems to know proper direction for the product.

    ConsNot a stable company currently
    Sales fluctuate and salaries come and go too quickly
    Several people left this company or lost their jobs this year.
    Hours were cut across the board also.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on trying. Package the product better, get some well-known endorsements. Find new customers and new markets. Use the brilliant talent of people you already have. Stop cutting peoples hours, cut other things instead. Move into a smaller, cheaper building for instance. People are the lifeblood of your company. Remember that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't jump from one frying pan into this one...

    Engineering (Former Employee) Newbury Park, CA

    ProsManagement is easily sold on hiring new talent if you are cheaper than the next guy and embrace cultural work ethic similar to Mr. Lo's - work both US and CHINA hours. Fortunately, Mr. Kong, the VP and CTO is more experienced with not only business professionals, but the technology that would have given the company more success if they had better sales and marketing experts.

    Cons- low pay
    - no bonuses
    - no company community or team environment
    - non-US business values
    - constant turn over
    -angry/burned sales relationships within industry (poor reputation)

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow Mr. Kong to be the leader and push Lo to the Board. Hire more engineers, well read, well paid sales professionals, and add more trust to those running your company by stopping the "clocking in and out" for salaried employees.

    ConsLow pay. Owners extremely cheap and don't get along. Stuck on old products that don't work.

    Not a god place to work if you are ambitious; road to nowhere

    Senior Firmware Engineer (Former Employee)

    Prosnot too many good things to say

    Consnot a stable environment, work is not rewarded and engineers are overworked without rewards. Best if you are used to working in a chinese sweatshop or if you need a green card.

    Advice to Senior Managementeither invest in the technology and employees or please: fold

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
