    Pros

    Work on leading edge products and industry technology. Engineering and lower level management can be trusted. Experienced and veteran staff members to help you grow.

    Cons

    Executive management communicates poorly with employees and conceals the financial health of company. (This is a Private Company) No formal operational concrete standard procedures and policies. Employee must develop their own. Understaffed and employee must take on multiple roles. Workload can be taxing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more conservative with fiscal spending and develop concrete revenue forecast to get a better grip of reality. Save for the rainy day.
