    Internal processing (from HQ) can hinder the growth process in US.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit/restructure products to meet different customers/markets.

    "Traditional Taiwanese Company run like a small/medium business"

    Pros

    - ISV leader in PC OEM business, but PC industry is weak
    - Talented and hard working engineers. Great support team in Taiwan
    - Colleagues are hard working

    A Taiwanese company run like a small cap company with 100 employees. Top exec oversees every little detail.

    Cons

    - Too cheap
    - Traditional ways of management, found back in the 1960s
    - clueless on marketing and branding in the US
    - Control freaks

    One of the mission statement goals is FRUGALITY. This says it all!! CL admits they are cheap. Promotions are non-existent unless you slave away 12-14 hours a day and listen to CEO's wishes 100%.

    For marketing, uses strange English names to market English locales or incorrect words to market to European locales. Top execs don't listen to those in charge of their locale.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and learn to trust employees' talents and nurture them. It's only 1 way or the highway.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, high salary, and the chance to work with some very smart people.
