    Pros

    Sustaining company, ample freedom at work, great colleague.

    Cons

    The company management simply don't have any direction.
    The company lose focus on the market needs and focus on what they think the market might needs.
    Too many VPs and management staff make it hard to steer to the right direction.
    The marketing guys are sleeping, where is the sales??
    No advancement opportunities in career or training.
    Terrible management staff.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the micro array product and find out what is the other products that our customer needs. Put all the strength, manpower, resources in it.
    Shift the company out of Singapore, they are not helping us in cost saving. Frank, the loading is not high now. So perhaps it's time we start small again here in US, our own country. Can you believe how many manager and director in Singapore site? Is there really a cost save??
    Marketing and sales staff really need to work harder, is anyone monitoring the situation??
