    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is a comfortable working environment with flexible hours. The benefit is comparable to other high tech companies in the area.

    Cons

    Like many other big companies, the innovative sparks within the organization is rarely seen. The working environment is comfortable, but a little dull.

    Advice to Management

    The management can be more transparent. It will also help to reduce the size of management team to cut cost and to improve efficiency.
