* Little or no sharing between projects
* Career growth limited if you don't read and write Mandarin
* No stock options, RSUs etc.

Advice to Management

Senior management appear to grow and succeed in the US. However, middle management appears to be threatened, and make it difficult for those plans to succeed.

    Pros

    Most people at the company are good to work with.

    Cons

    Management discourage contractors to clock in for overtime hours but expect them to get the job done, however, that can only be possible if they work overtime. Many are miserable and are looking to get the heck out. There are way too many flaws in the internal software system, and it takes months to try to get thngs corrected with no improved change. The company doesn't seem to CARE to correct them, which is very dissapointing. I was told that this company isn't even owned by its employees as proclaimed. This company is very shady.

    Advice to Management

    Be FAIR. Respecting your workers will result in a better working atmosphere.
