Pros

I enjoy working at Link A Media Devices as there is always something to learn with everyone wearing multiple hats. Management truly cares about the workforce and always has an open door policy to addressing any concerns. Compensation is average for the industry and they offer a good benefits package with low employee contribution rates. There is truly a family-type work environment which makes the thought of leaving a challenging one.

Performance reviews are conducted annually alongside merit increases; depending on performance, off-cycle increases are not unheard of. Nightly catered dinners, and flex hours help to mold the start-up feel. If you are looking for career growth and a great work opportunity, this is the place to be.

Cons

Long work hours can hinder a true work/life balance. Expected in a start-up, but can be daunting.

No current 401k match as a benefit to employees.

Advice to Management

Implement a 401k match. Increase the vacation max so that employees who don't have the opportunity to take vacation don't lose any vacation time accrual.

    Pros

    Good work exposure since this is a start-up. If you are an asian...this is definitely the place to be!
    Language is a very big barrier when it comes to group discussions.
    If you can align yourself to your manager...then you might make it big. Else...try your luck elsewhere.

    Cons

    Language based favouritism.
    There are no performance reviews what-so-ever! If you are lucky..you might get a raise. There will not be any feedback given to you regarding your work.

    Advice to Management

    1) Have a compulsary performance review every year. It does not matter if it is not linked to raises. 2) Force the VPs to have skip level meetings with the common engineer. They have no idea what the engineer feels about her/his work.
    3) Make sure you count prior work experience of your employees.
