    Pros

    Industry leader, financially solid, with a stable executive management team.
    CEO Aart is viewed as industry visionary and is extremely well respected within the employee ranks. Co-CEO Chi Foon is very approachable and is always willing to have open discussions with rank and file employees. Almost all the people that you work with are very customer success driven and the company consistently outperforms the competition and successfully grows the business.

    Cons

    Company is in an extremely cost driven, commodity market. Customer expectations have created an unhealthy 24/7 environment. All levels of management are under high pressure to grow business while reducing expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Aart's visionary style does not translate to the GM and Sr VP levels. GMs and Sr VPs have very incremental management styles and they are many times unable or unwilling to make tough choices. They rarely take any true risks. All growth has been through acquisitions and the company strategy is not investing enough in the growth (ie hiring more people) of the core products (bleeding the core product profits too much to fund the IP strategy).
