    Pros

    Stress technical performance with almost no political. Most management are hand-on persons; Super product flow to guarantee chip quality

    Cons

    Product lines are not broad enough; Number of customers are limited; Often product sales depend on just a few, and if missing one customer's one generation of machine, it could result in consequence.

    Advice to Management

    Apply the technology to broad product lines.
