    Pros

    The salary was good. flexible time. Sometimes the works are interesting. People are general nice over there. stock purchase and stock option are nice.

    Cons

    The company was poorly managed. They miscalculated the market and made products that were either late or do not meet customer requirement. They have lay off all the time, sometimes twice a year. Don't have any job security.

    Advice to Management

    Find better people in marketing. Due to too many layoffs and usually the workers go first, there are too many managers and not enough workers. Get rip off some the managers.
