    I worked at Leeco full-time

    Pros

    Local team members were great!
    Free lunches (while it lasted)

    Cons

    Management in Main Office did listen to folks in the US. Main HW engineering team did not want to meet US carrier requirements, hence we did not get acceptance.
    Lots of seemingly superfluous spending.

    Advice to Management

    I wish local teams were given more influence for products that were for our market, so if you try it again, listen.
