    Pros

    Great place to work in if you want to gain the experience of doing everything, system, software, firmware, asic, algorithm, ip, integration, implementation, fpga, customer support, you name it - all in one position

    Depends on your capability, you may get a little to busy, your management might have a little bit too much expectation on what you and your team can reasonably do in the 7 days of 24 hour each

    Advice to Management

    They should do focus more to stabilize a high level middle term plan ( and not change it every 2 months), and delegate to employees to execute the plan in best way
