    Pros

    Less stressful working environment
    Easy to proceed the projects by helping each other between the groups, rather than competing
    Excellent colleagues to work together

    Cons

    trying to set up central system which is required to become a large company, but there are many loop holes in those systems at this moment
    Lack of long term direction

    Advice to Management

    Need to reconsider "cost-saving" strategy added to "margin-only" one. By paying a little more on these, the lifetime of many products and hence the revenue will increase a lot

    Pros

    It's a nice campus and alright salary. In the beginning, things seemed to be really great and management was helpful.

    Cons

    Managers have no people management skills whatsoever. You might be lucky enough to get a good manager, but most of them have their own agenda and try to micromanage every little thing. They try to humiliate you as much as possible at the interview and give off a very condescending vibe to "test you". At first, I believed people were friendly and wanted to help, but there are definitely some rotten personalities there.

    Also, the retention rate is very low. Everyone quits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop preaching so much and actually listen to your employees.
