    Pros

    Great work life balance. Great team work environment. Great management (at least the team I am in). Decent chance to hone skills that are desirable in market.

    Cons

    Constant anticipation of company restructuring. Unclear path of career advancement. Less than satisfactory level of company wise know-how integration. Company value departmentalized, some great values were not shared from team to team, largely depending on the attitude of said team management.

    Advice to Management

    Operation cash flow planning in accordance with fiscal cycle is important, but caution should be taken to avoid morale trap that chills knowledge sharing and work enthusiasm.
