    I worked at O2Micro full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, helpful people who know the technology. Lot of support for innovation and patents.

    Cons

    Small company has lot of competition and so it is difficult when economy is rough. New technology requires lot of money to be invested which is not easy for small company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with innovation and sooner or later success will come. Continue focus on what the people are good at doing. Also good to put more money in R&D.
