    Pros

    Good work life balance. Work schedule can be very flexible. Very good social community within the company.

    Pros

    A great place for engineers looking to tackle real world problems in a tight schedule. Senior members in team are a great source for mentoring and truly guide you through the process of problem solving. Company is very much vested in training its employees to use the right engineering tools to solve problems in more efficient way. Senior management provides a quarterly update on how the company is performing and gives a reality check whether we are on target to meet goals, it is very encouraging.

    Cons

    1. Need to provide more exposure to engineers to international make sites. Gap between make site knowledge and head office is increasing.

    Advice to Management

    1, Encourage more team building exercises.
    2. Provide more benefits to employees.
