    Pros

    You will work in a friendly environment with knowledgeable people to learn from. It is a good industry to work for as you can take this experience and apply it to many other industries.

    Cons

    They don't really groom and invest on employee training as much as some other companies. This is one of the reason they are not really the top company in their relative field.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare leaders within your employees. Groom the young guys to ensure they stay with the company for long as the knowledge they gain about the product and company would be lost if they are not kept around for long.
