    Excellent work experience and plentiful opportunities to broaden horizons

    Firmware Development Engineer (Former Employee) Aveiro (Portugal)

    ProsLots of projects to be involved with and a good working environment, state of the art equipment and plentiful opportunities to learn new technologies
    Management is somewhat easygoing, at least in the group I was working, altough they were also very aware of the deadlines, so do not expect any kind of slackers!

    ConsSomewhat difficult to get the message trough tough, paperwork could be rearranged to get the most out of your work without getting in the way
    Overtime work was not valued as I think it should be, but when it was deemed necessary I never had any problem with it.
