      Pros

      Was a very good place to work

      Was not a lot of room to move up. They recommend you leave and then come back or stay in the same position.

      Working Environment

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Fast Pace Learning. 2. Famous Company

      Cons

      1. The company is quite focusing on the announcement and release of the wearables devices every year which means employees don't have much of time in designing, verification, trial runs. The whole schedule is always intense. 2. The salary is under-estimated than industry average. 3. The cost scoping for each project is quite limited.

      Okay for starting

      Nov 13, 2021 - Software Engineer in Olathe, KS
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      • Decent for a first time job as a software engineer. • Pretty much every person I’ve worked with has been extremely kind and willing to assist in any way they can.

      Cons

      • No remote work for a job that can be done remotely. I’ve lost count how many people have left because of this. Management doesn’t seem to realize that unless they change their ways, they’ll continue to struggle with retaining/gaining new talent. • Overloaded with work, leading to a lot of burn out. Pumping out more product than there’s resources available to properly develop and maintain. • Low salary pretty much across the board. • Location isn’t great, unless you prefer living in the suburbs. Otherwise you’ll be commuting pretty far from KC.
