    Pros

    Very smart and cooperative colleagues, very cutting edge innovations, working on products that have a very wide reception. Conditions and remuneration are also pretty good.

    Cons

    The intracompany communication is not very good , you have to rely on your personal network. The stress level is pretty high, often you have to meet "impossible " timelines with insufficient resources.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciation is a key for motivation, and is only real if done by deeds, not only words. Give the guys more transparency about what is going on, don't let them wait too long on final decisions.

    Pros

    Great products, interesting work, and great people. Salary is competitive, but don't expect too many other perks. Work-life balance is heavy on the work side.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement, red tape, and senior management interference. This shows lack of trust and the constant interference ripples through the organization causing undue stress and anxiety. The employees spend more time jumping through hoops than developing products.

    Advice to Management

    Less criticizing and more coaching. Empower your managers and employees to make decisions. Put more focus on your customer relationships. Recognize that you are not the smartest person in the company and leverage your experts.

  8. The company goes well. Automotive Infotainment department is not in a fast growing market.

    Change the current mode of the navigation market.
