    Exciting work with great people, but lacking upper management and leadership

    ProsFriendly co-workers and good work/family balance. Several senior engineers available for support and resource for knowledge. Benefits are pretty good.

    ConsUpper management lacks leadership, vision, and direction. Constant changes in org, and pretty much everything else. Decisions made with little or no information.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to low level managers, they know more than upper managers.
