    Pros

    Good engineers, good processes, management has realistic expectations, good perks/benefits, management understands the value engineers bring to the company

    Cons

    Product Management group immature and has little (if any) oversight, no standards, no reviews of their work, no quality, etc... it's quite sad as I think they are really holding back growth.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp entire product management group, get more specialized/expert resources into engineering processes and don't rely on software engineers to do everything. Let them code.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, like health insurance, IRA, training
    Conscientious and considerate managers
    Challenging and rewarding work

    Cons

    Uncertainty as many of the markets they lead in are starting to slow down. The company can buy companies to boost its lineup, however the outlook may not be bright for teams working on products in segments that are experiencing little or no growth.

    Pros

    Smart people, challenging work, passion for customers. Financially conservative as a company. Generous to those who perform. Acquisition by Intel a major win -- deep pockets, long-term view.

    Cons

    Very lean; tend to overload their best and brightest. Marketing focused on lead-generation over long-term customer advocacy and experience focsu, though with new CMO that may change.
