    Pros

    Great place to work at. Competent people and good salaries

    Cons

    Some works, if you like challegens might get you bored, if you are an intern.
    That must not occur when you have a regular job, though.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify activities so people get involved and stimulated all the time.

    Pros

    Not a lot of extra headcount so you are pulled into projects that you might not get exposed to in other companies. You are pulled out of your comfort zone and can really grow your skills.

    Cons

    Everyone is expected to work very hard and put in long hours. Money is not thrown around lightly so resources can be limited sometimes. Salary is pretty good and benefits are average.

    Advice to Management

    The management and enviornment in Corporate HQ is very conservative and old-fashioned. Comany needs to become more employee-friendly and flexible if they are going to keep up with the changing dynamics of the workplace.

    Retain people is important. Equal oppotunity and fare treatment is important. This applies to both young and senior engineers

    Pros

    Disciplined and ethical company that focuses on sustained growth. Is a good place to work for people that are looking to interface with many different industries.
