    Pros

    Broad Spectrum of tasks. Very Innovative and lot of great projects. Great place to get good technical experience. The work atmosphere is relaxed and not too much politics in most groups.
    If you stick around for 2+ years you will get 4 weeks of PTOs and then some more 5+

    Cons

    If the company doesn't meet yearly revenue target no bonus for anyone. Without the bonus the salary is not completive with out similar jobs. If they don't meet these target 2 years in a row lot of competent people leave and it takes forever to refill those positions.


  2. Fast paced, lots of potential with the right changes

    Pros

    Great benefits, people, and technology. Lots of vacation too. Company is on the leading edge of many things and has a good stategic vision.

    Cons

    Company is in a transition. The mindset is there, but some anchor draggers are still slowing the company down. Information is sometimes hard to come by internally.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a plan and stick to it at all costs. Lean is the way of the future, remove internal barriers and anchor draggers.

    Pros

    You will be responsible for everything - right from inception to delivery. You will own, design and deliver modules which includes unit testing and integration. You will be noticed and acknowledged if you take initiative.

    Cons

    If you don't take initiative, then chances are that you may be given work that you may not like or enjoy. You probably will not be involved in the decision making process.

    Advice to Management

    Management could do with encouraging and / or helping engineers take initiative and play to their strengths
