    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Not a lot of overtime/weekend work, typically M-F 8-5. My immediate manager is good, loyal to both me and the company to provide a balanced approach. Generally I'm left alone to do my job. Plenty of opportunity to move vertically within the company, career growth, due to turnover.

    Cons

    Upper management is severely vision limited and can't see beyond their immediate goals. The job is not challenging at all. Very little engineering and WAY too much QA paperwork/process. Most of the creative development is being transferred to China/India operations, and we're expected to support developing their abilities. Managers don't recognize abilities, provide challenges or provide continued training. There's very little technical growth opportunities, practically no real continuing education opportunities. The consent decree has produced a culture of overbearing innovation-stifling caution. Not for the creative types. Upper level engineering management apparently thinks there is no longer the expertise required to tackle the tough jobs locally. A good way to lose your technical relevance.

    Advice to Management

    Look past the immediate product to see what's needed next. The current marketing group has no clue and needs to put more effort into market research based on up-to-date technology rather than existing functionality. Take a little risk because taking no risk is actually a major risk. Trust in your engineers abilities to solve tough problems. Invest in your technical resources locally and stop trying to outsource jobs where the abilities are limited at best. Definitely don't expect your local talent to train outsourced talent. A quality product is not produced by producing a mountain of QA paperwork. Let the teams spend more time on actual development within NPI programs.
