    Pros

    Lots of smart engineers with good attitudes.

    Cons

    some engineers aren't paid what they deserve
    some engineering groups have serious management problems that aren't being addressed
    has glaring "big company" issues wherein problems that should be easy to fix, aren't, due to bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    - try to be more organized and not waste engineering time flailing about
    - engineers aren't compensated with bonuses the same way some marketing/sales people are
    - recognize and address why some managers have a very high employee turnover rate
