    Pros

    Lots of challenging work and a great product. If you are not up to the mark, you will struggle here.

    Cons

    There is always more work to do than people to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some dead wood and a few disgruntled engineers. They are spoiling it for the rest of us.

    Pros

    Some interesting technical challenges for the niche market.

    Cons

    Upper management is awful, lots of lying and backstabbing and two-facedness. There are LOTS of people there who don't do much but keep their jobs because of politics and/or spouses/family members, if you aren't associated with someone in upper mgmt. you will be asked to carry the weight of those people while getting paid less. Salary is very uncompetitive. Mgmt is non-appreciative. This is NOT a job for someone who is excited to be working in this industry and willing to heavily contribute, you will not be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Remove current upper management, they are just awful.

    Pros

    There is some interesting technology here and some smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Management is opaque. They don't tell the employees anything. Mgmt is unfair, they hire friends, family and practice favoritism. Employees are teated as expendable and just cogs in the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront with emplyees. Tell them what is going on. Pay them fair salaries and treat them better.

    Pros

    Some of the technical non-managers are quite experienced and are good to work with, you can learn things from them.

    Cons

    Mgmt is terrible. They hire their friends and their spouses and give special treatment to the people they hang out with over more qualified employees. Furthermore, Mgmt has no clue what employees are doing what projects and who is contributing, which makes it impossible for them to assess employees' abilities. Mgmt also underpays their employees, you can make quite a bit more somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced managers and be more professional.
