    I worked at E6 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The work was intellectually challenging with interesting R&D and engineering problems. There was much science and engineering to learn. Coworkers were friendly nice people.

    Cons

    Middle and senior management were promoted from within, therefore they lacked depth or breadth of technical skills. The CEO Cyrus Jilla was fired by the Board of Directors and the new CEO was hired from within.
    Their management skills were not developed by training nor were they mentored and they were very lacking in people skills with favouritism rife. Salaries in the UK are not up to international levels and they only pay competitive wages when they have no choice.
    There was little development of technical skills of the scientists or engineers. You were expected to learn from reading the literature. If your skills no longer fit or were useful to the company, you were forced out.
    There was little opportunity for advancement as there were few career paths available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shuffle the middle and senior management people to prevent favouritism. Bring in new "blood" with diversified backgrounds.
