Pros

I had the opportunity to work with some great people and learned a lot in this particular role. I also liked the flexible schedule/remote working ability.

Cons

A lot of power politics - information is often highly controlled and trying to get relevant information was a challenge at times. There are some people who have managed to make it to leadership roles that are not, in my opinion, quite ready to be there. Leadership entails the ability to listen.

Advice to Management

monitor progress of those transitioning into lead roles. Some of them are not quite ready for their roles.

    Pros

    Smart people in some engineering positions. Good GPU technology. Good ideas on Heterogenous computing. Open standards for Heterogenous Computing. Reasonable compensation.

    Cons

    Culture rewards over promising - constant sense if you don't say you can deliver you'll be part of the next RIF. Management does not listen when told something is not feasible given available resources. Product delays are common and failure to launch products is causing competitive problems.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to engineers. Be wary of "Dead Sea Syndrome" - talented people are evaporating from company.
