Pros

- engineers have vertical assignments. Responsible for all aspects of design from architecture, RTL entry, verification, schematics, layout, etc.
- lots of opportunities to do new things within your group
- technical leadership opportunities

Cons

- too much planning on what to do vs. actually doing what needs to be done (make sense?)
- more competition than collaboration between groups and cross-functional teams
- too often the solution to a solve a technical problem is to call long meetings

Advice to Management

Help engineers understand that they need to be responsible for their work

    can be a bit hard to push new ideas and change suggestions - but in some pockets of company the culture is very open to change.

    Advice to Management

    Well done on financials! Please communicate re organizations better and earlier to the employees. Please pay more attention to engineering employees work-life balance.
