Stressful at times, rewarding at times and surrounded by really smart people.

Pros

Job satisfaction. It's wonderful to work with people who are really good at what they do. If you're not sure of something, there's always an expert to call on.

Cons

The stress is intense at times. A whole team of people can be working flat out (including going to China) on a prototype build of your design and you don't even know if it'll work. There's not much work life balance.

Advice to Management

I commute 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day. I've proven I can do the job - it would be nice (and more productive) if management were more open to my working from home.

    Pros

    Can be fun somewhat, but don't expect a warm fuzzy "welcome to the family" approach after your 2nd month. It's ok in the beginning, but the claws come out around the 3rd month.

    Cons

    Staff is mean spirited & VERY clickish. If they don't like you, the co-workers will make it difficult for you on a daily basis. Hours are also very UNFLEXIBLE.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to move up the ladder & out & take care of your people.
