Pros

When you are working for a good manager, they will go to bat for you. They have a good eye for ability and talent and will reward you for that. The promotion process has been steadily improving since 08/09. They understand the work load is unsustainable and understand prioritizing work results in some lower priority tasks not being completed at all.

Cons

There are far too many poor managers who get promoted to the position simply because they were bad at their non-managerial role and is less disruptive to have a bad manager than go through the bureaucratic termination process. Morale is generally low division wide. Work loads are excessive division wide.

Advice to Management

Always have your employees back so long as they did not break procedure, understand and help your employees achieve their career goals, create new job roles for the ever changing business climate to best use the existing talent, do more work in house and less subcontracting to develop greater internal engineering resources.

    Pros

    401K match, company paid health insurance (now I hear you have a deductible), good work life balance (almost too good), paid overtime

    Cons

    Most of the projects worked had 1:1 ratio of managers to engineers. It's very top heavy. However, before I left, they started pink slipping all the upper people that weren't adding value to the company.

    Company specialty is hardware. It does not know how to write "good" software. Most managers will assign whoever they want to "code" regardless of technical background.

    Budgets come and go. Not a good working environment if you want long term ownership of a project.

    Advice to Management

    Find way to entice more engineers into management. Most engineers don't want to become managers at this company. That shouldn't be the norm, especially with lots of young engineers to mentor.
