Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help employees to continue to grow beyond their current competencies, especially if you expect them to... And if you delegate responsibility, it also means that you need to let go of some creative control.

    Pros

    good people at the bottom. great place to work techincally, some of the best engineers I've worked with in my career

    Cons

    people with no understanding of quality or how to make good products on top. performance measured by nepotism and egos, not actualy skill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to develop a culture that cares about quality and making good products. study the state of the art, try to catch up.
