Pros

A place that is willing and acknoledges ideas and works to improve the work and quality of the work environment for all. You are able to grow within the company and they also encourage you to grow and accel.

Cons

Losing my job to restructering which was not the companies fault it is just the nature of all businesses because the work ebbs and flows with the financial time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    You certainly gain plenty of experience as an engineer, working on several projects at once. The core group of engineers who have stuck around long-term are mostly a very nice and intelligent group.

    Cons

    Everything is managed like a start-up. Pay is not competitive. Performance reviews are harsh across the board, seemingly to keep salaries down. The volume of work and level of pressure are unsustainable for most people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people for the level of work expected instead of giving it all to top management. The good engineers at the bottom learn pretty quickly that they're getting the raw end of the deal, and it destroys morale.

    Pros

    Excellent design challenges and a lot of troubleshooting. Great colleagues who are willing to help and often friendly to chat with.

    Cons

    Often pulled in many different directions. Must be able to multitask across different projects and debug efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to purchase S/W tools or licences if the Engineers say they need them.
