Pros

Learn a lot of from peers and managers. Good sharing environment.

Cons

As with many large companies, difficult to learn about other divisions / job functions that help make the company successful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more cross functional training - allow it fit into normal work hours ie do not make current job function 100% of the employee's time.

    Intense place to work and learn. Great support and systems, but a new mission every year

    Pros

    Excellent learning systems.
    Solid new product development process.
    Projects that start make it to production.
    Good recognition for creating production parts.

    Cons

    Upper management is not customer and systems focused; most energy is spent looking inside the company. Main result is that project launch late and therefore need huge teams to meet very aggressive cycle times. There is a lot of management interference during projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on improving the new product idea engine. Get more mileage out of each technology/IP platform. Don't launch multiple large projects on a platform until it is ready.
