Pros

They pay isn't bad, although don't count on raises once you get in and they had a 5% salary cut in the summer of 2010. They also don't push the engineering teams as much as other departments - or to be more accurate, they don't get flogged as much when they cannot deliver 125% year after year.

Cons

Being an engineering driven company (Dana's words) can be acceptable as long as they understand they have to deliver, every other function is a support group. DH's problem is when engineering slips schedules, fails to meet cost targets, and doesn't deliver acceptable reliability and function the rest of the teams take the blame. The engineering team is good, but the expectations across the board are unrealistic. However, to state this (and worse yet, demonstrate it before mgmt accepts the slip) is paycheck suicide.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For those 2 at the top, leave. For those one level down, stop staying silent to keep the paycheck coming and start pushing back for realistic schedules and to deliver the right products.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, telecommuting (except under some managers).
    Some people do not even have a office at work.

    Cons

    The company has been loosing money for many years in row. So they're not being generous with employees. No or small raises. No training. No promotion.

    Economy is taking a toll on the company. Lack of vision for the long term future. New technology completed too soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to think about the long term success of this company. Decisions should be more well thought out prior to putting them in action.
