Pros

I had a high level of autonomy in how I approached projects. Manager was just the best. Relaxed atmosphere. Very intelligent co-workers who were mostly electrical engineers. Worked with the latest versions of Developer Express and AutoCAD and used them on a very fast workstation.

Cons

IT locked down the machines, hindering my abilities to install software to get my work done. Very industrial and antiquated offices.

Advice to Management

Provide new hires with a guide of what to study in order to start deeloping for the systems.

    Pros

    Overall a good environment with good people. The shop has good, though old equipment. Production runs smoothly most of the time. Company supplies all tools so the cost of employment is very small. Reasonably relaxed environment.

    Cons

    When they say "some overtime" they mean don't plan on ever having just 40 hrs (or really even 50)
    Still working to implement Six Sigma and often seems like there is little interest in doing it correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Connect expectations with the metrics, don't just make pretty pictures and fancy speeches.
