    Pros

    Amazing technology (like really really best-in class transient CFD solution), lot of expert people in their respective fields. This company could take over the full CFD market if guided properly.
    Excellent work/life balance if you want .
    Lot of potential for the company.
    You can really solve tough industry problems nobody else can.

    Cons

    Limited career growth. Low starting salary and slow salary growth.
    Hard work and commitment are not correctly rewarded.
    Bad business decisions from senior management, (lack of) vision based on short term revenue. Micro-management.
    Everything is plummeted by slow software development guided by deprecated best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Be open-minded about business ideas originating from regular employees.
    Promote further mid-term and long-term R&D investments.
    Trust people, stop micro-managing. Be more careful about expenses vs return on investment for strategic decisions especially software-related.
    Develop/deliver new software features faster. Use software development best practices.
    Reward success faster, and especially commitment. Start treating better hard working employees.
    Look beyond automotive industry, further explore other markets.
