    Pros

    people are generally nice and helpful.. the lab is very well prepared.. the cafeteria and the gym are very cool..

    Cons

    senior management is too busy to invest in their employees.. and the company has no direction.. it's very reactive to the competition..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to your employees.. invest in their learning.. share your vision with the engineering teams.. a little less politics would be nice..

    Pros

    Compensation was average to above average and benefits were average to above average. Relatively laid back working environment. Very structured and efficient production environment.

    Cons

    Not the highest level of technical ability, there were some very good people and some very poor people technically. If you are competent you can advance. style valued over substance by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on accomplishments and not activity or presentations. Value people of value, not people who sound like they have value. Eliminating dead weight will help with cost savings and efficiency.
