About drinking from the firehose and firefighting

Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
Livermore, CA

ProsTechnology is very good and unique, work in general is interesting and dynamic, very talented and capable technical people. Although work load may not allow it at present, management is supportive of work-life balance as a principal. Fundamentally in a good niche market with high long term potential

ConsScrambling to regain market share, many parallel technical efforts being pushed without adequate staffing and resources - too hectic and dynamic. Attrition is getting to be high,
and in a place where systems are not in place, that is a significant loss of know-how, making it difficult for the persons remaining to carry on. Company grew too fast for its own good.
Company prefers to getting outsiders (from more established companies) for key leadership positions rather than growing employees from within.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more customer friendly,
Develop and promote from within,
Invest in systems to reduce inefficiencies and costly errors.
Develop competency in other areas in addition to spring technology.
