    4. Any one can do anything with equal efficiency - management motto
    5. Management is least bothered as which area you want to work when under pressure of delivery and expect high level of efficiency and gives very little learning time

    Advice to Management

    1. Listen to what engineers have to say
    2. Do prudent budgeting to be just and not make few happy and others unhappy


  2. Great work but too much unnecessary stress.

    Pros

    Great technical learning on the job.
    Lots of new things happening.
    Opportunity to make a difference.
    Work on the latest stuff.

    Cons

    Late hours .
    No slack periods to de-stress .
    Unmeetable deadlines.
    Lack of transparency.
    Passing the buck to others and often encouraged by certain managers to paint a pretty picture to VPs etc. about themselves.
    Salaries not often at par with amount and complexity of work.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the 'no' people are really the deserving ones who necessarily donot agree with everything you say , because the manger or VP is not always right.
    Undeserving people abound and these 'yes' people ( better to hire parrots instead ) keep acting like they are doing all the work when in fact they are not doing anything useful at all and these people end up in getting promotions and great salaries as well.
    Because of this you are losing some really good people , often with what looks like without a care in the world. The problems will come after a year.
    Stop the 'passing the buck' syndrome. See who are really working and who are passing the buck all the time.
